Truck Driving Schools in Arizona (AZ)

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) 2011 Data, the job outlook for truck drivers over the next decade (between 2010 and 2020) is favorable. The BLS classifies truck drivers into two basic categories: heavy / tractor-trailer truck drivers and light or delivery services truck drivers. For heavy truck drivers in Arizona, the median hourly wage is $20.32 as of May 2011 (latest available data). This equates to a median annual salary of $42,260. For light truck drivers in Arizona, the median hourly wage is $16.95 (median annual salary of $35,250). To become a truck driver in Arizona, you must first pursue your commercial driver's license (CDL) and a truck driving school in Arizona is a great place to start.

Truck driving schools in Arizona are located in Phoenix, but you could also study in Albuquerque, Scottsdale, Tucson or at one of the many Arizona truck driving schools located across the State. To earn a CDL license all candidates must be at least 18 years old (21 years old for interstate hauling) and pass a general knowledge exam. Depending on the class of license and endorsements you need, other knowledge and skills tests may be required--for example, to drive a combination vehicle, a school bus, a tanker truck, a truck with air brakes or to transport passengers. CDL license candidates must then pass a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic vehicle control skills test, and an on-road driving exam. A truck driving school in Arizona will prepare you to pass these examinations.
