Welcome to General Trucking
Frequently Asked Questions:
Below is an outline of our General Trucking Program. This information is meant to inform you of the opportunity and support that ES has to offer you as you work towards becoming a Class A commercial driver.
What’s new “different” about this program?
You can now use driving experience in a straight truck to count towards your tractor qualification. This allows you or someone you’re helping to get started with your driving career in a much safer piece of equipment; which protects the public, yourself and your commercial license.
Why should I take this route versus going to a commercial driving school?
With the cost of everything going up, this program allows you to earn a top rate per mile while you learn the equipment. When you compare paying for school and then driving for less as a trainee versus our program you will find that you are money and time ahead, plus you’re better prepared to access future opportunities.
Do I have to contract for a certain length of time?
No. You do have to have 6 months of accident free experience before you can move into a tractor, but you can change your career path any time you desire. We believe we offer the best opportunity and the best service in the business. We do not feel the need to “lock” a contractor down legally with a contract.
What kind of equipment will I have access to?
We currently have Freightliner Cascadias to offer. We do not operate equipment beyond 3 years of age.
What opportunities do you offer once I’ve completed the program?
You have multiple options. You can stay in a straight truck or you can move into a tractor as a contract driver. Where we really set ourselves apart is that you can also move into true ownership in a straight truck or tractor, if you desire. We have helped hundreds of Contract Drivers become Owners and Fleet Owners.
What do I need to get started?
