What our Customers Say

Start Now with Entry Level Drivers

Get in touch with our team to find the best driver for your business.

Get Started


Filling over the road (OTR) and regional jobs with more seasoned drivers can be a very difficult and expensive task. 

Our entry-level drivers, including our Troops into Transportation program graduates, are more open to OTR and regional jobs as they learn the ropes and build their careers. 

By working with these drivers, not only can you save time and money by filling your seats faster – but you can also increase driver retention. Drivers from our schools boast a 35% higher retention rate than their more seasoned peers. 

Get Started


The Entry Level Driver program at TransForce includes recent CDL graduates from over 100 schools across the country. 

Of those 100 schools, TransForce owns and operates 8 CDL schools on military bases. Through these schools, we help military veterans transition into civilian life by obtaining CDLs and enabling them to work for motor carriers nationwide.

You have driver needs, and we have drivers coming out of school that are ready to work.

We help your business onboard the drivers by deploying a Finishing School Blueprint – which we customize to your specific operations.

Using the Blueprint, we work with you and your insurance company to ensure competitive rates for your new drivers.

You can choose to work with our recent graduates in different capacities. You can:

  • Have TransForce employ the drivers (on our W2), allowing you to worry about nothing more than dispatch.
  • Employ the drivers directly (on your W2), advertising your business on our campuses.

As TransForce drivers, we cover the drivers’ worker’s comp, benefits, and paid time off.

We also offer competitive benefits and retention programs to keep our drivers employed. 

If things work well for you and your driver, you can bring them on your payroll as your employee after a specified number of hours, and if the driver wants that, too.


Pricing for entry-level drivers is dependent on whether you will employ the driver directly or if TransForce will. 

Connect with our team today to explore which pricing model works best for you.

You absolutely can choose to only work with military veterans from our schools.

Due to the high demand, there is an additional fee to work exclusively with military veterans. 

Not necessarily. A comprehensive driver finishing program is the smoothest way to put motor carriers, new drivers and insurance companies at ease. While some motor carriers are building these finishing programs in-house, others are seeking partner companies to implement them. Customers who leverage TransForce’s new-hire finishing school are typically able to insure new drivers at rates comparable to their more seasoned peers.
