Benefits of a Trucking Career

You can get started within a trucking career very quickly. This is because you will not need to visit a university or college to get a degree. You will also be able to complete a CDL training program within months. Once you have your CDL, you will then be able to get started within your career – which also means you will not have to worry about student loans like people in many other career fields.

Another benefit to a trucking career is that you will be able to find schedule that works for your lifestyle.

Laws & Regulations in Wyoming

A variety of laws and regulations exist in Wyoming. While you will be required to adhere to all of them, traffic laws are some of the most important ones to be aware of. You will need to abide by all posted speed limits and know about all of the other laws. Should you receive a citation, it can result in a significant fine for you to pay as well as points being added to your license. If you receive four moving violations in a 12 month period, your license could be suspended.

In the winter months, you will want to know about the laws regarding studded tires and snow chains. In snow emergencies, you will be able to use snow chains. In other winter conditions, your truck will be allowed to have studded tires, ensuring you have the necessary traction to get through snow and ice.

DOT regulations must also be followed. This ensures you are not driving for more than 14 hours consecutively and that you are not working more than 70 hours in an eight day workweek (60 hours in a seven day workweek if you are not working every day). The DOT regulations are adhered to by submitting monthly reports – which may or may not be your responsibility to submit.

Depending upon the vehicle you drive, you will need to pay close attention to the endorsements you have on your license. Unless you have the proper endorsements, you will not be able to drive a tanker, a truck with air brakes, transport hazardous materials, or a variety of other items.
