You may think that as a truck driver you’ll need to spend long days on the road. While some San Antonio truck driving jobs require overnight shifts and long-distance routes, not all of them do. Some trucking jobs allow you to make local deliveries and come back home every 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 top-of-the-line truck driving instruction with us!
How exactly do we make sure our truck drivers are well prepared for San Antonio truck driver jobs? By structuring our classes the following way:
- Classroom Instruction: Taking up one-quarter of our four-week truck driving course, the classroom portion teaches you everything you need to know about truck driving rules and regulations. This covers the written portion of the CDL exam.
- Behind-the-Wheel Training: Making sure you get plenty of hands on experience, our behind-the-wheel training takes up the majority of instruction time. Here is where you’ll practice driving on highways, streets, and roads as well as interstate routes. This is designed to prepare you for all driving scenarios when taking the truck driving portion of the exam.
San Antonio CDL Careers
160 Driving Academy can prepare aspiring truck drivers for the CDL test, or help 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 both your earning potential as well as your selection of jobs.
Earning your CDL License alone qualifies you for a $50,340* starting salary. Imagine what a trucking specialization can do for you! Some advantages of specialized truck driving jobs include:
- 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: Whether you want to land a job in HazMat or double/triple trailer trucking, 160 Driving Academy has the endorsement training that will open you up to a variety of jobs.
