Benefits of Removing the CDL Automatic Restriction from Your License

1. Increased Employability: By learning to operate both manual and automatic transmission trucks, drivers enhance their employability. They become eligible for a wider range of job opportunities since they can work with companies that use either type of transmission. This versatility makes them more attractive candidates to potential employers.

2. Enhanced Skill Set: Learning to drive a manual transmission truck requires more advanced skills compared to driving an automatic. Drivers who train in manual shifting develop greater coordination, precision, and understanding of vehicle mechanics. These skills not only make them proficient in operating manual trucks but also improve their overall driving abilities, making them safer and more competent drivers.

3. Adaptability: ┬áThere may be a job or company where you’ll drive both manual and automatic transmission trucks. If you have experience with both types of trucks, you can adapt quickly to different driving conditions and equipment. This adaptability makes CDL drivers more confident and capable, contributing to their success on the job.

4. Cost Savings: In some cases, manual transmission trucks may be less expensive to purchase and maintain than automatic trucks. By learning to drive manual transmission trucks, CDL drivers gain insight into vehicle maintenance and repair, which can help them save costs in the long run. Additionally, employers may value drivers who can operate manual transmission trucks for their potential cost-saving benefits.

5. Competitive Advantage: In a competitive job market, having skills in manual transmission shifting can give students a competitive edge over other applicants. Employers may prefer candidates who can operate both manual and automatic transmission trucks, as they offer more versatility and adaptability in various driving scenarios. This advantage can lead to better job opportunities and potentially higher wages for drivers with these skills.

Overall, attending a trucking school that teaches manual transmission shifting will equip you with valuable skills, enhance your employability, and provide you with a competitive edge in the trucking industry.
