Job Description:



Overview

Amazon's Driver Academy offers tuition-free, paid training with classroom and on-the-road instruction to obtain your CDL and get experience to haul for an Amazon Freight Partner!

After completing the program, students will be responsible for transporting freight on assigned routes to Amazon operated facilities. These facilities are locally operated carriers, and drivers can expect to have full benefits and opportunities. In addition, this position will include no-touch freight and drop-&-hook loads. This is an excellent opportunity to get into the driver seat of a new career!

Training Structure

The AFP Driver Academy program will consist of three training phases: CDL-A training, finishing training, and on-the-job training. Drivers without a CDL-A will complete all three training phases. Existing CDL-A holders with less than two years of commercial driving experience will only complete finishing training and on-the-job training phases.

We are partnering with a third-party service, 160 Driver Academy, to conduct CDL-A and finishing training. Once drivers are selected for the program, they need to clear background check. Post clearing background check, local 160 Driver Academy representative will reach out to these drivers to go over the driver registration process. Upon receiving a conditional trainee job offer from Amazon Freight Partner, 160 Driver Academy representative will work to facilitate the driver's enrollment prior to class start date. This includes enrollment paperwork, DOT Physical and Drug Screening.

  • Company Sponsored CDL-A Training
    Our affiliated truck driver training school program is designed for individuals without prior experience who want to obtain their CDL-A. Training starts with 40 hours/5 days of in-class instruction on safety best practices, rules of the road, and mechanical information needed to earn a CDL-A permit. After passing a theory test, trainees will receive 120 hours/15 days of behind-the-wheel training for hands-on experience. Upon completion of the program, trainees will have earned their CDL-A.

    • Finishing Program
      The Driver Academy Finishing Program is designed for new CDL-A drivers with less than 2 years on road experience. Instruction includes 54 hours of hands on training to provide the knowledge and skills needed to fully prepare drivers to perform independently behind the wheel.

      • On-the-Job Training
        Drivers who pass finishing training will receive their employment offer from an Amazon Freight Partner and start solo driving with Amazon loads. During on-the-job training, drivers will be given a workload that gradually ramps up for two weeks. Once drivers achieve the target safety and performance goals, they will be eligible to graduate from the program and convert to full-time employment.
