With an expected growth rate of 21 percent between 2010 and 2020, the job outlook for truck drivers is favorable, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). For classification purposes, the BLS distinguishes between heavy, or tractor-trailer, truck drivers and light, or delivery services, truck drivers. For heavy truck drivers in Missouri, the median hourly wage is $18.35 as of May 2011 (latest available data). This equates to a median annual salary of $38,180. For light truck drivers in Missouri, the median hourly wage is $158.63 (median annual salary of $32,520). The first step to becoming one of the 56,000+ truck drivers in Missouri is to earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL) and a truck driving school in Missouri will prepare you to achieve this goal.

Truck driving schools in Missouri are found across the state with hotspots around Kansas City, St. Louis, and Springfield. Missouri truck driving schools offer the necessary education and training needed to gain your CDL license. To acquire a CDL license in Missouri, you must be at least 18 years old (21 for interstate truck drivers) and pass one or more written knowledge exams, depending on the class of license and specific endorsements you want to earn. After passing the knowledge test(s), CDL applicants must then take the three part skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic vehicle control test, and on-road driving exam. In addition, to transport hazardous materials (Hazmat), a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) background check is also required. A truck driving school in Missouri will prepare you to pass these examinations.
