Truck Dream Symbol


Truck – A truck is a dream symbol of transportation, which almost always represents the journey toward your aims, goals, and aspirations. A truck is a fairly optimistic symbol, as it encompasses overtones such as stability and toughness, as well as the ability to drive over obstacles or haul them out of the way, and four-wheel drive to keep you going even if the driving surface is slick or slippery.

Obviously, the chances that you actually dreamed about four-wheel drive are somewhat slim, unless you have been shopping for vehicles recently, but all of these factors of trustworthiness and durability are nevertheless part of the aura and image of the truck. What happens with the truck in your dream is also significant with regards to your feelings about your ability to accomplish your goals.

That is, if you drive fast in the truck, this is a beneficial sign that you are able to pick your direction and go where you want to go in life. If you dream that someone else drives you in a truck, this is an indication of a feeling of dependence on someone else to help you meet your goals or to accomplish your ambitions for you.

If you dream of a truck crashing or breaking down, this is an indication that you do not feel in control of your ability to make your ambitions a reality, and that you do not trust the tools you have at hand, or even your own ability and motivation, to see you through.

  1. I had a dream where I was in a trailer (like a motor home) that was mostly empty (someone had just moved out so dirty and had some trash, empty boxes). My husband and I were in it and I noticed we were moving. I looked and a woman I know who tends to be very controlling was driving. Then I was driving and I couldn’t control it. We were careening down a hill and I crashed into the back of parked SUV’s. But I was alone at that point. The woman and my husband weren’t there. In real life my daughter has recently been in tow accidents, so in my dream I remember thinking my husband was going to be angry that another accident would be added to our insurance and I had better call him.

  2. My son and I have had the same dream at around the same age, at age 5, my son told me today that he had a dream that I put him in his car seat and closed the door and as I was going around the truck it started to roll away. When I was around the same age I remember having almost the same dream reacurring, my mom gets out to talk to someone and the truck rolls away with me in it, what significance is this dream

  3. The significance of the FedEx trucks being trucks in mine did not seem so important. What was most important was the FedEx trucks were speeding on a road I was about to cross. Next came a lot of cars speeding and about to crash. I was told to back away from curb and did. Then, some people kept up the near accidents by pretending some more until they confesed.

  4. In my dream the truck was running. I looked down at it from a birds eye view. I got distracted in the dream and when I went outside to use the truck it was fine. I was in the woods and didn’t feel it was stolen I searched the path to see if it rolled no sign of it. In my dream I said to myself ok I don’t have time for this I will find it later?

    • Dreamed the truck was running fine got out went into store came back out and the truck wouldn’t turn over. Battery acting up. Try again she would stay crank over as long as you held the gas patil. After, reading a few dreams tye owner of this site never responded so I probable wasted my time on this one.

  5. I had a dream that my boyfriend truck started taking off on its own and crashed into a tree and other cats in the parking lot and later into the side of my neighbors apartment building. The whole time I was standing there watching. What does this mean?

  7. I need your thoughts on a dream I had last night. I was some where I think a Gas Station it was night time a really dark night. A big hugh truck was backing up around a gas pump I think, I was trying to move out of the way, but, I moved in the wrong direction. I woke up screaming right before it ran into me. Let me know what you think.

    Thank you. About the truck being in a dream, however is there any meaning about Trucks that are flying in dreams? Because my dream was of a truck(a nice Clean Bright Yellow old like 60s or 70s type of vehicle). Thank you.

    I had a very vivid dream a few nights ago and can stil remember it quite well. I was living in a small house on the same property as my ex, who was living in a large, sleek modern house right next to me with his fiance. On the the night before their wedding i threw a party at the pool and it was mad. All of a sudden, a huge, long, light twinkling truck fell from the night sky and crashed back first into the neighbours garden. A party guest euphorically shouted “it worked it worked” next to me, as if he did it.
    Then it transpired that my exs fiancĂ© had cheated but she didn’t care to have been found out. In the next moment it was the next day and my ex was stood in his bedroom in his wedding suit but the bride never showed. He still wanted to marry her.
    I got the sense throughout the dream that it would never be me anyway.

    As the dream was so vivid and bizzare id like to know what it could mean?
