More Female Truck Drivers On the Road
By: Lance Winslow

The number of female truck drivers has steadily increased over the years and today there are more women truck drivers than ever before. Not only are there more local women truck drivers, but there are also more long-haul truck drivers who are female.

In 1995 there were 130,000 female truck drivers and in 2005 there were 155,000 female truck drivers state; the American trucking Association. These figures are confirmed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, part of the US federal government. The number of female truck drivers is increasing at a greater rate than ever before and by the end of 2007 is expected there will be over 200,000 female truck drivers.

Next time you pass a truck on the freeway perhaps you will look over and notice that it is not a male driver but rather a female and realize she is not alone. There's a growing number of female truck drivers on the road and that trend is expected to continue well into the next decade. Please consider all this in 2006.

Truck Driving Schools
   There are literally hundreds of truck driving schools across the country, each with different programs.  As with any business, there are good ones and there are bad ones.  But you have to know what to look for in a trucking school.
  There are essentially
three different types of truck driver training programs.  The first is a private school, the second is a public institution and the third is a training program run by a motor carrier.


The real issue is that there is a shortage of truck drivers in the United States that over the next decade could be as high as 700,000 and someone has to fill the gap. Interestingly enough female truck drivers tend to be very safe drivers and therefore they make excellent candidates for truck drivers.
