Advantages of Hiring Student Drivers

While experienced drivers are often challenging to find and expensive to hire, we recognize the untapped potential and value that student drivers bring to the table.

The advantages of harnessing the potential of student CDL drivers include:

Coach-ability: Student drivers can be developed according to your company standards and culture. They become skilled professionals who align well with your company’s culture and practices. They bring no previous bad habits.

Decrease Turnover: Student drivers are typically more inclined to stay with a company that offers training. Student drivers can be more loyal than experienced drivers who may have switched companies multiple times.

Fill Challenging Roles: Student drivers are often eager to gain experience and are willing to take on positions that are not as desirable to experienced drivers, such as touch-freight, slip seating or OTR.

Grow Your Business: With a steady stream of student drivers, you will not have to wait to scale your business.
