TruckingTruth's Notes So Far

Trucking Truth Logo

Stevens operates more terminal and drop yard locations as compared to most other companies of its size. While they do contract to a couple local driving schools, anybody outside of the Denver or Houston metro areas will attend the Dallas, TX location.

Hiring requirements are about average as compared to the industry. Be up front and honest about your criminal history as they only perform a preliminary background check before arrival. Once you arrive at the Stevens training facility, they will complete a more thorough background check.

Preparing For Stevens Transport CDL School

Stevens Transport Logo
Do I need a US Passport?

While you aren’t required to have a US Passport, you will not be eligible to haul Canadian freight unless you have one. A US Passport may also accelerate background checks and processing procedures.

Which CDL endorsements are required or encouraged?

While not required, you are highly encouraged to obtain a HazMat endorsement.

TruckingTruth's Insights So Far

Trucking Truth Logo

Even though a US Passport and HazMat endorsement are not required, we highly recommend everyone obtain both. In fact, it’s best to obtain all CDL endorsements in case future opportunities require them. It is important to make yourself as marketable as possible for any future opportunities which may come up during the course of your career.

Be sure to bring any and all documentation that could assist in the background check process including old employer pay stubs and tax records. It’s also a good idea to bring any paperwork related to special health issues you have. If you think you might need it, bring it with you.
