Truck Driving Schools in Maryland (MD)

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). The BLS classifies truck drivers into two basic categories: heavy / tractor-trailer truck drivers and light / delivery services truck drivers. As of May 2011 (latest available data), Maryland heavy truck drivers earn a median wage of $19.98 per hour. This equates to earning a salary of $41,560 per year. Maryland light truck drivers earn a median wage of $17.95 per hour (salary of $37,330 per year). The first step to becoming one of the 39,900+ truck drivers in Maryland is to earn your commercial driver's license (CDL) and a truck driving school in Maryland will prepare you to achieve this goal.

Truck driving schools in Maryland concentrate around the hubs of Baltimore and Washington, DC as well as in Silver Spring and Jessup. Maryland truck driving schools will help you learn the skills necessary to earn a CDL. To obtain your CDL, you must be at least 18 years old (21 years old to haul across state lines), have a valid driver's license and pass a medical and vision examination. CDL applicants must then pass a written 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 school bus, a tanker truck, a truck with air brakes or to transport passengers. A truck driving school in Maryland will prepare you to pass these examinations.
