Brett trying looking up Trucker Steve on YOUTUBE. His "production" company is Whitelinefilms. Thee is a lot of comedy relief on his channel but also some very serious vids there also like this one...Drivers Sacrifice.

Or if you want a site with more driver videos than you can shake a stick at then try Here. YTTrucking has collected all the trucking videos and drivers that make videos of their life on the road or most of them on one site and you will just have to surf through them drivers for the ones you want.

I would watch videos over anything else. I'm a visual person. Reading is just words to me but seeing something done makes things clear. Glad hands for example. I know what they are because of the cdl training cours but I would be far more comfortable in my understanding if I saw them in use. Pre trip is the biggest grey are and very intimidating. A good video showng you the parts and explaining what you are looking for would make way more sense than just reading a list of what to do. I also really like the vlog stuff. I like to see truckers on the road and what theh encounter on random trips. Seeing them do what I'm planning on doing shows me othat I can do it and what I'm in for. Even if its them getting mad or complaining I can see the not so glamorous part and prepare for things like ignorant 4wheelers or getting held up at a shipper.

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Hey Brett,

The following YouTube users have some good videos, in my humble opinion:

Thanks for the great feedback! I was hoping for a few ideas but got a ton of em - nice!!! I'll definitely go through all of them and see if I can find anything worthy of our site. But I'm seriously considering making some of my own - especially on topics where the visual part of it would be helpful as Britton has mentioned.
