how do you get a job as a truck driver when you need 6 months experience?
I've been looking around the internet for a good replacement job for myself. I am interested in becoming a truck driver and many of the options seem to be very lucrative and ideal for my situation. However, every single one of them requires me to have 6 months or more of Class A big rig driving experience in order to get the job. I have been looking for days and have not found anywhere that accepts a new driver with no experience. How do you get truck driving experience? Are there companies that train you, or courses that give you 6 months of experience? Thanks for the help.

Ride with an experienced driver for 6 months while being trained. That's how a friend on mine got himself on the road
