Traveling the country and discovering new adventures is a lot of people’s dream retirement. For Class A CDL licensed Truck Drivers, driving across the country, seeing new places, and meeting new people are a routine part of their job. The great thing is that the pay and benefits are fantastic. Truck Drivers can make up to $850 per week totaling up to $45,000 per year! They also typically get Health & Dental Insurance, Paid Time Off, and 401k Retirement Benefits.
Delivery Drivers, Bus Drivers, and Taxi/Limo Drivers are upgrading their driving careers to get their Class A CDL in large numbers. Roadmaster has seen dramatic increases in the number of Forklift Operators, Tow Truck Drivers, and other heavy machinery operators making the change to professional truck driving. Uber and Lyft Drivers are also now taking their love of driving to the next level by attending short term 3-4 Week CDL Training at Roadmaster Drivers School.
For some of us, driving is in our blood. Our families have delivered the goods and services, that we use every day in order to provide a better life for themselves. Now it’s our turn to carry on that tradition while providing a stable source of income and security for our ourselves and our own families.
It’s easy to fall into a routine, but many people are ready to make a change in their lives and try something new. The truck driver shortage is so severe right now that pay, bonuses, and benefits are increasing to record highs to attract more new drivers so that they can take their careers to the next level.
CDL Training classes take only 3-4 weeks at Roadmaster and can be completed at any of our nationwide locations. Up to 100% financial assistance is available for those who qualify and many of our locations are approved for Veterans training. We also offer career services to walk you through the job application process and introduce you to potential future employers.
The demand for Class A CDL licensed truck drivers is so high that many carriers we work with will pay up to 100% of the cost of training through Tuition Reimbursement. You can even team up with a partner to make even more money since the truck doesn’t have to stop for rest breaks as often as with a solo driver. Team Drivers split the combined mileage driven which means first-year drivers make closer to $60,000 to $65,000 per year.
