Florida Owner Operator Trucking Jobs

With so many owner operator jobs in Florida to choose from, you can often choose the industry you wish to be involved in.

When you work as an owner operator, you choose what kind of truck you want to drive, what hours you want to work and what industry you want to work in. However, there are also more responsibilities, too. You will need to maintain DOT records and submit them to the state to maintain compliance. If you fail to watch your hours and you work more than the allotted hours in a day or a week, you may be subject to penalties or license suspension.

You will also want to consider various endorsements on your license. For example, you may want:

  • Passenger
  • Hazmat
  • Tanker
