Trainers Test More Than Driving Skills
This is a great guest post from Brett Aquila's TruckingTruth blog about going out on the road with a trainer including what to expect and look out for. We think it is "must read" for any new driver.
"Not all trainers are created equal. There are some really good ones out there and there are some that, frankly, we’d be better off without. But you’re being tested out there every day in a number of different ways, many of which you may not even be aware of."
"Just like most careers you get into you’ve got to pay some dues to get where you want to be. It’s no different in the trucking industry. Sometimes we just take what life throws at us so we can get to the next step in the process. Even if your time with a trainer seems like a bad dream, don’t give up – even bad dreams eventually come to an end."
However, this story has a surprising ending and is a perfect example of something that might very well happen to you. Read the entire story here: http://www.truckingtruth.com/trucking_blogs/oldschool/2013/05/your-trainer-will-test-you-on-far-more-than-just-your-driving-skills
