    They have posted for this position and also the Class A Linehaul Driver positions in IL. The Linehaul position requires 1 year driving experience or recent grad of CDL school and/or completion of the driver trainer program. The driver training program doesn't specify you have to already have CDL or not just says must be able to attain a CDL with all endorsements.
    Anyone have experience or knowledge of the driver training program?
    I have a Class A with very little tractor trailer experience who just added tanker, double/triple and will be taking the hazmat as soon as I am cleared for the written. I never went to CDL school but thought about taking CDL refresher training so I could get a certificate. I had local delivery experience years ago and now would like to make deliveries to keep active.

    Most people that enter the driver training program already work for Old Dominion on the dock, but I'm sure there's exceptions. That you already have a CDL is a plus, so it couldn't hurt to apply,if accepted you'll probably take the full training course and spend 30 days (paid)with a trainer. It'll be worth the effort Old Dominion is a terrific place to work.

    I just interviewed and you are right most people are off the docks but I would go through the training with them who don't have CDL. Its a 7 week program then depending on the openings to Line Haul which is typically 50% dock and 50 % driving or City P&D which is mainly driving.
