Truck driving schools in the United States are where aspiring truck drivers start their professional career. Considering the sheer number of these institutions and the variety of courses on offer, how easy is it to choose the right one?
If statistics are any indication, there is currently a shortfall of 80,000 truck drivers, resulting in thousands of trucks standing idle. Why? Because many truck driving school graduates will not be given the keys to company’s trucks. Even the most desperate to get the freight moving employers, will not entrust their expensive machines to just anyone with a CDL certificate.
Not to mention the public safety issues at stake here.
Just like in life in general, not all diplomas are made equal. The truck driving industry long recognizes that there are good and bad schools. And if you happen to carry the right CDL, the driver’s seat of a shiny new rig, is waiting for you.
If not, you will have to start again. A question arises, how do you pick the best school there is? Mark Jameson from Insider Net has the answer for you: “Find all the schools you can. Do your search on and offline. Call them, ask questions.”
It seems to be a daunting task, to find and compare hundreds of truck driving schools in your state. Mark Jameson again: “The biggest danger is to judge a school on its position on the search engines’ results pages. Often, the best schools are buried thousands of positions down. Yet some of the most questionable operators occupy the first page.”
If you would rather rely on your phone book and local directories listings beware, long and frustrating phone calls are unavoidable. Having access to one comprehensive resource would certainly assist in making an educated choice; with substantial time savings as a bonus.
