Possibly thinking of getting into trucking as a career. So I'm just lurking for now on here. Originally from North Dakota but living in Virginia at the moment.

Four Traps That New Truck Drivers Fall Into - New Article by Old School

"After you land a job you go out with a trainer. Why? Because you still don't have a clue yet."

This is what I'm looking forward to! Any new person (including myself) would be a complete fool to not take advantage of that knowledge that's sitting there.

I've updated the homepage - looking for opinions

Looks good to me. I'm not sure if the update affects this but I'm doing the High Road Training Program and when "3/4" is suppose to shown it comes up as question mark in a diamond.

Thank you Brett and John. I have no desire to own my truck at such an early point. Y’all take care and enjoy the warm weather!

North Dakota

Hello all!

I've been lurking here for a bit and I have definitely been learning a lot! I've learned stuff that that I never would even imagine to ask as well lol. Currently in the Army and I will be getting that good old honorable discharge in the next couple of months. I'm thinking of getting into the trucking industry after I get out and moving back to North Dakota (hence, my name here lol).

So the question is this.. are there any members on here that employed up there with a company or just mainly O/O's? I've done some searching on here but the closest I can find in regards to my state is the oil field jobs.

Thank you to all and I really appreciate the CDL training tools that y'all have prepared!
