California Truck Driving Schools

As one of the biggest states in the US, California has a lot of job opportunities in many sectors. The transportation industry is one of them - with over 140 truck driving training schools. With older drivers retiring, the demand for truck drivers is pretty high with over 5000 jobs open to aspiring applicants. The median salary is $40,000 and experienced drivers can make $60,000 or more based on skill and experience. There are truck driving schools within easy reach of most aspiring students and tuition is affordable.

Criteria to start driving:

Drivers have to be at least 18 years old to be eligible for a CDL license. It is recommended that candidates attend training at truck driving schools - it will help them with the written and driving tests. Students learn about maintaining vehicles, meeting inspection requirements, how to transport cargo safely and other areas. CDL licenses are classified into 3 categories - A, B and C based on vehicle weight and type of cargo that will be transported. The length of time it takes to qualify for any class of license depends on factors like passing both the written and driving tests, experience, issues with driving record, etc.

What to expect:

If a candidate is already working for a moving company, then they can get the right one for their job. Courses at most truck driving schools cost $1300 on average. Scholarships are also available to those in need, about 50% of the course fees. Expect to spend 4 - 8 weeks getting trained.

Federal Requirements:

Under new federal regulations, those transporting hazardous materials on the job have to undergo a background check and also get fingerprinted. This is to protect regular citizens from potential terrorist threats. If you get disqualified, there is an appeals process. Some reasons for disqualification could be crimes related to murder, arson, robbery, kidnapping and others.
