California Professional Truck Driving Championships

Driver Recognition Program

The California Professional Truck Driving Championships are organized to recognize and promote safe driving and professionalism in the transportation industry. This competitive event is designed to give drivers a chance to test their job skills under standardized conditions using vehicles that are the tools of their trade.  Truck driving championships afford a safe, accurate check of the driver's ability to handle his/her unit in close quarters.


Two regional competitions are held within the state - North and South. The winners from each class of competition, from each region, come together to compete in the State Finals Competition.

The state finals winners will compete with other states’ winners at the National Truck Driving Championships. The National Truck Driving Championships are held by ATA in various cities throughout the nation. This year's competition will be held August 14-17, 2019 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
