Becoming A Truck Driver - Choosing A Truck Driving School

Choosing a truck driving school is a very important part of becoming a truck driver.  After all, it's at trucking school that you'll learn the skills needed to begin a new career and there's nothing more important than that.  In the video below, we catch up with PAM Transport driver Tim Ross to find out why he chose Driver Solutions.  As Tim says in the video below, he didn't want a school that would teach him just the bare minimum.  He took his time making the decision, called around to several different trucking schools and even talked with drivers at truck stops before finding the company sponsored CDL training program offered by Driver Solutions.  This one-of-a-kind CDL sponsorship allowed Tim to go to truck driving school with no upfront tuition costs. 

Once at school, Tim learned the classroom knowledge needed to pass his CDL permit test, developed his driving skills on the range, and ultimately took to the road behind the wheel of a big rig.  Now that he's got some experience behind the wheel, two of his favorite things are traveling the country and meeting new people. 

Choosing a truck driving school was just the first step in Tim's journey to becoming a truck driver.  Check out the video series below for an in depth look at what it's like to start a new career.
