Getting Your CDL in Order to Work for Trucking Companies in Oklahoma

The trucking companies in Oklahoma will only hire applicants who have a valid Commercial Drivers License (CDL). To get your CDL, you must first apply for your Oklahoma Commercial Learners Permit (CLP). This process involves providing documentation of your age, residency, current medical status, and your ability to drive a vehicle. You will then to pay any applicable fees and pass the CDL general knowledge test. When you have completed these steps, you will be granted a CLP.

There is no required waiting period to take your CDL driving test once you have your CLP. However, you should feel confident that you can pass the test and be able to provide your own commercial vehicle for the test that is the same class of CDL that you are applying for.

If you wish to apply for endorsements such as Hazmat, Tank, or Doubles and Triples, you can usually test on the same day. Getting endorsements may seem like an extra hassle, however, they can increase your chances of being offered CDL jobs in Oklahoma and also potentially provide you with a higher wage. In fact, some trucking companies in Oklahoma will even pay you to obtain these endorsements.

What do the trucking companies in Oklahoma require of their drivers?

Driving Conditions for Truck Drivers in Oklahoma

Road and driving conditions can be one of the most frustrating aspects of working as a driver for trucking companies in Oklahoma. However, this state has a mild climate and is not overly populated, making conditions better than what they are in many other states.

Truck drivers here will occasionally encounter winter driving conditions and perhaps even some high temperatures in the summer. Congested roads are not common here unless you are traveling through major cities such as Oklahoma City or Tulsa.

If you become a truck driver for one of the many trucking companies in Oklahoma, you should be aware that this state frequently experiences severe weather in the form of severe thunderstorms, high winds, hail, and even tornadoes. Severe weather can come out of nowhere and catch you off guard in an instant. If you will be driving in Oklahoma, be sure to stay tuned to local weather reports and have a plan of action in case you encounter any of these severe weather conditions.
