Nock's Trucking is hiring CDL Driver Trainees to support the Amazon Freight Partner program. We have partnered with 160 Driving Academy to offer excellent entry-level Commercial Driver's License A training (CDL-A) and competitive starting pay!

Academy classes meet 8-hours a day, 5-days a week for 6 weeks for CDL-A training (160 hours) and Finishing training (60 hours). You will receive a pay of $15.74 per hour during the training period.
The 160 Driving Academy (DA) teaches students skills to be the one of the safest drivers on the road. Their instructors, many with a million miles or more of safe driving experience, actively engage all students in the classroom, practice yard, and on the road.
