You’ll learn the skills and knowledge you need to pass your CDL test throughout truck driving school near Portland, but you won’t necessarily develop your personal routine until you start your first trucking job. When you take a rest at a truck stop, you should always make sure you’re set to go before you get back on the road. Watch this video on what to do before leaving the truck stop.
You’re up and awake and you’ve got your coffee, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ready to hit the road again quite yet. Make sure you have your logbook handy and updated, and keep everything you’ll need during your trip within reaching distance.
