CDLLife is celebrating its birthday and what a year it’s been! We’re so thankful you’ve been a part of our lives for the past year and we hope that you’ll be with us for many more years to come.
At CDLLife, it is our mission to inform, entertain and empower drivers. We are a small team with big dreams of shining a positive light on the trucking industry. Many on our team have strong ties to the trucking community and aspire to highlight the good works drivers do each and every day that go unrecognized.
Thank you for being a member of our trucking family for the last year– we wouldn’t be here without you!

Video: CDL Life Reviews 2012 MATS
CDL Life participated in the 2012 Mid-America Trucking Show, and we had no idea how big it was. There were nearly 60,000 attendees walking, talking, blogging and eating at the Kentucky Exposition Center.
We met lots of great people who had great products and services, but we also met lots of CDL Life fans, and made some new ones! Our branded merchandise was popular – we gave away more than 140 hats, 200 shirts, 500 keychains and even some snacks!
And we did’t stop there. CDL Life attended 6 truck shows in 2012: MATS, GATS, Walcott: The Iowa 80, Oak Grove I-70, Joplin I-44 and the Truck Driver Social Media Convention.
[box title=”A Year Of Regulations ” color=”#333333″]2011′s Story of the Year – REGULATION
When you talk truck driving, you’re talking a tough job. Truck drivers are always up late, driving early and put to the test, while rarely thanked for their service. So we at CDL Life wonder, like so many others in the transportation industry, why the US government and other state organizations continue to pile on regulations that make the job even harder, disqualify more decent drivers and drive down profits for carriers, while driving up consumer costs.
Here’s a look back at some of the top stories from the year surrounding the mountain of regulatory policies that Washington has been churning out recently. Have another look and let us know what you think.
Thanks again for being a part of our family! Tell us what you want to see more of over the next year.
