If you’re not using the CDLLife App, here’s what you missed this week.
What do drivers do when they have free time while waiting to load, unload, or on their 34? Chances are, they’re on the CDLLife App!
With all the sitting and waiting drivers have to do, finding an outlet for community and entertainment can be a great escape from reality. It’s not all fun and games on the app, though, it’s also a great resource for drivers, a place to ask for advice, get the heads up on road delays, read truck stop reviews, find parking, get weather updates and much more.
When you’re planning your route, you probably want to check out whether or not a place you’re planning to stop has good food, ample parking, clean facilities. The CDLLife allow users to review places they stop, and we share those reviews with app users!
Favorite Posts This Week
This week has been all about the view from the driver’s seat, good food, support and advice, and furry co-drivers.
While the CDLLife App is a great resource to find out about prospective companies, get advice on issues with your truck, etc., it’s also a great place to escape the daily grind and just be a part of a close-knit community.
More Meet Ups!
Each week, drivers in the app are meeting up, grabbing a coffee or a meal or just hanging out to chat. The community the CDLLife App offers goes far beyond your phone.
To join in on the fun, you’ll have to download the CDLLife app .
