Freedom At Work to Perform/ No Boss Breathing Over Your Shoulders

Trucking gives you freedom at work as long as your performance is reliable. Life as a trucker requires you to be self reliant to a large extent. Of course if you stop making your pick ups and deliveries on time then you will start getting phone calls to see where you are at. This causes you to be a burden to a company instead of an asset which also means your dispensable.

Note: No matter what you do or where you work or even if you like it or not, it is always in your best interest to do it to the best of your ability.

You are pretty much given your bills when you leave from your pickup and you are told when to arrive at your destination. Some companies will give you the routing to take. Some of them don't. It's up to you to figure out how many hours you need to drive and at what time you drive. You do it how ever you see fit as long as you get to your destination on time and with in the legal guidelines.

Advantages of becoming a truck driver

CDL Training


The best route to your CDL depends on your situation.

If there is a community college near you, it may be your best choice.

However, there are many good private schools programs too. Some people will have no choice but attending trucking company training and many of those are good too. Some questions to ask...

  • How long will you have to drive for them to pay off the training?
  • What is the penalty for breaking contract? (If possible, don't break the contract.)
  • How many hours behind the wheel drive time
  • What expenses are you responsible for during training?
  • How much is pay after getting your CDL? Some pay is a set amount and some pay mileage. You just need to know what to expect.

    I just think it is important because most drivers assume they will be getting a regular trucker's salary. Often not true.
