After a lengthy 540 hr course I tested once and got it done. Tuesday I fly into KC Mo. and start career # 2 with Trans Am. I'm excited and nervous. With all the pro and cons I've heard and read about TA, they were willing to take me on. I am grateful to them and all you TT drivers for all your help and input. Going in with an open mind and willingness to learn. Be safe !!! Mark

Congrats and good luck. I've been driving a few years locally but am considering going otr. I don't have any experience myself but don't let bad reviews scare you, the internet is full of bitter people


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Congratulations! Keep that appreciation and positive attitude when you get there. I promise you'll be in the minority and that'll work in your favor.
