  • Trucking Tips for New Drivers
  • After your multi combination driver training, you are probably ready to get out there on the road. However, even if you have completed you multi combination driver training, you still have a few things to learn as you begin your driving career.
  • Tip #1 – Paying Attention to Your Health is Important Many new truckers forget that it is important to pay attention to your health when driving a truck. If you got multi combination or HR license training Brisbane, you know the basics of trucking. However, as you begin your career, it is easy to get out of shape, especially since you spend a lot of time sitting while on the job. Lack of activity, combined with bad eating habits, can lead to weight gain and many chronic diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and even osteoarthritis. Learning to pay attention to your health in the beginning can help you avoid these problems. First, it is important to make sure that you get some exercise while you are trucking. Take some time out of your busy schedule to get active, even if you simply walk or jog around your truck and trailer. Second, you need to stick with a healthy diet if you want to stay healthy out on the road. Even if you don’t learn about eating right when taking multi combination driver training, you must learn to eat right. Bad eating choices can lead to obesity, which increases your risk of many diseases. Eating a healthy diet includes reducing calorie intake, eating a balanced diet and working to avoid processed, high calorie and high fat foods. Eating right not only helps you improve your health, but it can actually save you money too.
  • Tip #2 – Take Measures to Deal with Stress After you begin working once you have your MC truck training, you will quickly find that the job can come with a lot of stress. Stress is part of the job. You cannot avoid it. However, it is essential that you learn how to deal with stress. You can effectively handle stress in many ways. One of the best ways is to exercise, since it helps reduce stress and improve the release of chemicals in the body that improve mood. Deep breathing exercises are also very effective when it comes to reducing stress. Simply breathing for a few minutes from your stomach can help reduce blood pressure and reduce the pressure you feel. Power naps and laughter also can be effective ways to deal with stress.
  • Tip #3 – Avoid Doing Regular Shopping at Truck Stops More than likely, you will spend a lot of time visiting truck stops after you get your multi combination driver training and get out there on the road. However, it is important to avoid doing your regular shopping at a truck stop. Prices are sure to be higher at most truck stops, so your regular shopping should be done somewhere else. Try to plan ahead before you head out on the job, shopping beforehand and buying what you need so you don’t have to pay higher prices at truck stops.
  • Tip #4 – Always Inspect Your Truck More than likely, if you took Heavy Rigid truck license training Brisbane or you got your multi combination driver training in Brisbane, you probably learned to inspect your equipment. Inspecting your truck before you head out on the job is essential. Walk around your vehicle, looking for any problems, such as fluid leaks, excessive wear, cracks or unusual sounds. Inspecting your truck before you leave can save you a lot of trouble down the road. Finding a problem early can avoid serious problems in the future. With a few tips to guide you, you can get out on the road, enjoying a great career in the trucking industry. Before you head out on your first run, keep these important tips in mind for an easier time getting used to the job.
