The Morning Star Training Process

Our process includes screening/interviewing and DOT qualification.
Before attending our training program, be prepared for drug screens and employment verification.

The instruction is provided to individuals who intend to enter into employment with Morning Star as a truck driver for at least one season. The benefit to Trainee is the gaining of a Class A license plus a season’s experience as a Class A Driver, making Trainee marketable to other trucking firms after season’s end. The benefit to Morning Star is the acquisition of a qualified driver who can help us provide service to our customers.
