The perfect team for your driving career
Choosing the right carrier to help jumpstart your trucking career can be a tough decision. Luckily, CRST is here not only to help you through the process, but to set you up for success. As the nation’s largest Over the Road team carrier we know a thing or two about working together. As a student in our Van Expedited division, you will receive the best training in the business, plus your CDL A license in as little as two weeks. As an industry leader, we give you more miles, more money and the best training in the industry.
Our training program
Given all of the latest regulatory changes in the trucking industry, CRST is committed to training student drivers to operate safe and reliably out on the road. We will teach you how to keep your CDL license clean with proper training because we want you to run safe and legal. Every year, CRST sponsors hundreds of students in getting their CDL A license by working with certified truck driving schools across the country. Driving classes start weekly and traditionally last two weeks. Approval for the program is based on the applicant’s driving, work and criminal history, not credit! There are NO CREDIT CHECKS!
CRST offers great solutions for people interested in a rewarding and exciting career:
- Outstanding, late-model equipment, average truck is 1 ¼ years old
- CRST teams run the longest average miles in the industry (which means more money for you!)
- Industry-leading safety program
- Good pay and great benefits
We help pay for your training
Most driving schools charge $4,000-$6,000. With CRST, we give the option of either 100% sponsored training in an accredited school with the shortest employment commitment in the industry or the option of paying only $2,500 and receiving top quality training, higher wages and a sign on bonus.
On the Road
Once you complete training and receive your CDL A license, you will go out on the road with an experienced driver for 28 days which allows you to gain valuable driving experience. After 28 days, you will be paired with another experienced driver who you will get further training from to help you learn how to truly operate a truck. Our program is different because we get you certified and out on the road faster, which means you will make money much faster than traditional training programs offered by other carriers. What also makes us different is that most companies make you wait 90 days before your benefits kick in, with us, you get benefits within your first 30 days. Plus, once you’re driving for CRST, there will be plenty of incentives to keep you and your family happy.
