Sorry, but no. MOST employer's will want "verifiable" employment now days.

Market is flooded with out of work driver's.

go drive for someone else , get your feet wet , dont buy a truck unless you got alot of money saved up just incase ... trust me i thought of doing the same thing over a yr ago , then i really looked at the numbers and figured it would be best doing what i am already doing .

I think, as counting as experience behind the wheel, it should be verifed through employment. By the employer. It also must be in CDL required equipment.

Just my opinion. This is what I required in hiring Drivers.

im just going to haul containers from savanah. just wanna get rolling first. i know they say containers are the bottom of the barrel. but i just wanna get started first. ive been reading up on alot of d.o.d (department of defense)contracts and such and eventually will get into that. i have one friend who is paid by the 45 per hour with his truck. ive been going out with him lately. he gets 12 to 15 hours a day. one day we spent mabye a total of 3 hours in the truck and the rest was getting loaded and doing paper work. i think we did a total of 50 miles that day maybe and never loaded over 10000lbs. i would love to get my foot in the door there. he said the furthest he might go out is to fulton industrial from the airport. lucky sob!!!:p
