Truck driving school is expensive, does it pay off and is the job worth taking?

    Many companies will train you.  I took the class and found that the biggest problem was that many potential drivers did not qualify to cross the border.   If you do not have a criminal record, and do not mind driving long hours, it can pay well.  Eventually, you will be replaced by an automated truck that can go 24 hours per day and never make mistakes.  But that is a few years off.

    40 thousand Mexicans and red necks can't be wrong. It must be worth it.

    i mean u can do it if u want to but it kind of sucks cuz the pay isn't that great and any idiot can do it. i dont think truck driving school is actually that expensive, they just try to scam people and say "oh well now you owe 5,000 or 10,000 dollars for your schooling, so you're gonna have to drive the truck for free for like 5 months. which is pretty gay.
