TMC has been committed to training CDL school graduates since 1993. Our student driver training program is recognized as one of the best and is one of the few on-the-job truck driver training programs in the country approved by the Department of Labor as a certified Heavy Truck Driver Apprenticeship program. Student drivers are paid while training at TMC, from orientation right on through your over-the-road training with one of our certified flatbed driver trainers. Training is conducted at our Des Moines, Iowa terminal facility. Please visit the Training section of our website for more details on the training process.
The opportunity presented by TMC's performance-based pay program for CDL student drivers cannot be overemphasized. First year average pay is $55,000, but with our pay program we have drivers who are earning over $60,000 in their first year! You won't get that kind of opportunity with company seniority-based pay programs.
