Bill D’Alessandro (@BillDA) and Mills Snell (@thegeneralmills) talk about a CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) Training and Education Center in the state of Texas. Most students who earn their Class A CDL and graduate will go on to work in over-the-road (OTR) trucking. This indicates that they travel greater distances, log more miles, and typically drive across the United States. As a result, their wages are the highest of any class of truck drivers.
We will be discussing important key points such as the current situation of CDL Drivers, transferability, and the current line of business competition.
