All About Commercial Driver’s License

Driving big rigs is like a disease. Once you start, it’s very difficult to quit. There’s no patch or drug to cure it, it’ll be in your blood forever. Anyone who’s been driving for any length of time will tell you. Even though “trucking” has taken a dive over the last decade, and the “fun” has disappeared, the “truck” in itself, still remains a status symbol for many.

Sitting up in the chair, overlooking the landscape as it flies by, gives unto itself, a sense of freedom to the driver. The more time spent behind the wheel, the more addicting it becomes.

To the newbie

If you are entertaining the thought of becoming a truck driver, there are a few things to consider first. If you have family, you really need to go over the pros and cons with them, don’t leave anything out.

The best training you can get is from a veteran over the road driver that is still operating, this will give you a taste of “real” trucking.

Learn the basic mechanics of a truck, and I don’t mean just how to change a light bulb, there will be times you’ll be broke down in the middle of nowhere.

Research driving schools remembering you get what you pay for, don’t just settle for one because it’s close.
Keep in mind, if you are not fortunate enough to take a few trips with an experienced driver, real-world trucking is not taught in truck driving schools.

If you have been learning in a truck with an automatic transmission, you might want to check your state or provincial regulations before your road test. Some states and provinces will not grant you your full class 8 or “A” license with an automatic.
