This article describes the truck driver training program at North American Van Lines (NAVL), Ft. Wayne, Indiana. The program is fast-moving and challenging. Students range in age from 21 to 60, are both male and female, and come from all walks of life. The training program includes classroom instruction and road tests, followed by a five day road trip which covers about 1100 miles. When students return from the road trip, they spend one-half day in a class on business management and one-half day on basic tractor maintenance. The following Monday they sign their contracts with NAVL, pick up their tractors and trailers, and receive the dispatch for their first load.
