The Complete Guide To A Career In Trucking

Can I bring my pets with me as a truck driver?

What about my pets? Can I bring them with me?

Depending on the company, you may be able to bring your animal friends along with you on the road. Every company will have a different policy, and will probably require refundable or non-refundable deposits and fees, as well as restrictions on the type and number of pets allowed.

Keep in mind that during CDL school, and company training, you will normally not be able to bring your pets along, so other arrangements would have to be made. Also depending on the company and the type of freight, customers may not allow pets on the premises, or may require that they remain in the truck at all times.
