City Traffic

Hello everyone, I've been researching being an OTR truck driver, but to be honest I'm worried about city driving. I've lived in a small town all my adult life. I am a great driver on the highways, but I've never driven much in the city, it hasn't been very often that I've needed to. What worries me is being with a trailer in the major cities in heavy traffic, where all the lanes on each side are full of vehicles, with stop and go traffic, and me needing to change lanes to catch an exit. I know it's possible to do obviously, but i can't imagine being able to make those changes when no one wants to let you in or give you space, trying to picture it makes me anxious. Are there any tips on how to make your lane changes when traffic is packed like that? Is it common to miss exits because you couldn't make the changes in time? I just need some reassurance on how to handle this situation I think before I call recruiters. Thank you!
