Women Go the Distance With CRST

In the past few years, we’ve had more women join us than in any period before. And we love it. In fact, CRST has double the national average of women truck drivers. We have several women who have driven a million miles without incident and have been with us for over a decade, while many others are leading the way for women in trucking as trainers. Truck driving should be accessible to everyone. These inspiring women are no exception and they aren’t afraid to tell you so.

FOUR DAY ORIENTATION

We'll start you off with a four-day driver orientation program at one of our major full-service terminals in Cedar Rapids, IA, Oklahoma City, OK, or Riverside, CA.

After orientation, you'll have the support you need to take on any challenge the road throws your way. We believe that it's in everyone's best interest to get you earning as soon as possible.
