CDL Driver Jobs

CDL Driver Overview


A CDL Driver is responsible for the safe operation of a commercial vehicle. CDL stands for commercial driver's license, or the license to drive and operate a variety of vehicles from tractor trailers to dump trucks, school buses and other large passenger vehicles. A CDL Driver is tasked with the safe delivery of their cargo or passengers as well as ensuring that all cargo is unloaded.

CDL Driver Educational Requirements


A high school diploma or GED is required to obtain the needed driver's license. Beyond passing the commercial driver's exam, no degree or extensive training is required for the job. A CDL Driver must be able to stay awake for long periods at a time, even over monotonous roadways, and remain focused on the safe operation of the vehicle when there are distractions.

CDL Driver Job Market


Commercial Driver's License Driver jobs are spread across several different classifications, but the overall demand for drivers is high. There are currently 464,700 job openings for heavy truck drivers in the United States, and the number of employed drivers is expected to grow 11 percent by 2022. For bus drivers, there are 129,900 job openings with a projected growth of 9 percent by 2022. As the population grows and more schools appear, the number of drivers is expected to increase. Similar positions include Regional Truck Driver jobs and Delivery Driver jobs.

CDL Driver Salary


Depending upon the role a CDL Driver plays, their salary can range from low to very high. Cross-country delivery drivers can make a lot of money, up to $60,000 per year, as the job requires them be away from home for long periods at a time. More regional drivers can expect to see around $16 an hour. The variety of jobs available to CDL Drivers makes it difficult to pinpoint an exact median wage. Salaries are largely dependent upon the kind of vehicle one drives as well as the region and company they work for.
