Feedback and insight from a female truck driver

by Kelly
(California )

Hello my name is Kelly, I am thinking about getting into long distance driving. I have read and gave it a ton of consideration but I can’t find anything on how female drivers who drive alone feel about the career choice.


I am pretty small only 5 feet 2 with shoes is being on the petite side a problem.

This is a thought of concern for my family and I just want to give them a honest prospective from another woman.

should I ? NEW

Hi there. What is the reason you are thinking about becoming a driver ? A few things you need to think about. ... long days, everyday. 600 mi/ per day driving will wear on you. Cant always get a shower daily. Noisy truck stops makes it hard to sleep. You drive all day and then you get to climb in the sleeper and sleep in it. 24 hrs/day in your truck. Driving in strange cities looking for an delivery address. Constantly being told what to do by dispatchers, shippers, even $10 hr security guards ! Luck to ya. My advice, just go for it. You can always return home and work back at the office if it doesn't work out. Jimmy
