i failed, but have a cdl permit. will that hurt my chances at another company?

by Juelma

I attended a fast paced school through a company and failed. I really want this bad. I don't mind doing it all again.

I can back, drive, and know pretrip. I had problems with instructors getting sick while doing backing. Shit happens I know, but wasn't ready when time for testing.

So if I failed something I would find help. But I used my stupid wavers in Indiana. I got sent home and can't go back. I don't want this to be the end.

Will having gone through school and having a permit help me or hurt me when I try another company?

i figured they would let you keep trying till you past they were my first company out of a school i went to in Indiana ,i really don't kno the answer to your question ,i drove for 9 years bout to get back in it,id assume you could try somewhere else there are other companies that have the same option ,try them i got an owi in my personal vehicle ,in 2011,never get one of those and the 2nd offense is your cdl for life ,also ,i lost it for a year ,im just getting it back ,most companies want 2-3 years after a conviction ,i may have found one ,im waiting to hear back ,i pray ,and for you

Thanks! I really wish I had more time with the company that rhymes with CR England Lol. I really don't have a lot of bad to say. Its a good school and I really liked the instructors.

I just had some bad luck. My driving instructor was awesome. If I had gotten to keep what I passed I would have passed without a doubt because of him.

Damn unmissable curb got me coming out of the test site as it does with a majority of the students. I really believe that that is just wrong. In most states if you pass something its yours to keep and you don't have to do it again. But o well like I said shit happens cant change that.

I just don't want this to be the end. I don't have money, and I don't have verifiable work having been a stay at home mom for several years so my options is very small. But this is what I want to do and hope someone else give me a shot.

when i went to school had a student "fail" at well it rhymes with cr England:) he went on to get his license and even employed. this was 6 months ago:)he had trouble with the 45 backing when he came to school, was no problem once he finished school.

schools have more time to work with truck driver wannabes:) keep trying. OUR teachers told us women were better drivers so dont stop trying:)
