    Be paranoid of other drivers no matter what they are driving. Be paranoid of making stupid mistakes.

    Make sure your first company is going to give you the practical experience for the type of job you want to specialize in.

    Think, Plan, Think.
    Don't let anyone rush you. Mistakes happen when you are rushing and just take your time. Ask yourself, "does this make sense" before getting yourself into a situation that can't have but a terrible outcome.
    Plan your route and check the MC atlas for low clearances. Use Google Earth to check the route into and out of pickups and deliveries.
    Good Luck and start the New Year right.
     
    Lonesome Thanks this.

    Congratulations. Only go as fast as you can think. Nobody in abhurry behind you will pay a fine, give you a job, or confess to the cops when you wreck trying to please them. It's tempting when looking for a customer address to go as fast as the cars behind you and drive past the driveway. The people behind you can pass you or wait while you do your job.
     
    Powder Joints Thanks this.
