Air brakes test....ugh

The 2 biggest mistakes I saw at school were turning the truck off, then forgetting to turn the key back on, and forgetting to press and hold the break peddle for 1 min. Just go slow and you'll be fine.

Going to Midwest Co/Dairy

Congrats!

We had another driver a while back who started out at a dairy driving a tanker full of "angry milk" as he called it.

Didn't know companies hired recent grads for tanker gigs. How'd you pull that off?

I think the fact that I live only 5 miles from their offices helped. I've studied a lot about the sloshing effect as you make turns, accelerate and stop. Angry fits that effect, lol. The company also has a school, and is very accomadating as far as the learning curve is concerned. Safety is #1 to them and they'll work with me as long as it takes. They have 50 drivers and 1 on 1 is important to them.

A new career in trucking.

Anything is possible. A lot of places will take ppl with some issues on a case by case basis, so call around and talk with some recruiters. They should be able to answer any Qs you have. Good luck.

Have my driving test next Tues and if all goes well I'll be hauling milk! I'm really fascinated with tankers and can't believe I have a chance to drive one right outta school. I've read on here how they're a different animal as far as timing and shifting, and am looking forward to the challenge. I'll keep y'all posted as I go along.
