What skills do I need to become a tanker truck driver?

To become a successful tank truck driver, you need both hard and soft skills. Earning an N endorsement largely exposes you to most of these much-needed requisite skills. Both sets of skills help you to transport liquid loads safely.

The basic technical skills needed may range from appropriately filling and emptying the tanks, checking for leaks, managing surges, as well as safe turning. Other general trucking and personal skills that will further enhance your tanker driving career include maintaining an excellent driving record, keeping updated and organized logs, exceptional customer service skills, as well as punctuality.

All these skills paint you as a high-quality, responsible, reliable, and safety-oriented truck driver. By acquiring additional endorsements early enough in your trucking career, you are setting yourself up for success. Don't delay that tanker endorsement any longer. Start practicing today through our well-thought-out and structured knowledge practice test.

What I should know about driving tank vehicles

Transporting liquids in tanks needs special skills because of liquid movement and the high center of gravity (COG).

High COG means much of the liquid's weight is carried high up off the ground. This transfers most of the vehicle's weight toward its top, thus making it easy to rollover. Liquid movement or surge on the other hand affects partially filled tanks. This movement can undesirably affect the vehicle's handling.
