Truck Driver Shortage is Growing, Jobs are Available

Currently, there is a truck driver shortage of approximately 20,000 drivers per year. This number is expected to increase to 111,000 drivers per year by 2014.

The shortage is not due to a lack of interest, just basic economics – the demand for professional truck drivers is growing faster than the number of new drivers entering the field. The industry is desperate for new drivers.

If you received your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) today, it’s almost certain there would be a job available to you tomorrow.

To help solve the growing shortage of drivers, the American Trucking Associations has developed a web site www.GetTrucking.com to help people interested in a career as a driver find out how to go about it. The website has the most up to date information on the trucking industry and can answer all of your questions about life in trucking. The industry is looking for both men and women of all ages who want to experience the open road.

Since 1973, Truck Driver Institute has offered professional CDL training schools that have a reputation for graduating safe CDL drivers, and many employers recruit directly from us for that reason. Earning potential is a major consideration  for commercial truck drivers. In the first year of a CDL driver job the average driver will make approximately $40,000. Many trucking drivers also get bonuses for safety records, distances traveled, and more.
