Student Trainees

CDL drivers who have 3-12 months of over-the-road experience must go through our driver training program. The training program is 4-6 weeks depending on the drivers capability. This program is actual over-the-road driving with a Witte Bros. driver-trainer performing the normal tasks that will be required as a solo driver. Our first year drivers average $45,000.00 to $55,000.00 per year.

Get paid while you train to be a truck driver.

During this training period drivers receive weekly pay while on the road – up to $525 per week. Successful completion of this program is dependent upon you, the trainee, your over-the-road trainer, and Witte’s Safety Department. All three entities must agree that the trainee is ready for solo dispatch.
