Prime Student Driver

Prime Inc has a CDL training program and the first phase is referred to as PSD. You'll get your permit and then 10,000 miles of on the road instruction.

The following is from Prime's website:

Prime’s PSD begins with you obtaining your CDL permit. Then you’ll go on the road with a certified CDL instructor for no less than 75 hours of one-on-one behind the wheel training. After training, you’ll return to Prime’s corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, for final CDL state testing and your CDL license.

Obtain CDL Permit / 4 Days

  • Enter program, study and test for Missouri CDL permit.
  • Start driving/training at Prime Training Center in Springfield, Missouri.
  • Work toward 40,000 training dispatched miles (minimum) with food allowance while without CDL (Food allowance is paid back with future earnings).

On-the-Road Instruction / 10,000 Miles

  • Train with experienced certified CDL instructor for 3-4 weeks in a real world environment.
  • Get 75 hours of behind-the-wheel time with one-on-one student/instructor ratio.
  • Earn 10,000 miles toward total 40,000 miles needed.

Well we're about two days out from when I leave. I live in spring hill and my bus was supposed to leave from spring hill to then go to Tampa which is like an hour away from me with a 5 hour layover. I called my recruiter and she was able to change my ticket to leave from Tampa to avoid having that 5 hour layover 1 hour from home. Kind of a pointless updat but shows some of the flexibility of the company. Had no problem getting a new ticket. How awesome is that?

More updates to come! I'll give an update after my 1.5 hour layover in Atlanta at 3AM. IF I LIVE. ;)
