Truckingunlimited.com is happy to report that congress passed the Military Commercial Driver's License Act of 2012. If this is approved by the president, this bill will serve to simplify and ease the transition of recent veterans into civilian commercial truck drivers. Bill Graves, the CEO and President of the American Trucking Associations, stated “As the economy continues to recover, it is becoming ever more challenging for trucking companies to find qualified drivers to move America's most essential goods,” This is good news for veterans with experience driving trucks in the military. This segment of truck drivers is highly sought after by commercial truck driving companies.
Transitioning into civilian life after military service can present a cornucopia of challenges, which is why we are grateful to congress for quickly passing this piece of legislation. We believe this depicts a beneficial outlook on the commercial driving industry, which can translate into an increase in the demand for truck drivers in the near and distant future. One implementation of this act is that it allows individuals to attain a CDL where they are stationed rather than their home state. This not only provides great job opportunities, but makes it easier for our military personnel to transition into civilian life.
We want to do our part as well, by providing a valuable service, a gateway that is fast and simple to use.
