The drivers of Iowa say

Good

  • Parking. Just about any Iowa town has a grain elevator, or other wide open spaces where people seem happy to let you park during home time, as long as you ask first. Also the Iowa 80 Trucstop is has a bunch of amenities like a gym, pet cleaners, baber shop, and more.
  • Mostly flat land, easy to navigate around the state, truck stop availability
  • Enough jobs jauling corn and soy beans where I don't have to leave the state often.

Bad

  • Winters can be brutal in Iowa, hard on the equipment and nerve racking on slick roads.
  • Back roads can be narrow
  • Winter weather can be hair-raising and dangerous

Tips to New Drivers

  • Behave yourself. Protect your CDL with good common sense. Keep your MVR and CSA clean, and with one year experience, you'll be able to drive for anyone you want.
  • Get as consistent sleep and eating times as possible. Find a good carrier, there are many out there.
  • Be patient and take your time driving in the snow
  • Have patience...everything about trucking IS going to test your patience. If you're a "hot headed" type, don't even bother with this industry---you won't last.
  • Park your car if you feel it's too dangerous to drive

5 comments from Iowa drivers

1 | "Everything about trucking IS going to test your patience" May 2017

Russell R. - 25 years

GOOD

Parking. Just about any Iowa town has a grain elevator, or other wide open spaces where people seem happy to let you park during home time, as long as you ask first.

BAD

Winters can be brutal in Iowa, hard on the equipment and nerve racking on slick roads. Slow down, keep your distance, and park it if it gets too much for you.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Have patience...everything about trucking IS going to test your patience. If you're a "hot headed" type, don't even bother with this industry---you won't last. Behave yourself. Protect your CDL with good common sense. Keep your MVR and CSA clean, and with one year experience, you'll be able to drive for anyone you want.

2 | "Be careful of your sources of information" Apr 2017

Mike S. - 8 years

GOOD

Flat land. Truck stop availability. Easy to navigate.

BAD

Back roads can be narrow.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Try to learn as much as possible. Be careful of your sources of information be it media or other drivers. A lot of bad information out there. Always be on your game. Get as consistent sleep and eating times as possible. If you can't, find another carrier. Don't buy junk food, especially snacks. Then you won't eat it.

3 | "NO LOAD is worth more than human lives." Mar 2017

Rocksand P. - 3 years

GOOD

The people are helpful, polite and generally safe drivers.

BAD

Winter weather can be hair-raising and dangerous but if you can be patient and take your time you'll be fine. Just remember, NO LOAD is worth more than human lives.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

DO YOUR RESEARCH, Have patience and be helpful whenever you can.

4 | "Don't sweat the small stuff" Jan 2017

Dan P. - 3 years

GOOD

Plenty of places to stop safely

BAD

City drivers are clueless

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Just keep smiling and don't sweat the small stuff. Get out early and you won't have problems

5 | "Obey the rules of the road" Dec 2016

Teresa R. - 16 years

GOOD

Independence, no one looking over your shoulder, a chance to see the state

BAD

Other drivers, especially car's as they have no respect for truck drivers

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Obey the rules of the road and be careful
