CDL Jobs - Many people consider getting a job as a truck driver. It's been known to make some decent money and for those who love driving, it's perfect. But what all does it take to get a CDL job and what's all involved in the business? Read on to find out.

What is CDL? This term is thrown around quite a bit when talking about truck driving. So what does it mean? CDL stands for Commercial Driver's License. Drivers are required to obtain a CDL in order to drive any commercial motor vehicle (CMV). Because there are many different types of trucks, there are several different classes for licenses. In order to begin CDL truck driving, going to a truck driving school is a necessity. A high school diploma or a GED is needed before you apply. It's not legally required but the majority of truck driving schools and trucking companies will not accept anyone without those. Truck driving school can last from 3 to 6 weeks with around 40 hours per week of instruction. To help prepare, there is a free online CDL training course.

CDL, CHECK. NOW WHAT? Once a license is obtained, the next step is to find CDL jobs. How does one go about doing that? First off, begin applying for trucking jobs as soon as the completion date of the trucking school is known. And apply to as many companies as possible. Choices can be narrowed down once the offers start rolling in. Jobs can be found by searching online for trucking companies or finding out through the trucking school.

QUALIFICATIONS - Truck driving companies want a driver with a clean driving record. An individual with a felony involving a motor vehicle will not be accepted. A poor driving record will be a problem, after all, this career is all about being on the road. If there are any gaps in employment history or there is not solid work history, that could also stop someone from getting a job. All companies have different requirements so be sure to check with the recruiter at each company to see what is not accepted.

BENEFITS - Like most people going after a new job, salary is on the forefront of a person's mind and knowing just how many benefits there will be. Starting out as a truck driver, it's possible to make $30,000- $35,000 a year. Not too shabby. And that's just the first year. By the second year, it could go upwards of $40,000. Truck drivers do collect benefits. Their package usually includes health and life insurance, vacation pay, and 401k retirement plans. Not too bad for being on the road most of the time. And speaking of…

PERKS OF CDL TRUCK DRIVING - The job description is in the title: Driving. There is going to be a lot of it. Besides the good pay and benefits, there are a few other bonuses; one being flexibility. Truck drivers can usually decide what kind of haul they want to drive. And they can choose how far of a distance they want to go. Many truck drivers love the travel because of all the different scenery along the road. Instead of being stuck in an office all day, they visit many places that they might have never seen otherwise. There are plenty of opportunities for growth in the truck driving business. And because of that, job security is a peace of mind for many.
