Maverick Transportation LLC, a National Transportation Institute 2018 Top Pay Carrier and also named 2018 Best Fleets to Drive For, recently announced the opening of its new driving school, Maverick Driving Academy.
The school, which is on the company’s North Little Rock AR campus, will hold its first class December 3.
“One of the biggest challenges that trucking companies face today is attracting new drivers to the industry,” said John Culp, president of Maverick. “We have been successfully training drivers for many years and are excited to announce the addition of CDL (commercial driver license) education to our curriculum. Maverick Driving Academy will offer a seamless path to employment at Maverick, for those seeking a new career as a professional truck driver.”
The company opened up its first training facility in North Little Rock in 2005, where it has provided drivers with training and securement curriculum. Maverick’s new driving school will be an expansion to the company’s programs. Here, students will receive the necessary CDL education and training to become professional drivers.
“Our new school is a way to add to the driver education that has already been a vital part of our growth and success over the years,” said Culp. “We are committed to growing our company ‘The Maverick Way,’ and we’re looking forward to having these new drivers walk through our doors.”

Other driver benefits at Maverick include pay increases and bonus pay opportunities, excellent home time, weekly guarantee pay, paid orientation and training, 401k plan and match, company-paid life insurance, paid vacation, health and dental plans, and a driver referral bonus program.
