Having said that..... First you really want to get an understanding of what youre getting into before you decide to become a truck driver.

Expect to be over the road for a couple of weeks at a time at most companies when starting your trucking career.

Then depending on where you live, you MIGHT find a local trucking job that will get your home each day. These might be local deliveries or route jobs.

You also need to know that many local truck driving jobs pay less that the average trucking jobs and pay might be why you're considering becoming a trucker. So just be aware of that expected pay.
