A bit overwhelming

Thank you all for the words of encouragement. At the school I'm attending the classroom is the truck. It's one on one the instructor and myself which is kind of nice. I've driven around learning how to shift, right turns, left turns, straight line and offset backing. At the moment I'm studying pre trip inspection and brake system inspection, while at home and not in the truck. Again, thanks guys

A bit overwhelming

Hey all, I've completed my 3rd class in the truck and I have to say I'm a bit overwhelmed. I'm sure you're all going to tell me this is normal, but jeez is there's a lot to remember, my head is spinning, I'm hoping this will get better. I'm attending a cdl school while working full time as a finish carpenter. Any words of encouragement or advice as I continue this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all for taking the time to read this.

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

I am a finish carpenter at the moment and have been for the past 13 years. I just finished my 3rd driving class today. I'm hoping this will be a good change for me. Carpentry has been a good job especially when I was younger, but now at 43 years old the abuse on my body is starting to catch up with me. Hoping this all works out for me

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.
