Includes Truck Driver Training Scams Dishonesty and Misrepresentation. Updated frequently to bring you the latest information and news on Truck Driver Training, Hiring and Truck Lease-Purchase Scams/Ripoffs as reported by the victims.
Deceptive, Misleading Statements made by Trucking Company Recruiter's (professional sales people) designed to entice New (un-aware) Truck Drivers into signing loan documents for Truck Driver Training costs which are several times the reasonable amount for legitimate truck driver training such as found at Community Colleges.
They paint a pretty picture. The world is promised to you. Unscrupulous trucking companies and training schools run drivers through like cattle. This is called the "CDL Mill Scam". They prey upon those with poor credit and encourage co-signors. Those with Military educational benefits or Pell grants are especially at risk.
Drivers are then forced to quit after a short period of time. Their miles are cut or they are fired for the slightest infraction in order to make power units (trucks) available to new students. These dastardly actions keep the scam volume high.
These programs are designed to screw the unsuspecting new truck driver. At $4.00 per Gallon for diesel, it costs approximately $1.35 per mile in total expenses to run a semi-truck. Keep this figure in mind before signing any owner/operator truck-leasing-purchase-agreement.
Since most drivers are paid by the mile and NOT by the hour speed governors limit the total miles you can travel within your mandated driving hours. Truck Speed Limiters also cause undue stress and fatigue. Speed Limiters make drivers want to quit. Speed Limiters only benefit the trucking company's bottom line profits while endangering the truck driver and the motoring public.
Look for truck driver training schools that have some form of accreditation, such as Community Colleges. Never Take the word of trucking company recruiters. Do your Homework and calculate your expenses carefully before making any financial commitments. "Never Expect What You Don't Inspect First"
