Qualities of A Good Driver
I’ve been trucking for a long time and I have seen plenty of of drivers from all walks of life–women, men, young and old. From personal experience, I would say the best drivers are the one with a positive attitude that have the right expectations about trucking. With lots of freedom and now with pay going higher than we have seen it before. Good drivers are always highly appreciated by companies and their peers.
Good drivers make the most of life on the road and are happy to have the freedom. The great thing about this line work is the pay. CDL certified drivers or Class A drivers are finding out they are in high demand, this works hand in hand with the liberty and sense of almost being your own boss.
The sense of freedom does not mean you have to be gone for weeks at time. You can still have the freedom of not being stuck in a work space doing the same thing every day. There so many options for drivers now that looking into driving makes lots of sense.
A good quality driver always has options to work local or over the road. Drivers that take care of themselves are always going to have the best options for the best jobs. Some examples are, taking pride in your work, taking care of your personal appearance, being courteous and polite with the best customer service, and most of all take your time make sure that you are safe driver.
Drivers should always take care physically and mentally, like everything life is always better when you take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself will always make you more dependable a big plus, remember its always about marketing yourself to command the highest possible compensation for you and your family.
Taking care of your truck, one of the most important qualities of a good driver is keeping the truck clean and inspecting it daily. The best truck driving schools teach students how to inspect and report anything wrong with the equipment.
