The instructors at US Truck Driving School are one of our greatest assets! They are leaders in the field, and are happy to share their knowledge and expertise with students.
Our Meet the Instructor feature posts give current and prospective students the opportunity to learn a little more about each USTDS instructor.
Meet the Instructor, Part 7: Louis Lemon
What is the best part about being an instructor here at USTDS?
After 46 years of driving I very much enjoy passing on what I know. I enjoy getting to meet new students. I meet a lot of interesting people who are now at a point in the lives where they are going after a new career and I like passing on my experience to them. This is a good way for me to continue to experience the trucking industry. And it keeps me around trucks.
What advise would you give to a student?
The best advice I can give is to be neat, be courteous and respectful because you are always meeting new people. Be knowledgeable, this will keep you safe. And always be aware of your surroundings.
When not instructing, how do you like to spend your free time?
Bowling! I am in a bowling league and I very much enjoy doing that. But mostly I enjoy my family. I spend a lot of time with my son. We enjoy attending various events- like car shows, for instance. I also enjoy my granddaughter. I love babysitting her. I’ve enjoyed watching her grow!
