Event Description:

The Oklahoma Trucking Association and Oklahoma Safety & Security Council hosts the state Truck Driving Championships.  This two-day event puts each contestant through their paces with the challenges of a written exam, personal interview, pre-trip inspection, and a skills course.  After the competition is over we celebrate the accomplishments of these safe drivers at our awards banquet.  Winners of each class go on to compete in the ATA National Truck Driving Championship. 

Once the OTA receives driver forms we will mail Facts for Drivers books to the company contact.

Eligible drivers must be accident-free for a year and drive for a company that is a member in good standing with the OTA.

ATA Battle of the States Qualification: Each driver who wins 1-3 place in the TDC competing class will automatically qualify for Oklahoma's Battle of the States to advance, however, all other OTA members can register any driver to compete for the one wild card position to also qualify to compete in the Battle of the States competition.

April 2021 Update: It is with great pleasure to inform you that the Oklahoma Trucking Association Board of Directors has officially recommended the Oklahoma Safety Security Council to move forward with the 2021 Oklahoma State Truck Driving Championships.

March 2021 Update: At this time our OTA Board of Directors has not made a decision to cancel the state TDC, although the ATA has chosen to cancel Nationals.

Notable 2021 TDC/NTDC Rule Changes:

NTDC/NSVDC Retirement of Champions Rule

Rule: A contestant, who has appeared, competed and/or won the same class of competition in two (2) consecutive ATA National Truck Driving Championships, shall not be eligible to compete in the entering class of competition at the following two (2) consecutive ATA National Truck Driving Championships. A contestant, who has appeared, competed and/or won the same class of competition in two (2) consecutive ATA National Step Van Driving Championships, shall not be eligible to compete in the Step Van Class of competition the following ATA
National Step Van Driving Championship.

Update: The NTDC Committee has agreed to consider 2020 a retirement year. All drivers retired from a class of competition at the 2020 National Truck Driving Championships or 2020 National Step Van Driving Championships will have it counted towards their retirement record. For example, a driver who competed in the 3-Axle Class in both 2017 and 2018 National Truck Driving Championships is ineligible to compete in the 3-Axle class in 2019 and the canceled 2020 event, and is again eligible to compete in the 3-Axle class at the 2021 National Truck
Driving Championships.

Addition (8/23/2020): The NTDC Committee has agreed to consider 2020 an “off year.” All drivers who compete in a class of competition at the 2019 National Truck Driving Championships or 2019 National Step Van Championships and subsequently compete in the same class of competition in at the 2021 National Truck Driving Championships or 2021 National Step Van Championships, are eligible compete in the same class of competition in
