Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
My name is [Your Name] and I’m responding to a recent job posting for licensed commercial drivers at [Company Name]. For the last eight years, I’ve been in possession of a Class A Commercial Driver’s License and have obtained both the Tow Truck (W) and combination Tank Truck / Hazardous Materials (X) endorsements. In my current position, I transport fuel for a subcontractor throughout Central Ohio. Before that, I operated a flatbed tow truck for the purposes of clearing roadside accidents and seizing vehicles that were in violation of traffic laws.
I have an outstanding professional driving record with zero DOT violations. Off the clock, I haven’t received so much as a parking ticket in over 15 years. My commitment to safety is second to none and I have a high level of mechanical knowhow, as vehicle restoration and maintenance are a bit of a hobby of mine.
Examples of my work experience that highlight my qualifications:
Operated a tank truck capable of transporting up to 1200-gallons
Reduced the time to distribute by 12% through superior route-planning and navigation
Established professional relationships with 100+ customers in the straight truck moving business
The transition from hauling regional freight to cross-country freight has been my goal since becoming a CDL driver. If hired, I would provide efficient, dedicated and skilled trucking services to [Company Name]. Thank you for allowing me to apply for this position. I look forward to your decision.
