How to Become a CRST Lead Driver
If you are an experienced driver with a desire to earn more money and to help new truck school graduates learn what it’s like to be an OTR driver, you may qualify to be a lead driver (trainer). If you qualify, you would take a recent graduate on the road for 28 days of on-the-job training, and then you would take 4 days off at home. You would then repeat the cycle and would train approximately 9 to 10 students per year. This is a very rewarding position at CRST and you can earn substantially more income.
To qualify, you would need to have a minimum of 6 months of OTR experience. This must include four months of winter driving in the last twelve months, to include driving OTR between the months of November and March. You also need the approval of our Operations and Safety Departments. Once approved, you would attend a brief Lead Driver Class where we would teach you how to train a student with a new CDL.
Some “summer lead drivers” do not have winter driving experience – they just go back to being a Co-driver for the winter.
