    I am about to apply to Fedex freight I see they require a year of experience in the last 3 years or successfully completion of driver development course. I appreciate any info about the driver development course.

    It’s basically a couple extra weeks of training with a trainer on top of the usual training period.

    How long does the training last? Do you start out on a dock then work up to a driver??

    The normal training is 3-4 weeks and with the DDC adds 2 weeks or more depending on your progress.

    There is a lot of dock training but you will start driving as soon as you complete your training. Depending on your location you will have shorter runs to hubs and work the dock 3-5 hours then drive back to your terminal.
     
    Bama Roadrunner Thanks this.
