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.
Short on experience? With as little as 1 month of verifiable tractor-trailer experience in the past year, or 6 months of verifiable tractor-trailer experience in the past 5 years, this program will provide you with 1 - 3 weeks of paid training at $1,000/week. After successful completion of the course, drivers will earn a competitive mileage pay.
Our dedicated/supply chain driver training program will take students who have graduated from one of our approved truck driving schools in the previous 180 days. Students will also earn a $4,800 tuition assistance bonus, payable after completing orientation at a rate of $150/month for the first 12 months and $250 for months 13-24.
If you have less than 6 months' solo driving experience OR have been outside of the truck for a while, we have a paid training program tailored for each level of experience. This program will provide you with up to 5 weeks of paid training at $800-$1,000 per week (depending on position) while training.
Dedicated/supply chain driver pay is account-dependent. Please see each specific position to view pay and other details.
If the hazmat endorsement is required, you must apply for it within 30 days of completing training (Averitt will reimburse cost upon receipt).
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. This unique training allows drivers to learn as a team, develop trust and, even more important, learn self-confidence.
Driving for the same customers certainly has its benefits. With our dedicated student driver training program, you can be in the driver's seat before you know it. Download this document to learn more about our dedicated student driver training program.
