“Safar bhi roz ka hai
  Aur jaana bhi kahin nahi”-


This is how a trucker goes on his way day and night covering thousands of miles of his journey.This is also an adventurous job for the people those who love driving but a tiring one as well.You have to be on the road for most of the time of your year..sometimes it may include festivals as well.
You have to eat , sleep and manage all other stuffs on the road throughout your journey.

No one wants to be a trucker unless circumstances make him do so.But once he is into trucking stuff , he just don’t cares about what problems are about to come and he just moves on with the loads he has to deliver across two places , to earn a living for himself and his family .

Be Careful While Driving

Due to increasing road traffic , many accidents happen each day across the globe . So , a trucker needs to be quite attentive while driving as fast travelling highways are full of risks and even a small deviation from attention can turn catastrophic for him and other people on the road . He must be knowing all the traffic rules and the meaning of all sort of those white , yellow stripped lines etc. otherwise he could get into trouble . The poor trucker may also get fined for this and to the worse , he may lose his life .

Payment Methods

The wages of different truckers differ in the manner they are paid depending upon the sort of category they fall in . While most of the truckers are paid on the basis of number of miles covered by them , few of them are paid on the basis of number of hours they are driving it.
Delivery truck drivers are paid only when they are delivering . On an average , a trucker covers around 125,000 miles per annum . This looks really tiring but he has to do that to feed himself and his family .

But not all of them suffer that much . There are many perks that come with a truck driver’s schedule , not the least of which is a unique view of the country , as well as camaraderie among your peers . You’ll mostly get to drive modern trucks with comfortable , ergonomically designed seats to help you stay alert and focused . This is just as well , because most of your working days are spent in an 8′ x 8′ space , but that shouldn’t confine your imagination or ambition .

Learning Trucking

Now talking about learning to drive a truck is not easy indeed . Learning to control the truck and trailer that he or she will be operating may be one of the biggest physical challenges of the job . Training for a commercial driver’s license , or a CDL , takes just a month or more of courses and workshops . One great thing about the CDL training is that it is much easier than other trade schools and college courses . With a CDL, first year drivers can start driving after a few months and make a full time income similar to that of those who exit college . Though a CDL is considerably less expensive to obtain and in much less time, there is still a learning curve that comes along with being a long haul driver . Driving for eight to ten hours a day will be much more demanding than training for a CDL . The adjustment period of being on the road alone for the majority of the day or night will require determination and a love of the job . Setting up a proper daily work schedule according to his or her current load , with rests and work breaks, will aid first year drivers in making the change to an OTR driver far less challenging .

Concluding , every person has his own story and so does a truck driver.
He travels along miles and miles , away from his family , listening songs that acts as a part of entertainment to his long tiring work and enjoys his life to the fullest……!!
