Ryan Eshelman was always destined to be a truck driver.
His father became one when he was growing up to better provide for his family, and every so often, Ryan was able to ride with him. It seemed like the best thing in the world. Sitting up high, looking at all the buttons and gauges. It quickly became something he dreamed of doing when he grew up.
But, things didn't work out as he had planned, and Ryan ended up working a lawncare and landscape maintenance job. It got to the point where it just wasn't cutting it anymore, and he was ready for a real career that would help him provide for his wife and 2 stepsons.
So once he ran across Driver Solutions and found out that we offered a company-paid truck driving school option, he knew it was time to do what he always wanted.
Ryan came to our truck driving school in Indianapolis with 3 goals in mind:
- To follow in his father’s footsteps
- To provide a better life for his family
- To become a CDL ACE (pass test on first try)
