If you are new to the truck driver profession and do not have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) most trucking companies will require you to have graduated from an accredited truck driving school and have received your CDL.  There are basically two types of truck driving schools:

 

(1) Private Truck Driving Schools.  These truck driving schools are licensed by the state to provide training and provide you with a CDL.  Most of these truck driving schools require two to three weeks of training, which include both classroom and behind the wheel training to become a truck driver with a CDL.  Some of these school are owned and operated by trucking companies and only provide training for new truck drivers for their trucking company.  All of these truck driving schools require a tuition payment or a contract to work for a company for a certain time period.

 

(2) Public Truck Driving Schools.  These truck driving schools are usually part of the community colleges system or trade schools in a particular state.  These schools also provide both classroom and behind the wheel training, but usually take longer to receive your commercial drivers license and to become a truck driver. 

 

Since the Patriot Act and the terrorist attack of 9/11/2001 getting a CDL has become more difficult to obtain.  Some states will not issue a CDL license to an individual that are not a resident of their state.  If they do most require you to transfer it to your state of residence in 60 to 90 days. This may require you to take another CDL test in your state.  Make sure to contact your state of residence and find out their CDL requirements before going to a school out of State. Also to receive a hazardous materials endorsement on your commercial drivers license usually requires finger printing and a federal criminal check.
