[Synopsis: Before you go for your CDL there are some things you need to know. Psst…here they are!]
As an operations manager, one of the first questions I asked anyone who walked in to apply for work was, “Do you have a CDL?”
That is, a commercial driver’s license, which allows you to operate large or extra heavy vehicles.
A “no” answer was fine. Obviously, having a CDL has nothing to do with one’s ability to be a hard-working mover. But more CDLs on the payroll means less chance of being stuck with a truck no one can drive. (Plus it got them thinking about the value of having one for themselves.)
For all of you who need CDL drivers now – and for all of you who plan to need them eventually – this feature is for you. We’re going to go over the basics to make your road to work as smooth as possible.
