I have my CDL and now am trying to get a job and further training to be a professional driver. In driving school I only got 120 hours of actual driving. I need much more. I have difficulty with shifting the gears. When I try to do a road test I seem to freeze and fail. I just need to be tutored and coached more and I can’t seem to find anyone that will do this. All the trucking companies only want to make money, of course, but they really aren’t interested in the training part although that is what they advertise. If anyone knows where I can get practice driving a tractor trailer rig I would be very greatful. I love driving a truck. I think I would be very good at it after I get more practice. 8 months ago

How I did it: I knew I always wanted to learn how to drive a semi tractor and trailor.I have been around trucks most of my life.
I went a bought air book manuals to study,once I recieved that,I studies hard,wrote the test,passed first time.Than after than it was time to get my class 1A.It was harder than I thought.No company was willing to teach me the ropes how to drive,so I took out a bank loan,went to trucking school learned that way.If you want to call it learned.It was enough to get me my class1A.Went through alot of BS to get experience.Once I recieved my experience I was on my way.I have been working with the same company I started with year and half ago.Great company,with benifits.I do have to say this much,if you really want to learn how to drive a semi up and down the highway,you will put up with BS for a short whlie,everyone goes through this.But don`t let those small Aholes discourage you from continuing on.If you really want to learn...you will......I did :)
Good luck to all you soon to be drives out there,and new drivers we see everyday...White_magic Read how I did it… 5 years ago
