Experienced Michigan driver with CDL no recent driving exp

by Antonio Gonzalez
(Lincoln Park, MI)

I have driven for 8 years as a trucker and I had left to be a stay at home Father font Wife and I adopted a little girl at the age of 5.

My Wife was making great money then and was able to support us.
Then I hit another snag, in 2015 my Wife’s health turned bad and I have been caring for her since.

My Wife then applied for SSI Disability and was approved in just 6 months because her health is very bad.

I somehow need to get my foot back in the door in transportation.
I still have my CDL-A License and I just renewed it in April 2018.
I just need my MDOT card and can get my H endorsement which most companies require.

I have a clean DMV record, I went to school at Professional Drivers Institute and passed the top of my class.

I also have a certificate for completion of Defensive Driving Course also.

I did OTR when I started back in 1995 and 3 months later I went local, I really enjoy the shuttle runs that get me home daily.

Shuttle runs is mostly what I did was with Ford Mother Company.

So, trucking companies are declining your services because of recent experience? Try companies that do dangerous loads like gas hauling or steel that require hard physical work like securing loads with straps and chains along with tarping. Most driver's decline flatbed jobs because it requires such hard physical work. Or go to dry bulk. I have been out for 8 years. I just got hired by a company that does double covered wagons. I did an app, road test and drug test. Driving is like tieing shoes. You never forget. I just retired from a federal job with an excellent work history. I actually drove on the side for 7 years. Driving is more fun than my former federal job. Don't give up.

How long have you been off the road?
Do you want local or OTR?
Abilene Motor Express will probably hire you for OTR.
