Become a driver trainer

Share your knowledge, support your industry, earn more income

Interested in sharing your expertise while earning extra income? Become a driver trainer with our Halvor Gold CDL Training program.

You can earn an additional 27 cents for all dispatched miles while your trainee is in the truck with you. You’ll play an important role in the long-term health of our industry and help new drivers start their careers safely and with confidence.

Halvor Lines driver trainers are selected based on a number of criteria, including:

  • Three months OTR experience with Halvor for experienced drivers (6 months or more driving Class A CDL)
  • A solid record for safety, productivity and other items on Halvor’s driver performance scorecard
  • A desire to share your knowledge and set new drivers up for success

Full-time or part-time trainer? You decide.

Some of our trainers have a trainee in their truck every week. Others take breaks between trainees. We’ll work with you to find a schedule that best fits your training style and personal preferences, including how much additional income you want to earn from training each year.

Trainers and trainees: We work to find good matches.

When you’re training someone, you’re spending a lot of time together in the truck. So it’s important that you get along. That’s why our training department staff spends time getting to know you — and then works to pair you with trainees who will work well with your personality and instruction style.

We’re proud of our strong track record in this area, but there are times folks just don’t fit. When that happens, we’ll help transition your trainee to a different trainer and find another student for you.

"One specific dispatcher"

“As a new driver, I loved having one specific dispatcher that I worked with…so you have the consistency of working with the same person to help you with all your questions.”
