Why take a CDL Practice Test?

To begin your career in trucking you must obtain your CDL (Commercial Driver’s License). As part of the test, you must pass a series of written CDL tests in order to obtain your CDL endorsements. For all CDL endorsements, including Class A, Class B, and Class C, a written test must be passed.

Every state requires a written CDL exam. This exam is based on Federal Guidelines – the test is the same for every state. The official test changes often, but taking a practice taking a practice CDL test will give you an idea of the score you would receive on an actual CDL test.

Trucking Jobs: High Demand, Low Driver Supply

Trucking companies are currently in a scramble to find certified truckers like those certified by Progressive Truck Driving School. There are currently thousands of openings, but not enough truckers to fill the demand. As the economy picks up speed, there’s a greater need for truckers. It’s a simple equation: when people start spending money, there’s additional freight to move. For this reason, it’s being projected that truck driver salaries will be on a steady increase over the next few years.

There are as many as 200,000 job openings nationwide for long haul truckers, according to David Heller, director of safety and policy for the Truckload Carriers Association.

Although finding certified truck drivers, like those certified by Progressive Truck Diving School, is proving to be a challenge for employers, the pay for Truckers is well above the median wage for all jobs. The top 10% truck drivers make more than $58,000 a year.

One of the reasons for the short supply of divers is simply that drivers aren’t willing to put the time into a training program, like the one offered by Progressive Truck Driving School, even though the training program could lead to a substantial salary and long-term employment. Some tenured truckers are reporting income of $150,000+ after taxes, and some trucking companies are offering signing bonuses in the thousands of dollars for new drivers to sign with them.

Several of the largest long haul trucking companies in the U.S. are currently hiring. Those companies include Swift Transportation , Schneider National, J.B. Hunt Transport Services, and Werner Enterprises – all of which are currently aggressive hiring drivers.
