With Great CDL Jobs Growing Fast, Truck Driving Schools and Training Now in High Demand
There are tens of thousands of truck driving jobs open nationwide, so the demand for qualified truck drivers has never been greater! These jobs show a strong, consistent growth pattern with no end in sight. The Department of Labor has projected these jobs to grow faster than the average occupation until at least the year 2022. For truck driving school graduates, this has meant job security, diverse employment opportunities, great benefits, retirement plans and excellent pay.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the average annual compensation in 2012 for a big-rig driver was $38,200, which is over $18 an hour, working a 40-hour week. These are the latest statistics available, but since 2012, we think the salary has gone up, based on the shortage of CDL drivers qualified to fill all the open jobs. That was just the average pay, with experienced truck drivers being paid much more – as much as $58,000 per year.1
No wonder truck driving training has gained in popularity, with hundreds of professional drivers graduating from our school every year.
