    Sounds like the cart before the horse. He has the means to deliver Fed Ex Freight, but not the authorization. Makes me wonder what kind of small business plan he is working off of? Assuming he has a plan. I wonder what kind of projections for income versus costs? Business taxes, personal taxes (16% of every dollar in wages for social security alone), state income tax, county tax, license fees for the truck, business insurance, medical coverage for an owner operator. And 2 to 4 months operating expense funds set aside to run his start up business. Does he service his equipment himself? Or send it out. I wish him luck. He is going to need a plan showing possible income versus expense before he can get a loan from a bank. And trust me, he will need a bank loan. Now or down the road, all businessman need to rely on the ability to borrow money to grow or survive. And buying the truck before having a source to pay for it is well, like buying a water pump before knowing what car to install it on. Brian I really hope you make it. Do your home work before the test. It will make a difference.Von.

    Driver of cargo van or smaller vehicle leased on with FedEx Custom Critical must have an unrestricted commercial class C (or higher) driver's license (CDL) along with a hazardous materials endorsement.

    Learner's permits or restricted licenses are not acceptable for drivers of FedEx Custom Critical leased vehicles.

    Canadian contractors: please ensure your class G CDL is rated for a GVW greater than the GVW of your vehicle.

    C. CRIMINAL BACKGROUND
    Felony – no less than 7 years from the date of clearance. (Clearance would be the completion of probation, parole, incarceration or court-ordered diversion program relating to felony.)
    DUI/DWI – no less than 5 years
    Misdemeanor – no less than 3 years
