How to Turn Driving Into a Professional Job

Some people were born to be behind the wheel – and there are many ways to turn this unique passion into a professional full-time career. If you love driving and would like to spend some more time doing it, here are a few ways to turn driving into a professional job.

Love Driving?

If you love driving and want to do it full-time, there are a few great careers out there.

  • Transportation
  • Trucking
  • Stunt Driving
  • Chauffeur

#1: Transportation

There are many viable careers within professional transportation, ranging from driving for taxi companies like Uber through to opting for professional limo driving in Vegas. Even ambulance driving for emergency services can count as a possible professional driving career. Of course, transportation often covers getting people from one point to another, but it can also sometimes involve transporting goods, foods and/or medically sensitive items on behalf of courier companies.

Doing it requires a special transportation license, and an advanced driving course is recommended.

#2: Trucking

Professional trucking is a million-dollar-per-year industry, and for anyone capable and willing to drive across state lines on a tight schedule, it could be a dream career. Sometimes trucking can involve driving long hours, long roads and at night – but for  many people, it’s what they love most.

Many truckers start by owning their own truck, but many also don’t. If you don’t own your own truck at first, you can sign up with a professional trucking company. A special license in order to drive a larger vehicle is usually required for this kind of professional driving.

#3: Stunt Driving

Professional stunt driving offers high-octane excitement that few other driving careers can match. If you’re an adrenaline junkie by heart, this might be the career for you. Training in stunt driving from an industry professional is recommended, as well as joining a union for professional stunt drivers and setting up a professional website to represent who you are and what you do. Most stunt driving is for the film industry, but many other opportunities exist.

#4: Chauffeur

Being a professional chauffeur involves transporting (usually high-profile) people from one point to another. It often requires a professional driving course, and might require additional stunt driving training as well as basic security training with it – but can be one of the most rewarding careers, particularly if you want a more interpersonal driving experience where you get to connect with many while still enjoying your time behind the wheel.
