Breaker, breaker, you're ready for a great career. Truck drivers move materials from point A to Point B, usually with a stop in the middle for a 64-ounce soda and some beef jerky. Truck drivers are behind the wheel of tractor-trailers- big, 16-wheel vehicles that can carry items between cities or across many states.

Truck drivers have to know the highways and roads, observe traffic laws, and be able to stay focused on the road whether it's a one hour trip or a cross-country haul. Truck drivers work independently or for a trucking company, and work with dispatchers to get assignments and report incidents. They plan their own routes, inspect the truck and cargo for any possible issues along the way, and keep logs of their trip.

HOW MUCH DO TRUCK DRIVERS MAKE?
  • Hand-Eye Coordination: You will be operating a complex machine while trying to find addresses and observing other drivers on the road. You will need great hand-eye coordination to make sure you are accident free.
  • Hearing: Good hearing isn't just a good idea, it's the law. Federal regulations state that truck drivers must be able to hear a forced whisper in an ear at five feet, without the use of a hearing aid.
  • Stamina: Long days on the road and lifting and moving materials can all be part of your day as a driver.
  • Good Health: Federal laws will not allow people with health conditions like epilepsy or high blood pressure to drive a big rig.
  • Good Vision: You will have to watch everything on the road for potential collisions, accidents and mishaps.
  • Map-Reading Skills: Don't get lost. Learn to read a map.
