Truck Driver Jobs Vs. Driving with Uber

Back before people had jobs driving delivery trucks, long-haul semi-trailer trucks or even moving trucks, we used to move goods around the country the old-fashioned way–by railroad. Later, with the construction of the interstate highway system, driving a heavy truck and moving goods between warehouses, distribution centers and shipping ports became a popular job in many states. People interested in these types of truck driving jobs need to be at least 21, have a Commercial Driver’s License, pass a physical test and either go to a truck driving school or attend a truck driving course for several months.

Of course, if you like driving, but don’t want a job that requires you to be away from home on long-haul routes, driving with Uber is a very popular new options. Plus, with Uber you don’t need a special commercial license, you don’t need to go to extra truck driving school, and you can earn great money on your own flexible schedule.
