    I am going to give you a great peace of advice - go get a class A license.

    It doesn't matter what you have driven before, it is easier to get trained for a class A, pass the test and then you can drive anything.

    Try a community college first. Tn has them, only about 1400 bucks for 4 weeks and u dont have to pay the 6000 or 8000 the rip off schools charge. There is one in Nashville and Chattanooga State.
    Knowledge is what expediters need, well back to driving, right guys?

    Your mind will always run smoother, quieter, and without piston slap when you change your oil,,now for your car engine.....

    Go to your local school district and apply as a bus driver they'll train you and you'll make some cash while your deciding if you want to get into this biz. cost $0,experience of a lifetime driving a group of unsupervised kids on a 20mile trip home after they have been in school all day with no PE.Surive and you can make it as an expediter.

    Grab a CDL book from the DMV, BMV whatever they call it in your state, study the class b section and take the written and driving test, you may need to rent or borrow a truck for the test, Why spend alot of money on a school? Here in Indiana I am driving a under 26K/under CDL straight truck with air brakes, a class b truck is basically the same, it allows for more weight to be hauled.

    My thoughts exactly! Why pay for training if you already have driven a fire truck. Get a CDL handbook from KY DOT and read and study it. Or as suggested, get your for hire endorcement on your liscense and a health card and drive under 26000 with no road test. Or at least that is all that is required in TN.

    They call it a Chauffeurs license here in Indiana, but it is not for transporting people, freight only in an under 26k truck

    If you are currently laid off the govt. will pay for you to get a cdl at an approved school. I'm in Louisville, KY and these guys are as well. I've heard pretty good things about them. They rush you through the class but you would be hard pressed to find one that doesn't.

    I do not know what KY. requires for CDL-B, but I agree with some others here to go get the CDL handbook from the BMV and study it and take the tests. Here in Ohio for a CDL-B total cost is around $250.00-$275.00 That includes taking the written general knowledge and air brakes test at BMV, temp. CDL, straight truck rental already on site for pre trip, skills test, road test and issue CDL-B. Here in Ohio you will now have to show a current DOT medical card before your new CDL can be issued.
