Despite the prevalence of truck drivers, many individuals struggle to see the benefits of driving trucks professionally. One of the reasons truck drivers enjoy what they do is the money. On average, they make between $35,000 and $40,000 per year during the first year. Compared to most other industries, this is among the highest average salary for first-year workers. Further, professional truck driving has good job stability. The demand for truck drivers remains relatively stable due to the constant need for individuals and businesses to transport items. Indeed, in the U.S., the trucking industry is rapidly becoming one of the fastest-growing industries in the country.

For many individuals, professional truck driving is most appealing due to its travel opportunities and overall culture. Drivers of both long- and short-haul routes have a great opportunity to see the U.S. Professional drivers often see everything from shorelines and mountain peaks to rural towns. It is a perfect job for those who enjoy exploring. In terms of workplace culture, truck drivers share a unique bond with fellow drivers. For many, being able to stop and interact with fellow drivers is exciting. They get not only to form new relationships, but also to share stories and support one another.
