Commercial Truck Driver Career Overview
Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers transport goods from one location to another. Most tractor-trailer drivers operate trucks with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) capacity of more than 26,000 pounds. These drivers are required to obtain a Commercial Drivers License. Some truck drivers deliver goods locally and some over-the-road which spans several states.
With little to no experience in tractor-trailers and truck driving, Scott Renner of Cross Junction, VA came to Lord Fairfax Community College Workforce Solutions to find a new career. Renner selected LFCC as his number one choice. “There were a couple of schools in the area and they didn’t offer as much as what Lord Fairfax offered,” said Renner. “I really liked what they had to offer. It’s a really good program and they take time to help you out if you need a little extra help in certain places. It was a really good choice for me.”
