December 23, 2022

Do Your Research! 

Since you probably won’t have an opportunity for experiential learning before going out on the road by yourself, research is key and should be done often in order to learn about the industry. Read truck driving publications and magazines such as Overdrive Magazine, Landline Magazine, and The Trucker. These publications will inform you about new industry standards, technologies used, and even current events involving trucking from across the globe. Even more critical to read, though, may be a blog written by a truck driver about their experiences on the road. Check out this list of blogs recommended for drivers who are new to the industry. From reading blogs, you’ll learn more about the challenges and rewards that working as a truck driver can present.   

Interview a Trucker   

While you may not be able to ride along with a professional truck driver, you may be able to speak with one for a little while. Just like you would network for other jobs, set up a time to speak with a professional over coffee. Unsure of how to get in touch with someone in the field? Contact your local truck driving school to see if they could help you out in any way.   

Pursuing Your CDL? 

If you’ve done some of the above and have made the decision to enroll, there’s good news! Becoming a truck driver requires a lot of consideration, but once you begin the process, you can be out on the road in no time, enjoying the lifestyle that truck driving has to offer.
