Raw Truth – The REAL Driver Experience

Ok, we’ll be covering some of the general information you wanted to know about the types of jobs available in the industry, but for now, let's get down to the really good stuff you'll need to know...the Raw Truth. There are a number of different entities you will have to deal with and understand as a driver including your own company, the shippers and receivers, and the DOT. Now I'm telling you, you've come to the right place.

No matter which of these entities you talk with you're going to get nothing but propaganda and/or recruiting. You need The Truth about these entities...what are their agendas, what are they really offering me, how will I be treated once I get hired, when can I expect for home time, etc. I'm going to cover all of that and a whole lot more.

I'm also going to provide you with tons of hints, tips, tricks, and my own personal stories about dealing with each entity and how to make the system work for you. Once you understand these entities and the systems they use you will be in a much better position to make things work in your favor instead of beating your head against the wall by saying the wrong things to the wrong people or having false expectations.

Ok, let's get started with your journey by telling you about mine!

About Us

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
