CDL Driver Training Program

Earn while you learn. Rumpke offers a free, professional-driver training program to help grow our team of drivers. (A program like ours could cost as much as $8,000 elsewhere.) Since the program's inception, hundreds of individuals have secured their Class B CDL and started driving for us. Unlike many CDL training programs which cost thousands of dollars, Rumpke's driver trainee program is a full-time paid position. Individuals receive classroom, in-field, and cross training. We cover all training costs, and participants earn raises for each milestone achieved. You must meet the following eligibility qualifications:

  • Possess a valid driver's license
  • Pass a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination
  • Ability to understand English
  • Be drug-free and agree to drug testing
  • Be at least 19 years of age
  • Pass a required entrance examination
