CRST Counts Every Year in the Military Towards Getting Experienced Driver Pay & Bonuses

CRST Expedited's Military Apprenticeship Program pays you for your service while you train. If you use your GI Bill™ you can earn additional tax free income. Active Military Reservists and Honorably Discharged Veterans also receive a sign on bonus.

Military Apprenticeship Program Approved

If you have at least 2 years of experience driving a commercial vehicle or truck in the military, you may be able to get started even sooner through the Military Skills Test Waiver. This means you would only have to pass the written exam to get your CDL-A, and there is an immediate pay increase.
