Truck Driver Overview


There's more to Truck Driver jobs than driving tractor trailers all over North America and being away from home for weeks at a time. While this is one version of the job, other Truck Drivers have regular delivery jobs driving smaller trucks, allowing them to come home every evening. Others drive a regional route that only requires on-the-road travel every few days. Truck Drivers are responsible for picking up cargo, loading it into their truck, driving it to its next destination and then unloading it. The position requires drivers to spend long hours behind the wheel, navigating often congested roadways in order to make deliveries on schedule. Depending on the type of job you choose, the hours can be flexible, although Truck Drivers rarely work a fixed schedule.

Truck Driver Education Requirements


A high school diploma is the basic requirement for Truck Driver jobs. You will need basic reading and math skills to fill out logs, complete bills of lading, calculate truck weights and manage driving schedules. Because you'll be delivering goods to a large geographic area, a valid driver's license is also a necessity. Depending on the weight of the truck and cargo you'll be driving, you may need to obtain a commercial driver's license, which will require additional vocational training. You may not be required to have previous experience, but people skills and customer service skills are extremely useful for Truck Drivers because you'll be representing your employer to clients as you complete deliveries.

Truck Driver Job Market


Because statistics lumps data for Truck Drivers together with sales and delivery workers, it's difficult to estimate how open the job market is for new positions. Looking at the extended job field, statistics estimate that more than a million people are employed in delivery and sales, and opportunities exist in all regions. A similar position would be a Motor Vehicle Operator Job.

Truck Driver Salary


The median salary for Truck Driving jobs in the U.S. is $27,530. Over-the-road and regional Truck Drivers are generally paid per mile driven while local delivery drivers are usually paid on a salary or hourly.
