Anyone here who has a CDL A license? Do you have any input about any of the schools providing training in the area?

Is it better to go through a school(NVCC or LFCC) or there are some other training options out there? Any other additional help and suggestions?

Thanks for any of the input or help.

All I can add is if you want to drive for a carrier, find a carrier who offers sponsorship / reimbursement of the CLD Course and let them foot the bill. If you want to be a ONO (owner operator), then its better to go through a school.

No matter what S-Corp or LLC yourself ($700). Beyond the tax benefits and write-offs of 1099'ing yourself or running legitimate expenses through the corp, ambulance chasers salivate over commercial vehicle accidents w/passenger vehicles because of the substantial policies Commercial Drivers must carry; god forbid you have an accident with an LLC envelope, no one can sue you personally or attack your personal assets for civil compensation.
