Tuition Covered By DTI
DTI will pay for your truck driving school so you can obtain your permit and your Class A CDL. Plus, you’ll be able to continue working in the warehouse while you go to school—meaning you won’t have to worry about being unemployed.
Best-in-Class Paid Training Program
Once you have obtained your Class A CDL, you will go through six to 10 weeks of DTI training and orientation. Part of your training will be spent in a classroom and some will be spent on the road with a Dot driver trainer. You will be paid $750 per week of training and all meals will be provided.
A Job & Schedule To Fits Your Lifestyle
Fit your life into your work—not the other way around. At DTI, we offer a variety of driver job types and schedule options to our drivers. That means you can find a job that fits your lifestyle.
If You’re Under 21 & Can’t Get Your CDL Yet
The Warehouse to Driver Program is a great option for you if you’re under the age of 21, since you wouldn’t be able to drive across state lines even if you had your CDL. While you wait for your 21st birthday, work in the Dot warehouse where you can make great money, learn the ins and outs of Dot’s business, and then have your driving school tuition paid for by Dot.

Before You Commit, Consider This:
Time Away From Home
Being a professional truck driver often means you spend multiple nights per week on the road, away from home.
While we work hard to keep our drivers on a consistent schedule, sometimes environmental factors get in the way. Start & finish times can vary daily.
Dot drivers are the faces of Dot. You will be representing our brand with shippers, receivers, other drivers, police, scale masters, pedestrians, and more.
