This week all over the United States we will celebrate together the National Holiday Veteran’s Day. November 11, is the date to honor American veterans of all wars. This day brings a long history of memories for so many veterans that are currently serving or have served in the military. Transitioning from a career in the military back into the civilian world can sometimes be a stressful period of their life. Veterans leaving the service are often confronted with an extremely tough job market and struggle to match their skills with a civilian career.
The transportation industry is experiencing tremendous growth and is currently experiencing a shortage of good truck drivers due to the new safety regulations. The Department of Transportation has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs to help military personnel and veteran’s transition from military training and job specialty skills acquired in the service to exciting careers in the commercial truck industry. The disciplined, get it done mindset that our armed forces instills in its service men and women has proven to be an ideal match for a career as a commercial truck driver. What better way to become your own boss, support your family and to continue to service your country by delivering goods and commodities to America every day.

New federal rules and regulations now allow State driver licensing agencies, the right to waive the commercial truck driver license skills test for military personnel who have two years of safe driving experience in a large commercial truck or bus. Other restrictions may be applied by each individual state.
