For classification purposes, the BLS distinguishes between heavy, or tractor-trailer, truck drivers and light, or delivery services, truck drivers. As of May 2011 (latest available data), Virginia heavy truck drivers earn a median wage of $17.81 per hour. This equates to earning a salary of $37,050 per year. Virginia light truck drivers earn a median wage of $16.45 per hour (salary of $34,220 per year). The first step to becoming one of the 59,000+ truck drivers in Virginia is to earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL) and a truck driving school in Virginia will prepare you to achieve this goal.

Truck driving schools in Virginia are located throughout the state with hotspots in Virginia Beach, Roanoke, Manassas, Portsmouth, and Wytheville. Virginia truck driving schools may provide you with the training needed to obtain your CDL. Obtaining a CDL license in Virginia, applicants must be at least 18 years old and satisfy all requirements for a regular Virginia driver's license. To drive a commercial vehicle across state lines, transport hazardous materials, or haul a freight within the state, you must be at least 21 years old. CDL applicants must then pass a written knowledge exam and a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic 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 tanker truck or a truck with air brakes. Additional qualifications are also needed to transport passengers or to haul hazardous materials.
