The Truck Driving Championships (TDC) is designed to promote safety in the trucking industry. Each driver has a chance to demonstrate his or her driving skill and knowledge of the trucking industry through a series of tests. The drivers are given a written examination, pre-trip inspection test and finally the most visible - the field test.

Drivers will compete for a chance to go to the American Trucking Associations' National Truck Driving Championship taking place in Orlando, FL, August 9 – 12, 2017.

The Association will also be presenting annual safety awards, which include the "Driver of the Year" and the "State Police Safety Award" tributes, at a dinner following the competition.
