I have been trying to understand how I can get some OTR training when I can't.get work because I have no drive time experience and I want to get my CDL. Please help...
Two ways I can think of getting a CDL. Go to a Truck training school or join up with one of the companies that train. Either way is going to cost you one way or another. The school is a lot of money. The companies will have you sign a contract to stay for so long to pay for the training. You quit, you owe them money. There used to be another way and depending on your state, may still exist. Join the military and learn there. Then get grandfathered by the state for the CDL. You'll still have the same problem though, no commercial experience.
If you can afford it, check your state laws about driving a tractor trailer for pleasure
