Our CDL school trainers have one more key piece of advice for new drivers to succeed on the road:
Embrace the trucking lifestyle.
It’s More than Just a Trucking Job
Becoming a truck driver is more than just starting a new job.
It’s the start of a completely new lifestyle too.
It can be a difficult transition going from a job that has you work regular hours to one that can have you driving through the middle of the night. You’re going to be traveling to a different town or city just about every day, but the best thing you can do is to embrace the lifestyle that comes with trucking.
Luckily, the challenge is no secret in the industry, so various truckers, CDL school trainers, and companies offer up great advice on how to adjust successfully.
Check out one of Driver Solutions' trainer's best pieces of advice for new drivers:
CDL School Can Lead to Amazing Opportunities
Look at the new lifestyle as a positive rather than a negative. After all, it’s one of the greatest opportunities to see things and place that most can only dream of (while making money, too).
Being on the road can lead to various personal opportunities as well. One by one, you'll be able to check things off your bucket list, and perhaps find new things to add to that list as well.
One great example of a driver taking advantage of the opportunities that come with the trucking lifestyle is PAM Transport driver Scott Evans. Since starting with PAM, he's been able to see some of his favorite professional sports teams play in their home states, which wouldn't have been possible had he not decided to get into trucking.
