My reason to become a truck driver is to do something that's worthwhile something I can be proud to do.

See I recently lost my job and since that time its has been difficult to find work. to me its heartbreaking and sad, so I decide that I wanted to be a truck driver so that I can create a stable life for me and to help out my family.

I'm 27 going on 28,. I know I need my respectable driving license from my state (NC) but does it really matter how long you been behind the wheel of a car?

And another thing which is better; truck driving school done by a local community college or a company based training school?

Please try to explain that one to me.

I just wanted to stay thank you for your time and your services
