New Mexico trucking companies needs drivers now. Find your fit in the Land of Enchantment. It is the 3rd highest producer of oil and gas which means plenty of oil field work. There many distribution companies in New Mexico, most are in or near Albuquerque which is near the center of the state where 2 major highways (i-40 and i-25) intersect. With little with large deserts, and mountain terrains you might think there is little else going on in New Mexico but there is plenty more freight to haul....

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.
