NEW DRIVERs: we want you!

You are new to driving. You are eager to start your career. You hold a Class 1 MELT (or equivalent license). 

But, where do you learn how to be a professional driver? If you are asking these questions, now is the right time to join our Driving Mentorship Program.


Start your training journey by entering and completing Phase 1. This includes both classroom education and On-the-Road (OTR) training

Phase 1 involves a total of 40-hours, over a 2-week period. 

The first 20-hrs are dedicated to In-Class training. Additional hours are added as needed to ensure that all our employees are confident and comfortable before graduating.

The second 20-hrs are dedicated to On-The-Road (OTR) training, including both In-Cab (in the truck) and In-Yard (yard activities). The mix of classroom and OTR is designed so that students do not experience boredom, but rather experience a variety of learning, engagement and satisfaction. 

2-Week Schedule

One-half of each day is dedicated to In-Class workshops and learning. The second/remaining half of each day is dedicated to OTR training.

Completion & Victory Lap

The Driving School takes 2-weeks to complete, with additional days added if the new driver needs more time for OTR Training. 


This part of the Driver Mentorship Program includes 6-12 months of training, delivering real freight for real clients.

Phase 2 excellent training through a dedicated and specialized strategy, where an experienced driver (mentor) is paired with a less experienced or new driver (mentee), in order to guide the mentee in developing the skills that the mentee requires to perform his/her job adequately. The mentor shares his/her skills, knowledge, best practices and experience with the mentee.
