Does Prime offer CDL Training?
We offer the Prime Student Driver Program to help you earn your Class A CDL. It only costs $155 to start, and you pay nothing more as long as you drive for Prime with your CDL for one year! It is an over-the-road training program that starts with a 4-day orientation in Springfield, MO or Salt Lake City, UT.
We cover your bus ticket to get to orientation as well as 3 meals per day and hotel stay during orientation. After orientation, you train with a CDL Instructor for 2-4 weeks with your permit. Then, you come back to take the CDL Exam.
Once you earn your CDL, you'll start getting paid $700 per week as long as you are available to drive during the 2nd phase of training (takes about 2 months).
Incentives & Rewards
Prime has many programs that reward hard work and dedication to service and safety! Select contractors from each of our driving divisions are chosen monthly to receive our "Contractor of the Month" award, and Prime's "Millionaire Program" rewards our drivers for continuing accident-free service. In addition, we offer a wide range of incentives designed to promote safety, on-time service, fuel consumption, tractor maintenance, and training.

What is "Prime Fuel Guard"?
Prime Fuel Guard is Prime's Fuel Surcharge Program which has been designed to keep fuel costs under control even when fuel prices increase. Fuel surcharge is based on Prime’s fuel cost minus $.99 divided by 7 mpg to come up with the weekly amount paid in fuel surcharge. The fuel surcharge is paid for all authorized dispatch miles. Don't let the high cost of fuel keep you off the road. Partner with Prime and keep your fuel costs down!
Let Prime Be Your Last Change

What About The Equipment At Prime Inc.?
Prime offers late-model equipment to our fleet including Freightliner, Peterbilt, and International truck models. All trucks offered at this time are 2015 models and newer and come standard with auxiliary power units (APU) and 1500-watt inverters. All trucks are equipped with technology which helps Prime drivers maintain safety and efficiency out on the road.
We have our own tractor trailer washes, such as the Triple Crown Truck Wash and Savannah Kleen. We use the latest technology. We are installing Omnitracs MCP200's which include in-cab scanning, Internet Explorer when within WIFI range, and many other cutting edge features. We offer updates through your cellphone using text messaging. We have a large fuel network with fuel and route planning software available through the Omitracs unit and Prime Mobile App.
What About Home Time?
Prime offers over-the-road, regional, and dedicated opportunities across the United States. The majority of our fleet is comprised of over-the-road drivers who are typically out for 3-4 weeks at a time. Company drivers earn one day of home time for every week they are out on the road. Lease operators or independent contractors determine their own home time, and the longer they stay out on the road, generally the more money they are able to make. The most profitable remain out three to four weeks at a time. Some go home more often depending on where they live.
Both company drivers and independent contractors at Prime can take their truck home as long as they have a safe and legal place to park their truck. Prime hires nationwide in almost every state. To see if you live within Prime's hiring area, give our Recruiting Department a call at 877-774-6356.
