TIPS FROM EXPERIENCED DRIVERS

A GOOD PRE-TRIP INSPECTION IS KEY.

You will hear this many times in training, but it's important. Not only will you avoid CSA violations, but you guarantee your safety and that of others on the road. We all know that time is important in trucking, but don't be afraid to take your time doing a thorough pre-trip inspection like you were taught.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD.

Safety first, above all. Don't let yourself be distracted by screens or sightseeing on the road. Trucking is a great way to see the country, but remember you have a job to do. Get a good night of sleep and eat right so you can stay focused.

DON'T BE TOO PROUD TO ASK FOR HELP.

CRST is a nationwide team of truckers working together to achieve one goal. Don't be afraid to ask for help if you are unsure of something. Your trainer and your co-driver are there to support you every step of the way and learning is an important part of driving with us.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS REASONS TO LIFE CHANGE WITH CRST. HERE ARE A FEW:

I didn’t know if OTR was right for me.

After talking to dozens of carrier recruiters, CRST Expedited really stood out as a place you could earn great money without having to wait years. Yes, OTR would be a challenge, but I knew I could get some serious miles behind me. Now, I own my truck and if it weren’t for that experience, I’d probably still be carrier hopping.

I had no family and nowhere to go.

I moved to the U.S. in 2015, leaving my home country and all I knew, in search of a better life. Truck driving gave me a purpose; a chance to see my new country and make money. Best of all, I feel like part of the family at CRST and now I have a place to call home.

I always wanted to travel the country with my brother.

My brother Tom and I were working in the service industry with no time to take a real vacation. I told him I was considering being a truck driver and found out CRST has a company-sponsored training program. When we both finished, we asked to be teamed up. Now we’re traveling the country. Best move ever.

After graduating high school, I knew college wasn’t for me.

I’d heard so many horror stories about going into debt over tuition and I certainly didn’t have the money to pay for it myself. The decision to join CRST was one of the best I ever made. My first year really catapulted my driving career and now I mentor the next generation of drivers.
