At Lorac Academy, our goal is to train the next generation of commercial truck drivers to join the workforce in the transportation and supply chain industries. Qualified, reliable truckers are always in demand, and this career offers steady work, competitive pay, and flexibility.
Our experienced instructors will teach you all that you need to know to earn your Class A CDL license, and we can assist you with job placement as well so that you can get your new career off to the right start. In this article, we’ll go over a few reasons why we encourage you to sign up to earn your commercial driver’s license.
- Job Security– As we mentioned, there is a constant need for qualified truck drivers to transport goods across the country, which means a career as a commercial driver offers reliable job security. In addition, there is currently a shortage of qualified drivers, which means that once you earn your Class A CDL license, you won’t have trouble finding a job. If you are looking for consistent work, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Freedom and Flexibility– Another benefit of working as a commercial driver is that you will enjoy greater flexibility. Instead of being stuck in an office all day, you will be on the road, taking in the scenery and exploring new places. On top of that, you will have greater freedom to select jobs and set your own schedule.
- Great Pay and Benefits– A third reason to sign up to earn your Class A CDL license is because a career as a truck driver offers great competitive pay and benefits. On average, a new CDL driver earns about $41,000 in their first year, and many trucking companies offer sign-on bonuses as well. Many companies also offer benefits packages that include health insurance, paid vacation time, and even retirement options.
