Truck Driving Schools in Georgia (GA)

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 according to the type of vehicle they drive: heavy versus light trucks. Heavy truck drivers or tractor-trailer drivers typically transport cargo farther distances (long-haul trucking). Light truck drivers usually do more local deliveries (also known as pick-up and delivery drivers). As of May 2011 (latest available data), heavy truck drivers in Georgia earn a median hourly wage of $18.73 (median annual salary of $38,960). Light truck drivers in Georgia earn a median hourly wage of $15.55 (median annual salary of $32,340). To become a truck driver in Georgia , a truck driving school may get you started on the path to join them.

Truck driving schools in Georgia may be found throughout the state with hotspots in Atlanta and in cities like Tunnel Hill in the north and Louisville in the southeast. Georgia truck driving schools help you prepare for the commercial driver's license (CDL) tests and start your career in commercial truck driving. To obtain your CDL, you must be 18 years old (21 years old to haul interstate), possess a valid driver's license, and be physically capable to operate a commercial motor vehicle. Applicants must also pass both a general knowledge exam and a driving test which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic vehicle control test and an on-road driving exam. In addition to a general knowledge exam, you may have to take additional knowledge and skills tests depending on the class of license and endorsements you need--for example, to transport hazardous materials. Georgia truck driving schools will prepare you to pass these examinations.
