COMMERCIAL DRIVERS LEARNING CENTER

At CDLC, we are not "married" to any company.  You are a "free-agent" with the freedom to decide what job is best for you and your family.  We want to make sure that you know all of the job opportunities that are available to you.  Below is a description of the types of the jobs that are available and some of the companies that have hired some of our graduates.


There are three types of jobs available for truck drivers:

  • Long- haul
    • These jobs are across country, covering all 48 states.  You could be away from home for two to three weeks at a time.    Home time is not as long as other positions.  You might recognize some of these companies.
    • Everyone believes that these are the only jobs that you can get when you get out of school but there are other jobs available.





  • Regional
    • ​​Regional jobs cover any part of the 11 western states.  The time away from home is usually not as long but still requires some  away time.
    • Most long-haul or over-the-road companies offer the ability to drive regional, however the pay will be less.






  • Local
    • This is home!  Home in your bed every night.  Most companies pay by the hour unless it is an agricultural company that may pay a percentage of the load.

What kind of jobs are there for me?

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average of all occupations. As the economy grows, the demand for goods will increase, and more truck drivers will be needed to keep supply chains moving.


As the economy continues to grow, so does the demand for goods to be transferred.  How does everything travel in the US?  It starts on a truck.
