Our Military Program Advantages

Driver Compensation
Drivers will be compensated $600 a week during the 8-week training and will earn between $.43 to $.46 cents per practical mile for our national divisions after being released from the road training program.

Experienced Trainers
We offer a one on one, hands-on training program that allows the trainer to be with you at all times to answer any questions you may have. All of our trainers have at least two years experience meaning they have the industry knowledge to help you be successful.

No Team Driving
Our specialized training program does not allow for 24 hour team driving. We believe that our trainees deserve hands-on supervised training in order to get the necessary training need to be a professional truck driver.
