I drove for Swift in 2000 and lasted until 2001. I went through their training program. I was let go due to three preventable accidents, two were backing accidents. I haven't done much since then. I've been working for my dad painting, I've driven cab, and I worked for an AC/Heating delivery company doing non-cdl driving.
I really enjoyed driving, for the most part, and I was wondering if it would be possible to start over by going to another training company like Central Refrigerated Service? My DAC should be cleared of the preventable accidents by now. I am not eligible for rehire at Swift and for the past 5 years I've just been working for room and board.
I honestly believe that what I learned OTR years ago would serve me as I went through a starter school and training program a second time. I drove coast to coast, experienced all traffic and weather, mountain driving, pain in the butt docks, etc. I now know what it is actually like on the road and I know what questions to ask and what things to pay special attention to during training.
Any advice would be appreciated.
