If you are a Michigan resident with a clean driving record and a willingness to work hard, consider becoming a truck driver. Truck drivers earn good salaries and enjoy raises over time. The job outlook for individuals in this field is exceedingly bright, as the industry is sure to need drivers for years to come. Furthermore, with a commercial driver's license (CDL) and training, you'll be employable in Michigan and throughout the country.
No matter where you live, a clean driving record is an absolute must for obtaining a CDL. Before you can obtain a CDL in any state, including Michigan, your driver's license record will be checked using a national database. This database is checked to be sure that individuals with blemished driving records do not obtain CDLs by concealing their violations, suspensions, or revocations.
Driving Records and Michigan Truck Driver Training
Those interested in CDLs must have relatively clear driver's licenses for the two-year period before applying for a CDL. This means a CDL candidate cannot have any type of suspended or revoked driver's license. A candidate cannot have more than one license or have more than one conviction for a serious traffic violation. Additionally, a candidate who has been convicted of a disqualifying motor vehicle offense or has been at fault in an accident within the last two years cannot obtain a CDL.
