About This Quiz

Do you have what it takes to be a trucker? Truckers are the unsung heroes of our modern workforce!  Without their driving skills and their diligence, we would be forced to fend for ourselves rather than going to a store and getting what we need. After you tell us about your desire to run a big rig, your driving skills and how you would handle a few situations on the road, we'll know if you're ready to step into the seat and roll down the highway. 

Not everyone who takes this quiz will be able to become a trucker. Being a trucker is the kind of occupation that consumes your whole life. It's not one of those jobs you can forget after you clock out. The job description might not say it, but having the title of trucker means that you've adopted an entirely different lifestyle. Can you handle the responsibility it requires?

Hitch up your load and try to avoid the smokies as you answer the questions. Once you shift into high gear and find your lane with your responses, we'll let you know if you should pick out your CB handle and start your new career. Are you ready to release the emergency brake and go?
