There are different age requirements based on law. Drivers must be 18+ to drive within state lines, 21+ years of age to drive across state lines and haul hazardous materials, and 25+ to be school bus drivers.

A Growing, Stable Career

The demand for CDL positions in Tennessee is expected to increase nearly 20 percent between now and 2030. Drivers are needed for the transportation of goods across the state, as well as local delivery drivers, bus drivers and other jobs that require a CDL. Distributing supplies and goods is critical to the success of many industries, meaning the demand for qualified drivers is likely to remain consistent and provide job stability for years to come.

High Income Potential

Not many careers can offer a national average annual salary of $71,000 after only two months of training, but truck driving does just that! Many drivers can earn annual incomes of more than $100,000 after just a few years of experience. Many employers offer signing bonuses and excellent benefits packages for full-time drivers.

Opportunity to Travel, Stay Close to Home

Truck driving can provide an adventurous lifestyle traveling throughout the state or the country, meeting new people and seeing different parts of Tennessee and the United States. For those who prefer to remain close to home, positions for bus drivers, local delivery drivers and short-haul trucking are a good option.
