Life as a Truck Driver – Balance Between Highway and Home

However, most companies now get their drivers home at least every week, if not more. There are those who choose to spend more time out on the open road, but most companies try to not do that. Plus there are opportunities to local CDL jobs on local routes, so you’d be home to your family most every night.

It is all a personal choice but, if you want and if you can afford to not drive long hauls, then you can still be a full time truck driver and have a family at the same time!

3. Truck drivers don’t have insurance

This is another one of those that persist regardless. Of course there are some companies who don’t offer the best of benefit plans. And there are the owner/operators and the independents out there that are responsible for their own insurance as well as their truck insurance. But even they have options.
