What Companies Offer Refresher Courses ?.....For Used Truckers lol.

I am asking this question because it has been a while ( 11/07 ) since I last drove for a company. I had to leave Trucking due to a MISDIAGNOSED MEDICAL CONDITION,which I'm Currently Resolving ( I should be completed before my next D.O.T. Physical 5/2011 ).My License is currently up-to-date.


I was just wondering if there is a list or something available to help Me in My search. Thanks for any help You may offer. Ken D. Tucson,Az.

companies with refresher courses NEW
by: MD

ANY DRIVIERS LOOKING TO BE RETRAINED OR REFRESHED .....I SPOKE TO THESE COMPANIES RECENTLY SOME COMPANIES DO NOT TAKE DRIVERS IF THEY HAVE MORE THAN 18 MONTHS OF ANY KIND OF UNEMPLOYMENT WITHIN THE LAST 3 YEARS OR 5 YEARS, YOU HAVE TO CALL AND CHECK. .......................................................SWIFT ... MAY GIVE YOU A CHANCE, YOU CAN ALWAYS START TRAIN AND SWITCH LATER TO A BETTER COMPANY AFTER THE 90 DAYS IS UP SO YOU DON'T GET CHARGED FOR ORIENTATION AND OTHER FEES..YOU MAY HAVE TO GO OUT ON THE ROAD WITH A TRAINER FOR 4-6 WEEKS..................................................CELADON ... THEY MAY ACCEPT YOU BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO START ALL OVER AS IF YOU NEVER HAD A CDL AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GO TO CANADA YOU WOULD HAVE LEASE PURCHASE A TRUCK. I HAD A FRIEND THAT DID IT BUT HE DIDN'T GET GOOD LOADS AND STARTED LOSING TOO MUCH MONEY AFTER HE DID THE LEASE PURCHASE SO HE LEFT.................................................OZARK ... THEY SEND DRIVERS OUT WITH A TRAINER YOU MAY NOT NEED THE WHOLE 4 WEEKS BUT I THINK YOU HAVE TO GET A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF DRIVING TIME IN HOURS..IF YOU ARE A FEMALE THOUGH YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT A MONTH TO GO TO ORIENTATION DEPENDING ON HOW MANY OTHER FEMALES THERE ARE BECAUSE AT THIS TIME THERE'S ONLY 2 FEMALE TRAINERS....................................

Looking for a company that offers refresher training in Texas NEW
by: Walt3164

I am a retired Air Force Vehicle Operator/Dispatcher. I haven't driven a truck since I retired in 2013. What would be a good company to work for that offers refresher training. I was first licensed in 1996 on tractor/trailer combinations. Also did combat convoy driving in 2007.

Used Trucker....oh man thats funny!!!!
by: NickV

HAHA well Ken as long as your doc clears you for a d.o.t. physical you should be ready to roll. More than likely depending on your experience you may or may not have to take a refresher course. Local driver/training companies provide these but can sometimes be expensive. If you hook up with a company that wants you to take one then more than likely they will help you out with the bill. I had to take one with CRST and they split it with me. Just a week of driving, you get your physical and drug testing knocked out and have to wait for those results to come back before you drive so its usually wednesday before you can even get behind the wheel. Its easy and most of the time you will be thankful you did it. As far as jobs I would just start filling out apps or you can go to your local craigslist and look in jobs and go to transport. Good luck and keep us posted
