There are many people who feel most comfortable behind a steering wheel. Some people prefer fast, sporty speedsters, others prefer the big trucks. While this passion remains a hobby for many people throughout their lives, others are looking to develop professionally in this direction and, at some point, to get money for driving the roads.
But how exactly can such a career start look like and, above all, how do you find it in the first place?
One possibility, of course, is to change to the left lane on the motorway, put the pedal to the metal and hope that an impressed Formula 1 official with good business connections is sitting in the car behind you. However, the probability of success in this way is comparable to the probability of winning the jackpot each time in five consecutive lottery draws. However, the lottery draws would have the advantage that you would not run the risk of destroying your car and everything in it forever.
Therefore, it may be advisable to seek an education or training that will allow you to do your job on the road with expertise and without risk.
How exactly can that be done?
While the sportsmen among the engine fans will find it more difficult to get a proper start in their industry, it looks a lot brighter for prospective truckers. Because truck drivers are still in demand and the industry offers the best opportunities for advancement.
An optimal way to enter this professional field is therefore to complete an IHK master course to become a master for motor traffic. In a period of six months or two years – depending on the intensity of the course (part-time or full-time) – all relevant processes for truck drivers of all kinds are taught here and company-specific connections to these processes are shown. Due to the widespread recognition of IHK qualifications, the final examination at the IHK offers the best opportunities to successfully enter the profession of master in motor transport (IHK) and to climb the career ladder quite quickly with a little skill.
