I passed both the written and driving exams (at my own expense) in Texas. So yes, I have a TX CDL, but all I have in my possession is the temporary certificate they issue at the local DPS. The actual license is sent from Austin to the address on the license. That is what I do not have, and cannot figure out a way to get short of driving back to Texas, which as of today would be illegal because the temp license certificate expires today.
No I have not because honestly, I did not think it would go this far. And enlisting the AG's office will only make this process lengthier. I need income and I need to be able to buy the truck. I am losing income every day because they won't send my license to me. Going to the AG, while it may EVENTUALLY resolve the matter, won't give any immediate relief.
Depends on how much.
So, do I just contact an attorney who practices in the county where the truck driving school is located?
