A severe shortage of trained tractor-trailer drivers faces the trucking industry and the nation. The Trucking: Tractor-Trailer Driver Handbook/Workbook and ancillaries can help solve this problem by providing a comprehensive and turn-key curriculum for tractor-trailer trailer training. Written at a 3rd -6th grade reading level for ease of understanding, the Handbook/Workbook, addresses not only the body of knowledge a driver needs to know, but it also teaches the procedures that, with practice, will enable the student to become a skilled driver. This book stresses the importance of developing the traits and behaviors that characterize true professionals, as tractor-trailer drivers are placed in the unique position of being entrusted with expensive equipment and cargo, as well as representing the industry to the public at large. Content also includes good health and safety practices that drivers should follow for success on the job.
