Mission

Promote excellence in training | Develop safety in the transportation industry | Enhance driver professionalism

Advocacy

Working with lawmakers and regulators, CVTA and its members advocate for practical and sensible policies which impact our students, schools, and motor carriers. The association provides industry expertise to policymakers, facilitates an ongoing dialogue between industry and government officials, and ensures our members’ voices are heard in Washington, D.C. and in State Capitals.

Education Programs and Content

The association creates and shares its own educational content and videos to help prepare students for success in their future career. Driver Retention is a major problem facing the trucking industry. Driver turnover is a major issue for CVTA Schools and Motor Carrier members. One of our goals is to do our best to reduce driver turnover. Towards that end, CVTA’s Member Schools and Motor Carrier Members worked together to produce a ten minute video to alert students to the Issues Involved in changing jobs titled “It Pays To Stay.” The following year, the same group produced a video titled “It Pays to Pay,” providing students with the skills for handling their finances while on the road. Working with the Commercial Driver Training Foundation, CVTA also produced a video titled “Life on the Road” that provides potential students and their families an opportunity to see an overview of what the life of a long haul truck driving professional entails.


We also created a series of brochures for distribution at schools providing similar information for the potential student to take with them for consideration. Our efforts are designed to educate our new professional truck drivers to the industry.

Collaboration

Hosting two conferences a year, an annual Hill Day event, monthly webinars on industry-specific topics, a newsletter, and collaboration through committee calls, CVTA provides critical information to its members and opportunities to network and learn best practices.
