Qualified commercial truck drivers are in high demand. Commercial truck drivers transport goods from city to city and state to state and serve a vital function to keep the economy running.

YAKIMA, WA, February 08, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Becoming a trucker in Washington State requires training and licensing. In the case of long-haul truckers, choosing the career involves making a lifestyle choice to be away from home and family for days or weeks at a time. Anyone considering a career in the trucking industry should do their research and understand the demands of the job and what to expect.

To help people ask the right questions when exploring a truck driving career, Mariano Morales Law has commissioned a Guide to Trucking Careers in Washington State to serve as an informative resource.

To be a tractor-trailer driver, you’ll need to receive training and pass a state licensing exam to obtain a commercial driver’s license. The guide contains a list of more than 30 truck driving schools in Washington State, including addresses and phone numbers, for those interested in becoming a trucker in Washington State.

The guide discusses the pros and cons of paying tuition to attend a private trucking school as compared to enrolling in a company-paid training program operated by a trucking company and committing to work for that employer after completing driver training.

The guide contains a list of the top 20 trucking companies for which to work, as ranked by TruckersTraining.com. It discusses factors to consider when evaluating prospective employers. It also addresses truck drivers’ salary and benefits expectations.

The guide also offers tips for staying safe on the road while driving a truck and pointers to avoid mistakes common among new truck drivers. It addresses which days of the week have the highest numbers of tractor-trailer accidents in Washington State based on federal crash data and what steps truck drivers should take after a tractor-trailer accident. Including safety information in the guide continues attorney Mariano Morales’s unwavering focus on public safety.
