How To Get A Truck Driving Job
1. Complete high school or get your GED.
Some of the major trucking companies require a diploma, but almost every company prefers it.
2. Keep a clean driving record.
Parking tickets? Sure, OK. Speeding Tickets? No, not so much. For companies to trust you with their freight, they'll have to be confident that you can get it from Michigan to New York without incident.
3. Get your Commercial Driver's License.
Review the CDL Manual for requirements, but each state has its own rules. You'll need to verify with the Department of Motor Vehicles what those specific laws are in your state. The easiest way to do this is to attend a driving school. It won't be free, but it will make the process much easier.
