For most driving jobs companies require at least a high school diploma or equivalent. Many prospective drivers attend a professional truck driving school or community college program to learn how to maneuver large vehicles on highways or through crowded streets. These programs usually lasts 3 to 6 months.

After completion of the program, drivers usually have continued on-the-job training for several weeks. This involves driving with a more experienced mentor-driver in the passenger seat.

Applicants must have a commercial driver’s license (CDL). Qualifications for obtaining a CDL may vary from state to state but generally include passing a knowledge test and a driving test.

Drivers can get endorsements to their CDL to show their ability to drive specialized vehicles. Endorsements are required for transporting hazardous materials. Getting an endorsement requires passing a knowledge test and a background check.

The median annual wage for heavy and tractor-trailer drivers is $42,480. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $27,510 and the highest 10 percent earned more than $64,000.
