Truck drivers transport almost three-fourths of the country’s freight, and 80 percent of communities depend…
One of the attractions of truck driving for those who are single and free to roam is that they can get paid for doing just that. There are not that many jobs that pay you to see the nation. That’s the potential of truck driving, especially those who can handle long distance truck driving. If you don’t have a set central base, you can effectively take loads that enable you to see everywhere.
Coast-to-coast truck driving is the norm for many as is south to north, including into Canada (or reverse, north to south and into Mexico). Truck driving is also a little like the hospitality industry – drivers follow the work, often jumping from state to state to look for new challenges. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of work for local drivers. There is. However, the shortage of good truck drivers means that businesses are often recruiting from outside the local area – more so for remote areas.
Whether you are looking for local work as a truck driver, intrastate work or long distance work, truck driving has opportunities everywhere. The training is almost the same for all drivers and it includes the acquisition of a commercial drivers license.
If you’re single and free to see the country, consider truck driving. You can start by driving long distance, earning good money, and perhaps even saying heaps. Once you are ready to settle down, you can take a closer look at local or near local driver job opportunities. We can help you gain your commercial drivers license, and we can work with you to gain that first job. If you want to see the nation (and perhaps even the world), then consider truck driving as a career. Your skills and license will be recognized right around the country.
