I'm just going to throw some advice at ya.
So, my husband and I are planning on moving to Florida next year and I'm wanting to take this opportunity to change careers. I've been in security for most of my adult life and I'm loving tired of wearing a polyester shirt and telling Karen to get her kids off of the goddamned sculptures.
If you go to a truck driving school, go to one in VA because FL is notorious for having scam schools. Go to a community college if possible.
Some companies like CRST (where I started) and Swift and England have their own schools. They are ok.
Absolutely do not sign on with a company as an owner operator at the beginning. It's much better to be a company driver at first so you don't have a huge investment in a job you may not like. There's a high burn-out rate in trucking because it involves a lot of time away from home.
Speaking of time away from home, are you planning to drive with your husband? Most trucking jobs as a rookie are the "Stay on the road for a week or two" type of jobs. Local runs can be had once you have experience.
That's all I have for now.
Keep the shiny side up and don't touch nothin'
