We have been training drivers for over thirty years and over that time have developed what we feel is one of the best on-the-job training programs in the entire industry.
Get your career started the right way.
Truck Driving, Transportation, and Mechanics
WE PAY YOU TO TRAIN
That's right - we pay you to train. On top of any sign-on incentives you may qualify for, R. E. West considers its trainees employees and pays them through the entire course of their training.
NO CONTRACTS OR FINE PRINT
We are completely open about our training process. If for some reason you do not make it through training, the only thing we ask is that you pay back any sign-on bonus you may have received. We do not ask you to sign any sort of contract or non-compete to receive our training.
A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS
Our training program consistently turns out some of the best young drivers in the industry. Many of our veteran drivers who have been with R. E. West for many years got their start just like you, coming off the street with little to no experience and looking for an opportunity at a better career. Our training instructors are both certified 3rd party testers by the state of Tennessee and are highly sought after for their training and testing abilities.
GOT A CDL BUT NO EXPERIENCE?
If you are a driver who has obtained their CDL via a trucking school or self-study and testing via a 3rd party tester but don't have at least 6 months of experience, R. E. West has a program that can help you as well. We work with you to evaluate your skill level and place you either in our on-yard training program to brush up on the basics or out with one of our driver trainers. Once with a driver trainer you will spend, at most, three weeks out on the road working through our training manual. After you complete your time with your on-the-road trainer, you will do a final road test and then be issued your own truck
NO GIMMICKS, NO CONTRACTS, NO SEARCHING FOR A JOB
You won't find a better way to enter the trucking world than our training program. If you are ready to study, work hard, and believe in yourself, then we can help you embark on a career that will help you and your family find financial stability and life satisfaction. Being a professional truck driver isn't an easy profession, however it is a rewarding one. We are here to make your transition into this career as low-stress as possible.
