There are some truckers that are in a class all of their own. Driving a
big truck or semi-tractor trailer over thirty thousand pounds requires a
special license – a Class A license. This is like the big leagues of
truck driving. Those Class "A" truckers all had to earn their Commercial
Driver's License (CDL) first before securing that Class "A" status. So
what exactly is involved in earning that Class A license? Let’s find
out...

First of all, as mentioned above, truckers have to earn their CDL first.
And depending on the state in which you live, there are a certain amount
of years you have to hold a CDL license before being eligible to earn a
Class A license. In addition, obtaining a Class A license means heading
back to truck driving school and the classroom for more instruction, as
much as six to eight weeks. Truckers who are licensed Class A often drive
those large trucks like the tankers or ones that handle hazardous
materials. And because that load is more difficult, additional
instruction is necessary in order to learn how to deal with it.

Earning that Class A license opens more doors of opportunity with
trucking companies. It is tougher to get that Class A designation, so
those trucking jobs that require it often pay more money. And since the
field of trucking is a growth industry, this is great news for the Class
A truckers. In certain parts of the country, trucking companies are
recruiting like crazy, offering awesome pay with lots of benefits to lure
these truckers to work for them, even those with newly earned Class A
licenses that have not had a lot of experience driving those bigger rigs.
A trucking company taking a chance on a new Class A licensed recruit is
making a big investment that could potentially pay off for both parties.

So where are the trucking companies that offer these prime trucking jobs
for Class A license holders? You have to know where to look! Start with
your local newspapers and employment agencies. Talk with the counselors
at the truck driving school. Chances are that recruiters often inform
them of open positions within their trucking company. Finally, there is
the internet. Do a web search of the trucking companies in your area and
visit their websites. Truckers can find a lot of information about Class
A licensed trucking jobs through that avenue.

These truckers work hard to earn that Class A license. Most   often, these
truck drivers go for it because of the challenge of driving   a big rig
over thirty thousand pounds as well as the increase in pay.   No matter
what their motivation is, driving trucks that big earn them   the status of
being a Class "A" Act.
