Why choose a career in commercial truck driving?

Great pay and benefits
Employment of heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers is projected to grow 4 percent from 2021 to 2031, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

About 259,900 openings for heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

Job security
A shortage of qualified, dependable commercial truck drivers equals long-term job security.

A Fast Track to Employment
Unlike other professions that require years of training, commercial truck drivers start working and earning money in a matter of weeks.

Scheduling flexibility
Many companies give you the choice of hauls you prefer. Once you’re on the road, you can decide how far you drive, when you eat, when you sleep and when you take breaks.

Travel opportunities
Forget being tied to a desk or stuck in an office. There’s no better career option for someone who wants to hit the open road and see the country.
