Truck Drivers

Advancement Prospects

Some over-the-road drivers who stay with their employers advance by becoming safety supervisors, driver supervisors, or dispatchers. Many over-the-road drivers look forward to going into business for themselves by acquiring their own tractor-trailer rigs.

Those who are their own mechanics and have formal business training are in the best position to do well.
