Stevens Transport offers Commercial Driving License (CDL) training to Charlotte, NC through a partnership with Trans Tech. With an excellent reputation and outstanding hands-on training, Trans Tech allows drivers to take advantage of employer-based training while earning their CDL. Graduates of this program can earn up to $50,000 in their first year and $70,000 in their third year.
In addition to classroom learning, Trans Tech offers certified professional trainers who teach new drivers the industry’s best practices and ways to be the safest and best drivers on the road. Students at the Charlotte facility receive the time and attention that is needed for success in the intense four-week course.
We start a new training class at Trans Tech each Monday and classes take place from Monday through Friday.
Drivers receive a total of 165 hours of classroom training time, ending with orientation at Stevens Transport headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Orientation is required, but Stevens provides transportation. Upon completion of orientation, students will become official employees of Stevens Transport and added to the professional driver payroll.
Each new employee will be paired with a mentor and trainer through the over-the-road (OTR) training program, to begin applying classroom knowledge in the real world. During this process, new drivers receive 1-on-1, comprehensive training. Drivers complete 240 hours behind the wheel over a five to six-week period. Individual training consists of driving and navigating all five regions of the U.S., learning to haul time-sensitive and temperature-controlled commodities. During this time, new drivers will earn a weekly salary.
After completion of over the road training, each new driver will be assigned to their own equipment and be paid on a per mile basis. Stevens Transport offers three automatic pay raises within the first year of professional driving, ending with an average annual salary of $50,000. Then, in the third year of driving, drivers earn approximately $70,000. After completing over the road training, drivers can take their career in many directions including:
