Congratulations to Marine James Truitt for completing his training and obtaining his CDL! “The [DMV] examiner told me I did really good– ‘[one of the] better drivers I’ve seen,’” he quoted them.
Before coming to CCS, he was looking at another local school. James mentioned the amount of time between starting class and actually stepping into a truck. “I would have had to wait… almost a month. I didn’t really want to wait that long,” so he decided to come to CCS since we put our students in our trucks right away. “I would tell anybody that wants to drive truck or bus about CCS.”
We talked to him about his future plans now that the course is over. “I get out in May, ” expressing his eagerness to drive over the road, “I wish it was sooner! [...] My dad owns two nice, nice fancy trucks.” They’re selling one and the other one would be used by the both of them as owner-operators doing team driving. “I’m really excited– I grew up with this,” saying that his dad has been in the trucking industry since James was very young. Since then, he said, “Drive [a] truck, that’s what I want to do.”
Once again, congratulations to James and we wish him well once he starts over the road with his family’s business!
