Commercial Vehicle Drivers 

CDL drivers transport goods between locations using tractor trailers and heavy trucks. They often travel extensive distances to deliver their loads and must adhere to traffic and safety regulations while still making their deliveries on time. CDL drivers must hold a commercial driver’s license, which takes three to six months to obtain. Some people expand the types of employment available to them by acquiring additional certifications to become hazardous materials drivers. CDL drivers in New Mexico earn an average of $43,650 per year. 

 

Bus Drivers

Bus drivers transport people between various places, including, work, school, and shopping centers, and across state and national borders. Some drive regular routes, and others transport passengers on chartered trips or sightseeing tours. They drive a range of vehicles, from 15-passenger buses to 60-foot articulated buses. A CDL is required. Bus drivers in New Mexico earn an average of $31,050 per year.
