February 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 200

You may be just beginning your career, or you may be ready to make a change and find something better than what you've been doing. In either case, the opportunity to become a truck driver could be exactly what you're looking for. Within three weeks, you could be on the open road, pulling down an excellent salary and enjoying great job security.

In order to begin your new career, you'll need to be trained for your Commercial Driver's License (CDL). This training will consist of both classroom instruction and time behind the wheel. In the classroom, you'll learn skills such as logging, map reading, accident prevention, and the handling of hazardous materials. On the training range and on the road, you'll learn the techniques needed to drive a big rig, such as backing and turning, shifting and defensive driving maneuvers.

There are a few requirements you must meet if you want to become a truck driver. You must be at least 22 years old, with a valid driver's license. You must have no alcohol-related offenses in the last five years, and no more than one in your lifetime. You must reside in the United States and be able to pass the DOT physical and drug screen.

If you can meet these qualifications, apply with a reputable company that will help you become a truck driver by sponsoring your training and offering you a job upon the successful completion of the three-week course. With a severe shortage of drivers in the U.S., there has never been a better time to become a truck driver.

As you are probably well aware by now, there are jobs and there are careers. Careers offer good pay, job security and satisfying work. They also require a specialized set of skills. Careers in trucking offer those benefits, but they also require specialized training. If you want a career and not just a job, start training for your Commercial Driver's License.

Careers in trucking begin with a solid education. In the classroom, you'll learn everything from the basics of logging information and reading maps to handling hazardous materials. On the road, you'll learn how to back and turn a big rig. Both types of training will teach you accident prevention and defensive driving.

There is a shortage of truck drivers today, and the demand is greater than ever. That means that careers in trucking are paying better than ever before. Even new drivers can make up to $50,000! And when you have your training sponsored by one of our partners, you won't spend your first year's income paying off your debts. Fill out an application, select a sponsor, and begin your training.
