can they take my CDL?
Here is a question I received. A person graduated truck school and went to work for Schneider. They weren't making any money really so they quit. Because the truck school and Schneider were in cahoots, Schneider informed the school. Subsequently, the school contacted the driver and said that if they didn't get back to driving their CDL will be revoked. This is simply a LIE. Why would they say this? Well, they know that if you don't get back to work you are less likely to pay for your schooling, that's for sure. Now, if you agree to pay for the school, you should pay it. You owe it. Telling people a lie to get them back in a truck is not a good way to go, though. Your CDL is yours and cannot be taken for failure to pay a debt. Child support may be an exception but that is the state taking it, not some truck school. A private business has no power to take your license.
See you on the road!
