Commercial trucks are part of the American landscape. Drivers on the road probably don’t notice the difference in truck traffic. However for those paying attention, there are actually thousands of more trucks on the road today that there were even a year ago. That’s because the commercial truck industry is experiencing rapid growth.
There are large numbers of commercial truck driver jobs available today in almost every part of the country. But that doesn’t mean getting a job in this exploding industry is easy. Becoming a professional truck driver today takes the proper job training. With the right kind of CDL training a person can find themselves in a great long-term career as a commercial truck driver.
So, What Kind of Job Training is Required to Get Your CDL License?
The first step to becoming a professional commercial truck driver is getting the right license. A CDL is a Commercial Driver’s License and it’s required to operate a commercial truck, or a vehicle over 26,001 pounds, or a combination truck and trailer that weight or more.
However, having a Commercial Driver’s License is only the first step. The biggest and best carriers across the nation are looking for much more from the drivers they hire. Truck carriers want drivers that have solid history of driving experience. Or they want drivers who have recently completed a well-respected truck driver training program.
Responsible commercial carriers just can’t afford to risk putting a rookie driver into a truck hauling freight without proven driving experience or recent training at a CDL school they know and trust.
