I have learned a lot from my 40 years as a professional driver.
There are 5 things that every one considering a truck driving career and those who are new to the industry should know.
There are pros and cons to driving with a team partner. While many people can choose to drive on a team, some training schools require that you pair up with a trainer in order to complete your CDL training. Whatever your situation, there are definitely going to be ‘ups and downs’ of running team in a big rig.
I received this letter from a proud new trucker. I am aware of his identity. He was not afraid to reveal his identity, however after some discussion, I thought it best that the letter remain anonymous.
I could write a ‘thesis’ about this letter. It’s loaded with ‘life lessons’.
I hope the some of the unhappy truckers out there, might take some advice, from this man who knows a good thing when he see it.
A truck driving job can earn you a good living. There’s also lots of jobs out there in the industry, that aren’t worth having, I’ll give you that.
But, if you really want to make it as a trucker, whether company driver or owner operator, YOU NEED TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Enough from me. Read the letter.
