Look up user 'Patrick Hesler'. He's an expat trucker here in the states. He'll help you out......hopefully

I misspelled his name. It's Patrick Hasler. He's not on often so give him a chance to reply.

Here's his profile page for you to send a PM from

But Pat moved here on the marriage visa.

I don't think there is a trucker visa for the US. There is a list of available visas in the Wiki, but I doubt that any one of them fits.

His question was about retesting for the US. I'm sure Patrick knows about transitioning from one country's trucking industry to another.

First things first...no use re-testing or even finding out about it if there is no chance of him living here. The OP should look here first:
