What happens if I leave a trucking company before my contract expires?

Hypothetical question: If a company sends me to school for my CDL, I pass, and am under contract (such as 1 year, 2 year, 3 year etc), what will happen if someone would leave before their contract expires? I ve heard the rules have changed, and companies like C.R England claim they can hold your school certificate, AND put a lock on your license so you can t drive. Please do not answer this unless you know for sure. Also, IF I pay up the amount owed for my school tuition, can they do anything then? Please advise. Thank you.

    What does your contract say?

    Your contract will tell you and yes you and your qualifications belong to them for the 1 yr, so if you leave then as a starting point you need to find out directly what options you have/they give you

    You need to read the contract *before* you sign it. There is a good bet they will want you to pay them back for the cost of the course.

    Also, you can bet you will not fnd work after burning a big company like that.
