All local truck driving jobs require a commercial driver's license (CDL). These licenses require several weeks of training and passing the CDL test. Many truck driving schools offer training to individuals who have not yet obtained a CDL. Many trucking companies also offer training for drivers with no experience to prepare them to take the CDL test.

Local truck drivers typically work eight- to 10-hour daily shifts and are home every night. Some light and delivery truck drivers never leave the city in which they live. Long-haul truckers travel extensively within a region of the country on frequent overnight trips. They also benefit from mileage and shift premiums not available to local truck drivers. Over-the-road truckers travel across the continent and are on the road for weeks at a time. Many trucking companies hire drivers with no experience for all of these positions.
