Becoming a professional truck driver is relatively simple. Different states have different requirements. Usually, all you need to become a truck driver is a commercial driver’s license (CDL).
To obtain one of those, you first need a regular driver’s license. You then need to pass the CDL exam at your local DMV. The best way to prepare for that exam is to enroll in a truck driving training program, which will also award you a certificate showing that you have undergone training and know the basics of the trade. Truck driving training usually lasts only a couple of months.
Once you have your certificate and your CDL, the next step is to find work. However, getting hired as an inexperienced driver is often hard, which is why many new truck drivers choose to work a couple of years as apprentices in order to build their resume.
