Truck Driving Schools in Texas (TX)

The job outlook for truck drivers over the next decade is favorable and expected to increase 9 percent between 2010 and 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). 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). For heavy truck drivers in Texas, the median hourly wage is $17.89 as of May 2011 (latest available data). This equates to a median annual salary of $37,220. For light truck drivers in Texas, the median hourly wage is $15.30 (median annual salary of $31,820). To become one of the 197,500+ truck drivers in Texas, you may need a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and a truck driving school in Texas is a great place to start.

Truck driving schools in Texas are located throughout the state with hotspots in San Antonio, Fort Worth, Dallas, and Houston. Texas truck driving schools will provide you with the training needed to obtain your CDL. To obtain a CDL license in Texas, applicants must be at least 18 years old (21 years old for interstate driving) and possess a valid medical certificate in accordance with Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Additionally, CDL applicants must pass both a written knowledge test and a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection test, a basic vehicle control test, and an on-road driving test. 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.
