Truck Driving License
If you are ready for a career in the truck-driving industry, the first thing you must do is obtain your truck driving license. The process can vary depending upon which state/province you live in, but the main elements are very similar. For instance, you will need to meet the following conditions:
- A G-class driver’s license or higher: A general license is necessary in order to obtain a higher class license.
- A Clean Driver Record: If you have certain violations, such as a DUI, or too many speeding tickets, it may be difficult to obtain your truck driving license. It may also prove difficult to get a job, as many companies may be apprehensive about hiring you.
- Age of Majority: You must have reached the age of majority in order to obtain a truck driving license, which in most states/provinces is 18.
- Medical Test: Potential employers will need to know that you are healthy enough to drive a transport truck safely. This means passing a physical, and getting a clean bill of health from a qualified health care provider.
- Training: Last but certainly not least, you need adequate training. Driving a transport truck with attached trailer is very different from driving a car, pick-up or motorcycle. It’s important to choose the right company that will teach you everything you need to know in order to operate a truck safely and effectively.
The truck driving industry is booming, and it’s a great way to see the country, while getting paid for it! There is great demand all across North America for qualified drivers. You can choose to transport any number of materials, and work with a company of your choosing.
