    it is true. i have it here in this thread for the fact of what happened. there was 8 federal agencies that went through the swift driving school and about 25 000 drivers no longer have their cdls or their regular license.

    swift really screwed things up and now i am out of work untill i can get things straitened out. wtf. there are just some times i hate being me.

    yes swift transportaion. their memphis and millington tn driving schools was raided by 8 different federal agencies. all the drivers who had went there from 2000 to 2007 has lost their license. it has been suspended. we now have to get them renewed or just let them be lost. i will have to take the written test the road test and the skills test. the skills test is strait line backing, off set backing and parallel parking. all with the trl attached.

    Okay, now your frantic phone call makes sense. :biggrin1: I had heard this might happen on the trucker forum a few weeks ago but didn't believe they would go through with it. I also forgot that's where you got your CDL. :redface: So how long are you stuck at the terminal in WI for? Will your current employer help you to get re-instated? Do you have to pay to take the test again? Cause this is NOT your fault.

    It's bullshit for someone who has over half a million miles to have to get retested again.
