Should You Go to College or Truck Driving School?

Truck 1Should I go to college or earn money truck driving? Why choose between the two, when you can do both? Maybe you’re still saving for college.  Or, you’ve completed school, but aren’t ready to give up your freedom for a 9 to 5 cubicle job. Either way, you don’t have to resist the call of the road.

As a truck driver, you will gain valuable life experience while getting paid to travel the country.  With ever changing scenery and the ability to see new places daily, you’ll never run out of places or things to talk about with family and friends.  And, today’s technology makes it easier than ever to stay in touch by mobile phone, video chat, FaceBook and more.

Truck driving school is also inexpensive when compared to a 4-year university and you can be fully trained in as little as 8 weeks.  Best of all, the pay can be lucrative.  Experienced drivers can average $40,000 to $60,000 per year or more.  So, it’s not a bad way to get a head start on your financial future, save for college, a home, a business or whatever you desire. And should you decide on a long-term career in trucking, you’ll enjoy continued job security and financial reward.
