When you’re stuck in a job that just isn’t you, it’s easy to know you want to make a change, but it’s difficult to go from thinking about change to actually making one. Whether you’re looking for higher pay, guaranteed pay, potential for advancement, or a simple change of scenery, one career has it all -- truck driving!
With the industry growing, now is the perfect time to stop daydreaming about a fulfilling career and to go out and make it happen.
At 160 Driving Academy, we help you prepare for a rewarding, fast-paced, and lucrative new career with classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel training.
Why change careers to hit the open road?
Independence and Flexibility
If you want a new job that allows you to work independently, nothing is better than being a truck driver! While you’ll have a deadline and a responsibility to your company to fulfill requirements, by and large you get to set your own hours.
Once you’ve completed the 160 Driving Academy program, you're on the road to a career with a starting salary of at least $40,000. The median salary for truck drivers is $54,000 and the best part is you won’t begin your new job burdened with debt. In fact, most major commercial trucking companies pay 100% of your educational costs once you’ve passed your exam and obtain a CDL.
Once you’ve made the decision to change your career, you’ll be anxious to get started and at 160 Driving Academy. We make getting your CDL fast and convenient. Our program is 40 hours of classroom instruction and 120 hours of training behind the wheel, leaving you ready for a new career in just one month.
