You can increase your salary by testing for more endorsements on your license as well as gaining more experience on the roads.

The state of Pennsylvania has some of the highest employment levels for truckers in comparison to the rest of the country.

Other benefits for those in the state include the ability to find schedules that are conducive to one’s lifestyle. If you want to workday or night, have days off on the weekend or during the week, drive locally or cross country, there are opportunities for you.

Laws and Regulations in Pennsylvania

A very important law to note in Pennsylvania is the anti-idling laws. You may only idle for 2 minutes or less in Philadelphia. This is not a lot of time, which means you may have to look at an alternative, particularly in the winter. Your employer may equip your truck with an APU or generator, which means you can avoid getting into trouble due to anti-idling laws.

Traffic laws are also important. You will be required to abide by the same laws as other drivers on the road. If you are given a citation, you will have points added to your license. If too many points are added to your license, you could end up with your CDL being suspended or revoked.

DOT regulations are federal guidelines that must be abided by. This includes watching how many hours you work in a week as well as how many hours you drive consecutively before you take a break. Monthly reports will need to be submitted to the DOT to prove you are following guidelines. This may be the responsibility of you or your employer.

Other regulations involve endorsements on your CDL. You may need endorsements if you drive a truck with hazardous materials or air brakes – or a variety of other things.
