    Don't worry about that right now. Concentrate on getting moved, getting your CDL, and looking for a job. No company is going to put a raw greenhorn into a truck and a situation like that. Get some experience at normal driving first.

    If this isn’t a troll post... Every company you’ll work for as a new driver will tell you to shutdown before you do that. General freight stays on interstates and main highways 99% of the time. Closest thing you’ll see to that is Snoqualmie Pass... if the company even lets you chain up and cross it

    They’ll teach you how to handle mountain grades when you get to your first job during training. Most of your learning will be then. CDL licensing school is just the basics of operating
     
    austinmike, aussiejosh and Awara Thank this.
