U.S. National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC) Information

Every year, the American Trucking Associations sponsor the National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC). The industry's safest and most-skilled drivers strive to qualify for this challenging competition. For many, it's a yearly safety goal.

To get there, drivers must be accident-free for one year before the event and place first in their state contest among other eligibility requirements. The NTDC challenges competitors' driving skills and knowledge of truck safety in three ways: maneuverability test, pretrip inspection and written examination.

Beyond the competition, the NTDC also brings drivers and their families together for a special week of fellowship and company pride. That's why most drivers who have attended say it's one of the highlights of their careers.

The 2013 U.S. National Truck Driving Championships will be Aug. 20–24 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City.
