    A New Beginning For The Unemployed in Riverside County

    If you’ve just lost your job and are wondering what to do next with your career, we’ve got a simple answer: truck driver training at the America Truck Driving School.

    Why Trucking Is A Smart Career Choice

    Out of all the career options available to recently unemployed individuals, trucking is one of the best for a number of reasons.

    Reason #1: Training Is Quick But Thorough

    If you don’t have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you can complete training in just a few short weeks and be on your way to taking the exam in no time. The instructors at American Truck Driving School will make sure you have all the necessary tools to pass your CDL exam, form permit to drive test. America Truck Driving School also prepares students for the real world by hosting company presentations with local recruiters to give you the inside scoop on what the industry is really like and what companies have to offer new drivers. 

    Reason #2: Great Income Potential

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual pay for truck drivers in May 2019 was $45,260, with the top 10 percent earning more than $66,840. Full-time truck drivers can also earn great benefits, such as paid holidays, paid vacation, 401(k), pay raises and health, dental and life insurance.

    Reason #3: Travel Across The US 

    Many truck drivers choose the profession for the chance to see historic landmarks and national parks, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree National Park, Rocky Mountains, Brooklyn Bridge, Mount Rainer and Texas Hill Country. Drivers may either pass through and catch a glimpse of these sights, or take a short break to see them up close. Either way, being a truck driver is a great way to see the beautiful country that is America.

    Reason #4: There’s A Driver Shortage

    Despite the record-setting unemployment levels seen across the country in 2020, the trucking industry is still experiencing a driver shortage. There’s no better time than now for unemployed individuals to begin a career in the trucking industry.
