To begin truck driving, ensure that you will meet the standards for becoming a truck driver in the United States. You’ll need a heavy vehicle driver’s licence. Many employers will must a commercial driver’s licence (CDL). Which you can get from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or learn about from your employer. The CDL taught at several trucking schools in the United States. A truck driver must be at least 18 years old (21 if your work will must you to cross state lines). You must also have prior relevant work experience, as well as a clean driving record.
Second, find an acceptable employment offer from a business with all the required papers such as –
A temporary labour certification for H-2B workers and the successful submission and approval of Form I-129.
You cannot apply for the visa unless you have a job offer and an employer willing to sponsor you. According to the USCIS (U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services), your potential employer must also confirm that the truck driving jobs would be temporary (less than 12 months).
Prove a labour shortage in the United States, and confirm your experience in your industry. The work must also pay at least the going rate for truck drivers in the company’s area. Even some companies pay overtime to the truck drivers. Changes to the laws for H-2B visas made on April 29, 2015, boosting worker rights. Thus, be sure employment proposals contain these new standards.
