Below is a detailed explanation of each step in the Driver Solutions Process.
Step 1 – Review Truck Driving Job Opportunities & Apply Online
In order to take advantage of the Driver Solutions company paid CDL training program, you’ll first need to review the truck driving job opportunities as well as the general trucking career information in the Trucking Career Guide portion of this website. Our goal is to educate you about what a great career a truck driving job is and help you make the right career decision. No previous truck driving experience is necessary.
The Online Application Process
The company paid truck driving school program is based upon Driver Solutions first matching you with the right trucking company and the right job. Although a job of driving a truck is pretty much the same from company to company, trucking companies have specific geographical hiring areas or may offer regional or dedicated routes. Driver Solutions will take into account where you live and other personal needs or qualifications. The first step begins with the Online Driver Application. In order to determine your qualifications and the best job opportunity, you need to complete the Online Driver Application.
Step 2 – Speak With Your Driver Agent
After you submit the completed application, it will be reviewed by your personal Driver Agent and log in to your personal Driver Account website. The Driver Agent’s role is to make recommendations regarding the best opportunity, qualify your driver application, answer any questions and make all arrangements for the CDL training. Your personal Driver Account is a special website that contains all the important information you want to know about CDL training and the truck driving job.
Step 3 – Choose A Driver Solutions Network Trucking Company
Our focus is making sure you have the right truck driver job opportunity before you begin training. What good is a CDL license if you can't make money with it? With more than 18 years in the truck driver training industry, Driver Solutions is the authority on company paid CDL training programs. We've developed a network with some of the industry's premier trucking companies. We will help find the company offering the truck driving job that is the right fit for you. In fact, the trucking company that hires you will sponsor your truck driver training and cover your upfront training tuition costs. These truck driver job openings are for company drivers driving a company-owned & maintained truck. The trucking company will be responsible for all expenses related to the truck like fuel, tolls, maintenance, etc.
Step 4 – Qualifying Your Driver Application
Your Driver Agent will begin a background check (required by the Department of Transportation) which includes a review of your driving record (also known as a motor vehicle report or MVR); a criminal report and verification of your work history. To see the basic application qualifications, please review the Driver Qualifications.
Step 5 – Attend The Company-Paid Truck Driving School
Once your application has been qualified by your Driver Agent, you will be scheduled for the CDL training at an approved truck driver training school within the Driver Solutions Network. The CDL training is typically a 3 week program that includes classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction on how to drive a tractor trailer. In order to obtain your CDL license, you will take the required CDL skills test to assess your driving skills at the end of the CDL training program.
Step 6 – Begin Your Truck Driving Job
After you successfully complete the CDL training program, you will report to the trucking company that sponsored the truck driver training school. Your truck driving job will begin with over-the-road (OTR) training, which is paid on-the-job training with an experienced driver. The goal of the OTR training is to hone your driving skills in a real world environment. Once you complete the OTR training, you will become a "first seat" driver.
