PTI does not have a driver training program for people to earn their Class A CDL licenses or those who do not have their license. However, we do hire a limited amount of recent graduates with Class A CDL certificates from a certified training school with 6 months of experience, who then enter our mentor-led training program. Give us a call at 1-855-784-5627 to see if your Class A CDL driving school qualifies; we may be able to help through our Driver Mentor/Trainer program.
A minimum of 9-12 months of recent tractor trailer experience is required for most PTI dedicated and regional Class A CDL truck driving positions. For our Intermodal positions, a minimum of 18 months of recent tractor trailer experience is needed.
Sorry, at PTI we need Class A CDL drivers. A Class A license allows you to drive trucks with trailers of any size. The Class B license allows you to drive a truck of any size, but you’re not allowed to pull a large trailer behind a Class B truck.
At this time, PTI Class A CDL Drivers are not allowed to take their trucks home for liability reasons. Plus, if there are any maintenance problems, or if a driver needs to take a day off, it complicates the accessibility we have to the truck.
Yes, PTI awards bonuses to its Class A CDL drivers in addition to its sign-on bonuses. Here’s how they’re broken out: $1,000 Referral (Awarded to all drivers) Up to $300 MPG bonus per month (Mileage Drivers) $100 Injury free bonus (Hourly Drivers)
Yes! Non-daily PTI Class A CDL Drivers may bring up to two pets with them at a time when they’re out on the road. To ensure the pet’s safety, they must be restrained or kenneled while the truck is in motion.

Yes, PTI does offer sign-on bonuses for the majority of our driving fleet. The amount does vary and Class A CDL Drivers are paid this bonus when they pull their first load with us.
