Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "You get a ton of experience driving around Colorado" Nov 2016

Francisco F. - 4 years of experience with 100,000 miles

GOOD

You get a ton of experience driving around Colorado. Highways, city streets, neighborhoods, driving incline and declines in the mountains, blizzards, rain storms and floods.

BAD

Initially, it will be driving in a blizzard on I-70 through the mountains or driving along truck trailer. You always have to be careful civilians some just don't care.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Get into the oil field. That's where you will get a ton of experience versus driving box truck throughout Colorado.

2 | "Driving is the best here" Nov 2016

Dennis S. - 3 years driving experience

GOOD

It's just beautiful out here in Colorado, driving is one if the best Jobs for me!

BAD

Snow can be a headache and traffic

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Make it fun

3 | "Gorgeous state" Nov 2016

Scott D. - 5 years of experience and 500,000 miles

GOOD

1. Windshield time is very relaxing, long stretches of highway with beautiful views. 2. All types of truck work is available for all types of truckers. 3. Many of the main thoroughfares are well maintained.

BAD

Denver traffic is heavy and getting heavier by the month get an express toll and pre-pass if you can. There are allot of restricted routes (depending on your cargo/product) and state patrol is not very lenient about off route violations.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Tri-state is a great way to start i.e. UT, WY, CO, or OK, TX, CO. You get through the house frequently and you get the feel of longer hauls. Understand the fatigue that accompanies night driving and use your breaks for a quick nap.

4 | "Beautiful and wide open spaces" Nov 2016

Alvin K. - 40 years driving experience, 3,000,000 miles

GOOD

Once out of Denver, the beauty and wide open spaces of Colorado

BAD

The traffic; plan your driving if at all possible /before the morning rush hours!

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

You will always have a job, but know that you will be capped at a certain rate -unless you find a quality employer that is willing to pay more for your years of safe driving.
