See How These Truck Driving Benefits Fit into Your New Year’s Resolution

With the new year quickly approaching, it’s time to buckle down and start thinking about the new year’s resolutions you plan to set for yourself. You can accomplish many goals; however, you should tailor your list to your needs and desires. Some possible resolutions you may list include traveling more, making more money, or gaining job security.

If the examples listed above happen to fall on your list, we’re happy to say there is a way to achieve ALL of those and more – truck driving. The benefits of truck driving are plentiful, and only grow bigger with time. The best part: with our CDL training programs, you can begin this new career in as little as four weeks. Keep reading to see how this new career opportunity can allow you to follow through on your New Year’s resolution, and how Diesel Driving Academy can help!

New Year’s Resolution #1: Travel

Truck drivers are paid to travel to different regions of the United States. Seeing majestic sites from your office window as you drive by is a great reward. Utah’s “Devil’s Slide” looks like a place where a supernatural being would slide through our planet’s face. A driver gets to experience the beauty of the season’s changes. Some truck stops offer more than a trucker’s amenities, like one near Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX; or the World’s Largest Truck Stop in Iowa.

Resolution #2: Money

As most say, money makes the world go round. Because of this, it’s important to choose a career that can pay you both monetarily and emotionally. As of 2023, beginning drivers earn up to $70,000 in their first year. And with more experience comes more money. On top of that, some companies and carriers pay various bonuses including, but not limited to, fuel, safety, and recruiting.

New Year’s Resolution #3: Security

Job security is simple to find. Companies are looking for good drivers every day. If one company is not the best fit for you, there is another company down the road. Earning and owning a Class A CDL is an asset that will keep a responsible and safe driver employed until retirement. Truck driving jobs are not going anywhere, because trucks must navigate and complete deliveries to our stores, plants, and ports.
