Common Mistakes Rookie Truck Drivers Should Avoid

At TruckingTruth we've watched countless new drivers make a mess of their careers before they ever even got off the ground. It's heartbreaking, especially when we can see these people would've gone on to have a great career and really enjoy driving for a living. There are certain common mistakes that rookies make, and Rainy (Kearsey) does a great job of laying them out and helping you understand how to avoid them.

Listen closely! These things are often the difference between a successful career that can change your life or a bus ticket home to nothing.
