The Physical Requirements of Truck Driving

If you want to know what to expect if you are considering taking trucker training with the hopes of becoming a truck driver, the first thing to do is to see if you can handle the physical demands.

The reality is that there is some best truck driving jobs in Kansas city that you don't need to load/unload or at least help with. Even companies that advertise "We're not 98% cargo" still have 2% to play with.

In this business, you never know what to expect or what to do with it. When it comes to trucks and cargo, anything can and will likely happen.

I'm not trying to discourage you here, but I just want you to know that you won't find "just encouraging" work. You have to be able to push your tandems if you need to, raise and lower the jacks on the trailers and believe me, some of them can be pretty ugly.

Also, at some point in your career, you may need to lift a fully loaded trailer so you "jump on" the 5th wheel. It hurts, not to mention very uncomfortably. In winter, you may have to throw a chain now and then.

But oftentimes, you can find someone to help you when you are really in a traffic jam. Especially when you look like you need help and aren't lazy. Demonstrating a desire and ability to sustain and meet load demands will take you a long way in the auto industry.
