NEW US Xpress Apprenticeship Program
for Truck Drivers

We’re proud to announce the Veterans Administration just accredited US Xpress as part of the Post 9/11 GI Bill Apprenticeship Program—one of a select few trucking companies to receive this honor. That means new drivers can now receive tax-free housing benefits checks from the V.A., in addition to earning great money from US Xpress! DRIVERS CAN EARN UP TO $82,000 YOUR FIRST YEAR! Don’t want to use your GI Bill or not eligible? Then our Advanced Rate of Pay Program may be your best choice.

Don’t have your CDL A but already have driving experience in the military?

How the Apprenticeship Program Works.

If you qualify for the post 9/11 GI Bill, you’re now eligible to get up to 24 monthly payments from the V.A. while you receive on-the-job training as a professional truck driver at US Xpress. Depending on your active duty status you can get an additional monthly check from the V.A. in addition to your pay from Us Xpress. That’s up to $25,700 more a year…tax-free! Add it to a big paycheck from us and it means you’ll be earning great money while you gain a valuable career. Eligible veterans will complete the V.A. required paperwork on their first day of driver orientation at US Xpress to enroll in our apprenticeship program.

Once you are employed by US Xpress it can take the V.A. approximately 90 days to determine eligibility and issue your first check. Benefits checks are paid directly from the Department of Veteran Affairs. Pay depends on the category a person fits in, but is TAX FREE.

VETERAN’S STORIES

SKILLS WAIVER INFORMATION

Since 2011, State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) have the authority to substitute two years of CMV safe driving experience in military equivalents of commercial motor vehicles for the skills test portion of the commercial driver license skills test. Military drivers must apply within one year of leaving active duty.

The regulation, 49 CFR 383.77, requires applicants to certify:

• You have not held more than one license (except a military DL) in the past two years.

• You have not had your base State-issued driver license suspended, revoked or cancelled.

• You have not had convictions in any type of motor vehicle for the disqualifying CDL offenses listed elsewhere in the regulations.

Some other requirements may apply in your State, but you’ll find the process is designed to make your transition from your military position to a civilian career as easy as possible. For your convenience, the FMCSA has generated the standardized Application for Military Skills Test Waiver form below that addresses all of the issues in the new regulation.
