This is why, when you are reviewing a driver’s application to work for your company, you can’t just ask for the bare minimum. Just because they have a license that states ‘CDL’ on it does NOT mean they are qualified to drive – and not just for you, but at ALL. There was a case when a man applied for a job with his CDL in hand, and, after the company pulled his criminal record, found that he had certain convictions which disqualify him from EVER driving with a CDL for hire. Yet, there he was, with a brand-new license with ‘CDL’ printed on it – POST his convictions.
CDL schools are businesses too; they have a bottom line, and they have the ability to ‘train’ anyone who is willing to pay.
