Have you ever considered a career in the trucking field? This industry is growing quickly in the United States, particularly for drivers that are willing to drive around the country. Before you can begin working as a truck driver, you need to know how to safely drive a tractor-trailer or straight truck. South Central Career Center is the only truck driving school in the city of West Plains.
You can decide to earn a Class A or Class B driver's license; this generally takes two to eight weeks. Both training programs include classroom training as well as a significant amount of on-the-road driving hours.
With a cost of living that's almost 20% below the national average, West Plains is a very affordable city. U.S. Highway 160 and U.S. Highway 63 both run through this city. Local trucking employers include James Stephens Trucking, F Diamond, Dodge Trucking, and Loudon Steel Transportation.
