1 | "Returning home at the end of the day is all that matters!!!" Mar 2017

Shannon T. - 10 years of experience

GOOD

Usually throughout Virginia there is some sort of driving job locally, or in town or over the road. And having a CDL With or without endorsements you'll always have a job, driving for someone! Also being able to listen to the radio!

BAD

Finding good Pay with benefits, The time that you spend in traffic,constantly being monitored depends on which company you drive for?

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Always Staying focused at all times ,with following distance is key!!!! And being able to return home at the end of the day is all it matters!!!

2 | "DO NOT TEXT and DRIVE." Feb 2017

Tim C. - 200,000 miles driven

GOOD

Scenery. Our landscape is beautiful. Main highways and secondary routes are mostly good. Our roadside assistance on most major highways are there to help and protect disabled motorist.

BAD

Getting turned around on secondary roads. Slow moving drivers in the fast lanes that will not move over.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Pay attention and DO NOT TEXT and DRIVE. Listen to any advice a veteran driver is willing to share.

3 | "Would strongly recommend getting a dash camera " Feb 2017

Robert M - 32 years on the road

GOOD

I prefer driving at night, there is less traffic and I get home faster

BAD

I-81 there seems to always be a wreck somewhere, can get a little hectic down VA beach way at times

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Invest in a good GPS, I like the Rand McNally. Keep a good road Atlas with you and don't ever give anybody a ride.

4 | "Learn to deal with adversity" Dec 2016

Kent d. - 13 years of driving experience

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

learn to deal with adversity, disappointment of loads, traffic, other drivers and learn to wait patiently at stops, be safe always and don't be in so much of a hurry that you are careless

5 | "Follow all signs" Dec 2016

Jessica A. - 1 year behind the wheel

GOOD
