As important as it is, a CDL is just license and CDL prep is not an education. For over two decades, BUMPERTOBUMPER®, The Complete Guide to Tractor-Trailer Operations, has been considered "a must have guide for truckers" and "one of the best books written about trucks and trucking," "recommended for truck schools or graduates, or the trucker who wants to be well informed." Anyone serious about having a rewarding and enjoyable career as a commercial truck driver realizes that it takes:

  • A commitment to safety
  • A professional attitude
  • Dedication to customer service
  • A thorough understanding of the equipment, regulations and the working environment
  • Respect for self and the employer

in print and on Kindle

All of these contribute to the feeling of self-confidence that enables even the newest driver to handle any challenge with success. Be it equipment failure, a traffic jam or a demanding customer, a well-trained driver with the right attitude knows what to do. A good education equips the new driver to be successful from the first day on the job and for many days and many miles thereafter. Whether the medium is print, audio, video or even a simulator, whether the material is delivered in-residence or by distance learning, the content has to be complete, authoritative, up-to-date and easy and enjoyable for the learner to use.
