You may be a local truck driver who’s interested in the variety of job opportunities available for OTR truck drivers, or maybe you’re a new driver who’s interested in getting right into over-the-road driving. No matter what reason you have for applying for OTR trucking jobs in Georgia, you may find that this is an exciting and challenging career path.

All OTR drivers must have a Class A or Class B driver’s license from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. If you don’t have any experience driving a commercial vehicle, this may involve attending truck driving school and going through the testing process. With a commercial driver’s license in your wallet, you can begin applying for CDL jobs in Georgia.

No matter which field you work in, networking is important. However, it’s especially important in truck driving, since truck drivers spend so much time working alone. The Georgia Motor Trucking Association can help you out with networking events, continuing training opportunities, and updates on the Georgia trucking industry.

As a Georgia OTR driver, you may enjoy being part of the trucking industry as a whole. Business in Savannah reports that a major leader in the field recently met with drivers to discuss legislative changes.

Across the state, salaries for truck drivers are fairly similar to nationally-reported averages. O*Net reports that  tractor-trailer drivers in Georgia earn an average of $39,200 per year. Their data shows an anticipated 14% increase in jobsthrough 2022 (O*Net, 2012).

OTR trucking companies in Georgia may offer a wide range of benefits to attract new drivers, which can make your job search much easier. On top of your base pay, you may receive bonus pay for hazardous materials transportation or for especially long hauls. Health, dental, and vision insurance may also be offered.
