Training for success.

As the nation’s largest team carrier, CRST trains thousands of new drivers every year—and we do it better than anyone else. You can earn your CDL A license through our training facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, or through the independent driver training schools we partner with across the country. Classes start weekly and last two to four weeks. If you are a former truck driver looking to get back on the road, we have training programs for you, too.


Approval for the driving program is based on your driving, work and criminal history—not credit checks. CRST will pay the cost of your tuition in return for an ten-month commitment.

On-the-Job Training

After you graduate from school, you’ll attend a four-day orientation program to prepare for your training on the road. After you complete orientation, you’ll be matched with a CRST Lead Driver and receive on-the-job training.
