12 Steps of Professionalism

A professional driver is more than someone who can just drive a big rig down the highway, there are regulations, hours of service and more to worry about. That’s not to mention the the load your carrying etc. Below are my 12 steps to being a professional driver. These are not in the order of importance, but there is a reason for outlining them this way, see if you can find out why:

  1. Patience
  2. Respect
  3. Ownership
  4. Friendly
  5. Equipment
  6. Safety
  7. Strategic
  8. Integrity
  9. Orderly
  10. Negotiable
  11. Accountable
  12. Licensed

I’ll go into the specific steps in future posts, but if you are professional driver see how many of these steps you need to improve on to make you the true professional that you are.
