Too many people quit soon after getting started in truck driving - in large part because they expect much more pay then they get when just starting out. Over time pay does go up and it is possible to earn a very good living as a professional truck driver - if you know what you are doing and after you gain some experience.
But the usual expectation do not often match the hard reality of what awaits most unsuspecting new drivers.
When you combine this harsh reality with the other stresses of getting started in trucking - for many it is too much so they quit.
If the shock of much lower than expected pay doesn't do them in then the failure to get home as much as they were counting on usually finishes them off.
The end result is the same - they quit.
It doesn't have to be like that for you!
Learn what you need to know before you start your new adventure in trucking and greatly improve your chances of success!
