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.”
