There are not many career options that are flexible, stable and well paying. Truck driving is one of them, and while it can also be a tough life, it is one that many drivers come to love very quickly. As a driver, there is no limit to the type of truck driving options available – and we’re not just talking about the size of the trucks, or the kind of goods you carry. Truck drivers have a lot of options when it comes to where they drive as well, and that includes overseas work and military work as well.
It’s interesting to talk to different types of truck drivers. Long distance drivers will tell you their local intra-city cousins have it tough. Stop-start driving, traffic lights, and heavy traffic can make truck driving tough. Those local drivers will tell you that long distance drivers have it tough. They are away from their families for long periods, they spend days in the trucks, even sleeping in them, and the open highway is so boring. The truth is somewhere in between for both drivers, with each option having plenty of pluses and minuses. Like most careers, you make it your own and get what you want out of it.
What most truck drivers will agree on is that they really do enjoy what they do. How many careers only require five week’s training, provide the flexibility that truck drivers have, and in many cases, very stable working lives. Add to that a great paycheck, and you have the perfect career. If you can drive a car, are reasonably fit, and can learn new skills, then you’re on the way to becoming a truck driver.
