About the Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition
Participants in the TDC take a written test that focuses on safety rules and regulations, perform a pre-trip inspection, and navigate a driving course designed to push their skills to the limit. Drivers can register for the following classes: 3-Axle, 4-Axle, 5-Axle, Flatbed, Sleeper, Step Van, Straight Truck, Tank Truck, or Twin Trailers.
Technicians competing in TechComp also take a written test, participate in two hours of education, and compete at ten stations designed to test their knowledge of truck maintenance. These stations include belts, brakes, electrical, engine diagnostics, fasteners, fifth wheel, HVAC, live engine, PMI, and tire and wheel.
On Saturday evening, drivers and technicians will be celebrated during the Awards Banquet. This is a family-friendly event and the TDC driving course is open to the public.
