Help! I’m the worst in my class at the reverse lane change!

Don't worry that you're falling behind, don't compare yourself to others all the time. The parallel is very similar to the offset. Keep trying to master the offset, once you get that down you might be surprised how much easier this gets.

Central tech Training

Central Tech grad here, wishing you luck! You are set up for success. Great equipment, instructors, facility, and the nicest road course / skills area in the business. Just finished my first year behind the wheel, and credit much of my success to Central Tech and Trucking Truth!

The joys of slip seating

I took this same situation as an opportunity. 15 drivers assigned to trucks, longest tenure gets first choice. I'm the new guy stuck with the oldest truck. On days when newer drivers aren't working I can drive their truck. I started washing and cleaning the truck I drove each day. Now I've got drivers asking me to drive their truck while they are off.

Started driving almost a year ago, fresh out of CDL school. Like you I deliver around my state to several stops and am home every night. Semi-Trucks ranging from Volvos to Internationals, mostly 53 foot trailers. I really enjoy reading your other thread as we face a lot of the same challenges.
