Are you ready to get your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)? Trucking provides job security, good pay, good benefits, and great career opportunity. Trucking is a fast-growing industry. Eighty percent of all goods are moved by trucks, and the industry is looking to have a 21% increase by 2020. The median salary of a driver is about $67,000 annually and truck drivers often make more than some college graduates with only a fraction of the tuition and time spent in school.
Truck driving school and CDL programs usually take about 7 weeks, which is great news for anyone who wants a trucking career and doesn’t want to spend 4 years in school to get there.
