To see a truck in your dream, implies that you are overworked. You may be taking on too many tasks and responsibilities and are weighing you down.

A truck is a wheeled vehicle for transporting goods.
The term is most commonly used in American English and Australian English to refer to what earlier was called a motor truck, and in British English is often called a lorry or, for bigger vehicles, a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV). This type of truck is a motor vehicle designed to carry goods, with a cab and a tray or compartment for carrying goods.

In Australia and New Zealand a small truck with an open tray is called a "ute" (utility vehicle).

"Pantechnicon" is a British word for a furniture removal van that has now fallen out of usage. It was originally coined in 1830 as the name of craft shop or bazaar, in Motcomb Street in Belgravia, London. The shop soon closed down and the building was turned into furniture warehouse, but the name was kept. Vehicles transporting furniture to and from the building, known as pantechnicon vans, soon came to be known simply as pantechnicons.

The biggest ever truck is the Leibherr T 282B.

For larger vehicles, see semi-trailer trucks.

For smaller vehicles, see pickup trucks.

See also forklift, Scania AB, list of truck types.

A hand truck is a small human powered truck. It consists of a metal plate attached to metal tubing and two large wheels. The metal tubing is bent to form a long handle, so as to provide good mechanical advantage. The metal plate is slipped under large heavy objects, and the truck and object are tilted backward until the weight is balanced over the large wheels, making otherwise bulky and heavy objects easy to move.
A railroad truck is a movable platform on pairs of wheels which supports one end of a railroad car; it is also called a bogie. The term is also used for such a part on a skateboard.

Truck is also a (now little used) term meaning to barter or negotiate exchange; it survives in such expressions as "truck farming" and to have no truck with someone.

Driving involves controlling a vehicle, usually a motor vehicle such as a truck, bus, motorcycle, or car (for bicycles and mounted animals and, at least in the U. K. and U. S., motorcycles, the corresponding activity is called riding).
Driving consists of knowing how to operate the mechanisms which control the speed and direction (which in technical terminology are both components of the velocity), and the braking of the vehicle, but especially how to do so safely.

The skill of safe driving is necessary to avoid collisions, which kill many thousands of people annually. Safe driving is much more than following the rules of the road. It goes beyond that into the cultivation of good habits, maintaining attention, and a thoughtful, cooperative attitude that avoids and prevents accidents: defensive driving.

In most countries, driving is an activity which is heavily governed by law. Laws cover the construction and use of vehicles, the rules of the road, the requirements for driver and vehicle licensing, vehicle taxation, safety inspections and compulsory insurance. These laws reflect the high degree of responsibility which is conferred upon drivers (and also on manufacturers) of vehicles to make them as safe in practice as they feasibly can be. Drivers are almost universally required to take lessons with an approved instructor and pass a driving test before being granted a license. The trend has been towards increasingly tougher tests in the last three decades. In addition, new drivers may have additional restrictions in some countries - for example in Australia, novice drivers are required to carry 'P' (probationary) plates and have lower speed limits, alcohol limits, and other restrictions imposed for two years following a successful driving test. Driving laws are usually enforced by the police, and a large part of the modern force is dedicated to driving law enforcement. Many countries have separate authorities with powers to enforce driving laws - for example the Australian Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) which is responsible for driver licensing but also highway maintenance and highway patrol, etc.

Rail transportIn rail transport steering is done by controlling the switch points; this can be done:

To dream that you are in school, signifies feelings of inadequacy and childhood insecurities that have never been resolved. It may relate to anxieties about performance and abilities.

Alternatively, a dream that takes place in school may be a metaphor for the lessons that you are learning from your waking life. *Please see also Teacher.

This article is about educational institutions. For other uses of the term school, see School (disambiguation).
A school is any place designated for learning. The range of institutions covered by the term varies from country to country.

In the United Kingdom, the term school refers primarily to pre-university institutions, and these can for the most part be divided into primary schools (sometimes further divided into infant school and junior school) and secondary schools. School performance is monitored by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education.

In North America, the term school refers to any institute of education, at any level, and covers all of the following: preschool (for toddlers), kindergarten, elementary school, middle school (also called intermediate school or junior high school, depending on specific age groups and geographic region), high school, college, university, and graduate school. In the US, school performance through high school is monitored by each state's Department of Education.

The King's School, in Canterbury in the south east of England, may be the oldest surviving school in the world. It is founded in 597 AD.

In parts of Europe, a Gymnasium is a school of secondary education. In Germany, after thirteen (in some states twelve) grades, the Gymnasium finishes with the Abitur (Matura in Austria and Switzerland).
