VIDEO: Can an ‘average Joe’ drive a big rig with zero training?


Is it possible to hop in a semi truck and successfully operate it with no formal training or experience? That’s what the guys in this video are looking to find out.

This video was shared by YouTube user A Rural Vermonter on June 24, 2023.

A couple of guys without experience driving trucks are put to the test behind the wheel of 2004 Volvo VNM hauling a 50 foot trailer as part of a $10 wager between friends.

Surprisingly, both of the “average Joes” do an okay — but not perfect job (there is some gear grinding going on) in their first time behind the wheel of a big truck.
