Idaho Trucking

Trucking in Idaho is almost therapeutic at times, depending on where you are and as long as you are following the traffic laws, lol. Really, places like hwy 26 thru the Snake River Canyon will stick in your mind for a week.

Snake River Canyon is whee Evil Knievel failed that jump in 1974. Truckers driving in Idaho during the winter need to know how to drive in snow and on the mountains. You also need to be aware of the chain laws there during certain times of the year.  They got me on that.  Cost me $400 and 2 hours.  There was no snow.

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.
