Are there any companies that don't require cab sharing during training?

by Jonathan

I am very interested in truck driving, but I am not at all interested in spending an entire month sleeping in a cab with some other guy. Are there any companies that have a different policy or training style?

Schneider national, best company as well in my opinion. You will get the best training, though one week on the road in training is required. Going to be honest with you though. You are going to need some over the road experience with a professional. You will not just be able to get a truck and go. The job is tougher then you think. People think well I'm just driving how hard could it be. It's not as easy as you think.

It's not that big of a deal Johnathan. You don't sleep on the same bed at the same time. One drives and the other sleeps. There are two bunks.

Having said that, I am sure there are some but I don't know the name of one to give you.

Companies that do regional or less than truckload (LTL) might not require sleeping in the truck together overnight.

Most Over the road trucking companies are not trying to spend extra money to put people in a hotel just so they don't have to sleep in the same space. Not to mention it also wastes times with checking in and out every night. There are enough people to deal with it for a month or so that they are not pressed to do that.
