Can Short People Drive Kenworth/Peterbilt long nose trucks? ?

I’m 5’2 and just got my cdl. I mentioned my interest in long nose peterbilt trucks to my instructor.. he said they wouldn’t be a good fit for me because of my height. Do short people really struggle driving those trucks??

    Short people can absolutely drive a long nose Pete or KW. With fully adjustable seats and steering, nearly anyone who can drive a car, and wants to drive one of those, can.

    it's possible. but probably the real reason he said that was because peterbilts are expensive and the trucking companies dont really give a sh*t about you, they're just gonna give you some cheap plastic truck because they are trying to save themselves money. i have never sat in a peterbilt so I don't really know for sure if it's hard to see over the hood.
