Truck driving may be a great career choice for you. There are many benefits to becoming a truck driver. With the shortage of truck drivers, Class A CDL licensed drivers are making more money than ever before in addition to the great benefits that they are receiving.
1. The pay is above average
Class A CDL drivers are making an average of $45,000 per year, which is well
above the average factory worker. This is due in part to the shortage of drivers that are available. Qualified drivers are earning more every year.
2. The benefits can help you and your family
Many trucking companies will give you benefits such as dental, medical, paid
time off and a 401k. These benefits can help you stay safe and healthy, while also enjoying your time off with your family.
3. Get paid to travel the country
Being a truck driver means you are getting paid to drive. Imagine all the things
that you could see while you were driving. If you are driving a load from New
York to Texas, you would be driving through so many different states and seeing so many cultures and landscapes.
4. Meet new people from all over the country
Traveling across the country and stopping at different rest-stops, along the way,
means you will have the opportunity to meet new people. It can be a great
opportunity to make connections and network. Another opportunity to meet people will come when you get to your final destination and drop off your load.
There are many benefits to becoming a truck driver and the benefits are only increasing. As less people are becoming truck drivers, the benefits continue to increase in order to attract them. Qualified drivers can earn well above the average and get the opportunity to travel.
