Find Your Wisconsin Trucking Job

What kinds of truck driving jobs are in Wisconsin? Every kind! From local, dedicated routes that keep you close to home, to Over The Road (OTR) long hauls that take you to the far corners of the country, and everything in between, you can find it here! If you wish to stay close to home, local driving jobs enable you to get home most every day and often provide you with the same route each week. Regional drives take you to neighboring states, but you still stay within the basic geographical area, so you get home most days. If you are looking for something different, OTR jobs will take you to places you’ve likely never seen before. You’ll experience different climates, different topography, and different people and cultures. You’ll even get to eat different foods. These jobs are great for someone who is adventurous. With OTR jobs, you’ll be on the road for several weeks at a time, with stopovers at home in between deliveries.

Requirements for Truck Driving in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation handles the issuance of driver’s licenses and permits of every kind within the state. You must be 18 years old to qualify, or 21 if you wish to drive interstate or carry passengers. You will need to prove your identity, legal residence, and standing to be in the United States, as well as show a valid social security card. You will have to furnish a Medical Examiner’s Form, and take knowledge and vision tests. When you have fulfilled these requirements you will be issued a learner’s permit which you can use to practice driving the class of vehicle for which you are applying for a license, as long as a licensed CDL holder accompanies you. When you are ready, you will make an appointment for your skills test as well as for tests for any endorsements you are seeking to your license. After passing the skills test, you will be issued your CDL.  It can be very helpful to get ready for your CDL by enrolling in a professional commercial driving school, of which there are several, located throughout the state.
