Driver Training Program
Earn while you train
You’ve made the decision to become a truck driver, but now what? Our paid CDL training program gives you real-world experience and prepares you for anything that could happen on the road. New classes start every week, and it’s never too late to find your calling.
HOW IT WORKS
YOUR GUIDE TO DRIVING WITH PRIME
Start your career here. Company drivers are employed through Prime and are eligible for a number of benefits, including health insurance, a 401(k) and paid vacation.
Prime will pay for your transportation to our Springfield, MO; Pittston, PA; or Salt Lake City, UT location to start your orientation. Experience hands-on, computer-based, and simulator training before you get behind the wheel.
Pass your CDL exam
Once your training is finished, you’ll return to your training center to take your state CDL exam. Those who pass on their first try will receive a $250 bonus.
Hit the road
Once your training is completed, you will be eligible for upgrade review. Stay on as a company driver or choose to own your own truck and become an independent contractor. Your options are limitless.
Apply for the program
See if you meet the qualifications and start by applying for our program. A recruiter will reach out to you to confirm your status and help you get started with your training.
Work 1-on-1 with an instructor while you learn how to drive a semi truck. You’ll get practice with the necessary components of your CDL exam along with experience hauling freight.
Complete your final training
After you pass your CDL exam, you’ll continue to train with a trainer for 50,000 miles. Get experience hauling loads across the country while receiving a guaranteed minimum payment of $700 per week (until you reach 40,000 miles) and $800 per week (after 40,000 miles until you upgrade).
