Driver Training Programs

Are you ready to get your driving career rolling but don’t fully meet Averitt’s requirements? Look no further - we offer several training programs tailored to your experience level.

Here at Averitt, we take pride in our drivers' safety and want to ensure that you have all the training you need to feel confident and comfortable out on the open road. Our training programs offer on-the-job training with an experienced Averitt driver trainer, where you’ll benefit from the knowledge of your own personal trainer and mentor.

All our training programs are paid training and you’ll enjoy all the benefits of being a full-time Averitt associate.

 

Finishing School

All drivers going through our training programs will also attend our Finishing School during the last week of their training. This is an extensive backing and turning program to ensure you’re well prepared for the road. These programs are conducted at our service centers in Lexington KY, Cookeville TN, Greenville SC, Jackson TN, Little Rock AR, Waco TX and Decatur AL. This unique training allows drivers to learn as a team, develop trust and, even more important, learn self-confidence.
