GET PAID WHILE YOU TRAIN WITH YOUR CDL
You’ve made the decision to become a truck driver, but now what? Our Class A CDL training program gives you real-world experience and prepares you for anything that could happen on the road. Our Prime Training Program offers new classes that start every week, and it’s never too late to find your calling.
Start your career as an Over the Road (OTR) truck driver here. Those who become a company driver for Prime are eligible for a number of benefits, including health insurance, a 401(k) and paid vacation.
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.
Once your training is finished, you’ll return to a Prime training center to take your state CDL exam. Those who pass on their first try will receive a $250 bonus.
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).
Before heading to orientation for the Prime Training Program, you will need to obtain your Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). Our training program will help you earn your Class A CDL, but first, you will need to obtain your permit on your own in your home state. Check out our Permit Prep page to learn more about this process as well as study information to prepare you for your permit test.
