Learning to become a truck driver is only a little harder than learning to drive a standard car. The rules and regulations are a lot broader, and a big rig can be tricky to maneuver. However, if you have ever reversed a car and trailer successfully, then you’ve probably got the basic skills set in place – if you haven’t, then you’re in for some fun.
You can go from complete novice to work ready as a truck driver in as little as five weeks through ATS Heavy Equipment Operator Schools. We will take you through all the rules and regulations in preparation for your theoretical tests that are required to attain a truck drivers permit. This permit allows students to drive trucks on open roads with a suitably licensed truck driver alongside them.
Once a student has completed their training, we will help them attain their commercial truck drivers license (CDL) and any endorsements required for their career path. With a CDL in hand, they are ready to commence work in their new profession. Although driving big rigs may appear daunting, once you have gained the skills and had some practice, you’ll be surprised at how easy they are drive. This is why women are increasingly turning to truck driving.
