Get on the road in 20 days with training from Delta Tech.

The Commercial Truck Driving course prepares a person to take the Mississippi, Arkansas, or Tennessee CDL licensing exam that is necessary to become a Licensed Commercial Truck Driver.  Once you obtain a CDL the options are endless, from driving grain trucks locally to spending weeks traveling the lower 48 on long hauls.

The American Trucking Association states there is a large shortage of good drivers and anyone who gets into truck driving can count on being in demand.  According to the Dept. of Labor, the truck driving field is also expecting to increase by 21% between now and 2020.  A Commercial Truck Driver in Mississippi can earn anywhere between $21,600 and $56,200. *  Truck Driving is a promising career on which you can rely.
