Safe Driver Apprenticeship Pilot Program
The Safe Driver Apprenticeship Pilot Program (SDAP) opened its application portal for participation on Tuesday, July 26, 2022. Created by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the program acknowledges that safety is the highest priority for truck drivers. SDAP will help individuals between 18 – 20 explore interstate trucking careers and assist trucking companies in hiring and training new drivers through rigorous training standards – pairing each young driver with an experienced mentor. For more information, please view the SDAP Public Information Webinar that covers training qualifications, participation requirements, and instructions about the application process.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.
