CAREER RESOURCES

What can I do with a CDL?

Determining if driving a truck is your dream job isn’t easy. There is no on-the-job training and unfortunately, you aren’t born with the know-how to be a professional truck driver. You have to get some training to become a truck driver.

There are some qualities that many drivers in long-haul trucking share, though. First of all, they share a sense of adventure. They love to go through new places and see the sights. They don’t mind waking up in a different place every day, and they don’t mind being away from home for days or even weeks at a time. Most professionals begin their career in over-the-road trucking.
