Who Are We?

CDL Drivers and Friends is a free membership/patron grassroots advocacy platform for issues concerning the Law, Regulatory, Technological, and Management Policy facing all CDL drivers and small carriers.

CDL Drivers and Friends was created by CDL Drivers Unlimited, Inc., America’s only Professional CDL Driver’s Alliance, to welcome all drivers and friends of road transportation in a private community of informed activism.  CDL Drivers Unlimited Inc. serves all CDL Drivers and small carriers.

What We Do 

Together the advocacy platform and the alliance of drivers provide an “Organized Voice” with research, summary reports, and drafted common-sense solutions. We align them with the proven tactics to execute successful issue or policy campaigns in the best interests of Professional CDL Drivers.

All drivers and their friends can join the Private Drivers and Friends Community to become knowledgeable and offer input on all issues and policies presented.  If a member finds agreement with the majority solutions, they can “Take Action” to join the campaign by following the simple “SEND NOW” step to let their voice be heard and counted.


Why We Do It
As our Country is being systematically divided between Elites, Big Business and Globalists at the expense of the Hard-Working Common Folk.  We, at CDL Drivers Unlimited, Inc., believe it is time to become like the “Wide Awakes” of 1860 rather than the “woke” culture of today.  Understand, Teach, Support and Nurture are the ways to move the pendulum back into the proper path shown by our founding fathers.  Freedom is never free and easily lost when not cherished.
