Are you concerned that as a truck driver you’ll need to spend long days on the road? A lot of aspiring truck drivers are. You may be surprised to find out that not all Raleigh truck driving jobs require overnight shifts or long-distance routes. Many trucking jobs allow you to return home the same night.
There are several opportunities available to Commercial Driver's License (CDL) holders. At 160 Driving Academy, we prepare you for all of them. Rest assured you’ll be getting exceptional trucking instruction when taking classes with us!
We prepare our students for Raleigh truck driver jobs in the following ways:
- Classroom Instruction: Taking up one week of our four-week truck driving course, the classroom portion teaches you everything you need to know about truck driving rules and regulations. This prepared you for the written portion of the CDL exam.
- Behind-the-Wheel Training: We make sure you get plenty of behind-the-wheel training to make sure you’re prepared to pass the truck driving portion of the exam — three weeks to be exact. Here is where you’ll be practicing on highways, streets, roads, and interstate routes.
Raleigh CDL Careers
We help both aspiring truck drivers begin their truck driving careers as well as existing truck drivers earn new endorsements. An endorsement is earned by passing a written test in a specific trucking category, such as HazMat (Hazardous Materials). Endorsements increase your selection of jobs as well as your earning potential.
When you decide to earn your CDL license, you qualify for a starting salary upwards of $50,340*. Imagine what a specialized endorsement can do for your earning potential.
Some advantages to a specialized CDL career are:
- Higher Salaries: Depending on the type of endorsement you go for, some specialized CDL careers have earning potential of up to $100,000/year!
- Wider Selection of Jobs: We have endorsement training in a variety of specialties, including HazMat and double/triple trailer trucking. This opens you up to a much wider range of opportunities than regular trucking.
- Travel Opportunities: With greater knowledge of the industry comes more opportunities for travel. Truck drivers with specialized CDL careers are able to travel all across the country.
