Training for all drivers
THE “apprenticeship for truck drivers” is floating around a bit lately on the Big Rigs Facebook page. Ian Stanley said he thought it was great for newbies, but what about those who had been around for a while?
“It’s called complacency,” he said. “As a trainer I’ve seen it many times just this week with drivers I’ve been out with. I suggest we don’t just focus on the new drivers, although I agree this is where it starts and it’s important, but everyone can learn if they are willing. As for autos there is much, much more to them than D for dummy and if you are shown how to drive them correctly they are quite intricate in their workings and what can be done with them.”
