I don't have any specific names, but checked with my s/o, who is in law enforcement and he said the best way is to enroll in a truck driving school. Check your options, because different ones offer different bonuses, etc

i have met many people who did it and were able to make decent money...at least enough to support their family...but you need the cdl license to get started...on that i'm clueless...

I have two brothers who have their CDL They started out driving log trucks. Now they own 4 tractor and trailers. I have heard good things about a company in Allentown (I think) called Pascal Trucking L ( I cant remember what the L word is) But the trucks have PTL on them as well as Pacal Trucking L (something)
