that is atleast some kind of requirement. with C.R. England if you sign a lease they will give you a phase two student right away. doensnt matter. now some guys wait get some experience. and then some dont. they get the $$ in thier eyes. that is just not right at all in my book.So many companies only require 6 months exp to train.That't like the blind leading the blind. Hopefully that trainer gets his CDL taken away PERMINATELY.
