NEW TO TRUCKING

Obtaining your CDL is a great investment. The trucking industry is very strong right now and we are looking for skilled drivers. There is great job stability as a professional truck driver. While we don't operate a CDL school, we  can mentor you through the process from finding a school through getting hired on with TMC. We also offer tuition reimbursement.

About the Industry

The trucking industry is a 255 billion dollar industry and professional drivers are essential to the U.S. economy. They have the important job of delivering the food we eat, clothes we wear and materials that build our houses.

It is relatively easy to start your career as a professional truck driver. Getting your CDL takes 4 to 6 weeks and costs anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000. That may seem like a lot upfront, but what other career do you know of where you can learn a new skill and make a great paycheck in less than three months? First year truck drivers can make between $42,000 and $60,000 with full benefits.

One of the best things about trucking is getting out on the open road and seeing the United States. Let us help you navigate your way to a new career in truck driving! Call today 800-247-2862, Ext 2.
