At the Yellow Driving Academy, students get paid to earn their commercial driver's license (CDL) certification and learn how to drive the Yellow way.
For more than 90 years, drivers have been the beating heart of Yellow. Their professionalism and expertise are the reasons our customers keep coming back. If you want to join the best people in transportation and help write the next great chapter in the LTL industry, the tuition-free Yellow Driving Academy is a great place to start. Yellow is one of the few trucking companies that charges no tuition for CDL training and actually pays students while they attend the driving academy.
The Yellow CDL Driving Academy will teach you the skills to be one of the best and safest drivers on the road. Our instructors, many with more than a million miles of safe driving experience, will actively engage you in the classroom, in the practice yard and on the road, laying the foundation for a fulfilling and dynamic career as a Yellow truck driver.
Yellow intends to add more locations and terminal-hosted academies, with a goal of graduating 1,000 new CDL drivers by the end of 2022. In a recent article, Transport Dive highlighted Yellow's commitment to training safe and professional drivers.
The Yellow CDL Driving Academy consists of four weeks of classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel training with an experienced and highly qualified instructor. The program is both entry-level driver training-compliant and fully registered through the Department of Labor Apprenticeship Program.
Once you graduate from the Yellow CDL Driving Academy and obtain your CDL and endorsements, you'll return to your home terminal for a minimum of four weeks of paid training.
In total, you'll received more than 320 hours of instruction, all of it tuition-free and paid for by Yellow. Click here to read more about Yellow's CDL training on The Extra Mile blog.
