Getting Started with a Driving Career
A career in truck driving is very rewarding and lucrative, offering flexible hours and ample opportunities to see new places and meet people from all walks of life.
Getting started with a driving career isn’t difficult, but there are certain requirements which include:
- Holding a current driver’s license within the state you reside.
- Having a clean driving record.
- Obtaining a CLP (commercial learner’s permit). Depending on the truck driving school you attend, this may be required prior to sign-up. However, earning this is sometimes included in the driver training program.
- Completing a CDL program. This usually lasts between three to six weeks. Upon completion of the training, you’ll need to pass a knowledge exam based on your training, followed by a skills test that includes a road test.
- Obtaining your CDL.
While it is possible to acquire a CDL at the age of 18, driving across state lines is prohibited until you’re 21 years old. Also, it’s best to maintain a clean driving record, as hiring will involve a background check. Keep in mind, driving a large truck comes with increasingly more responsibility than a standard commuter vehicle.
