CDL course is actually pretty easy. you will need to study the pretrip pretty hard though.
as for the phone books you will find the big trucks a quite friendly to vertically challenged people (I know cuz I am 6' with a 35" inseam and I am cramped in a lot of the cabs.
if you like driving you will love the big trucks. have fun in class

I Got my class A cdl through a school here in mass. Their was 15 guys in my group and only 4 of us passed on the first try and I was one. Just make sure that you really get you'r pre trip and air brakes down pat. After that it should all come to you. Good luck

Awesome. Good luck. And you shouldn't have to worry about the height thing. Most commercial trucks have pneumatic driver seats that will raise and lower.
