Please be sure to fill out all sections of the application, answering all questions on all 3 pages and signing where necessary. On the front page, please do not omit filling out any of the blank spaces. On page 2, please note that previous employment has to be listed for the past 10 years, whether you drove during any of that time or not; we have to have 10 years employment listed. If you list "Self Employed" for the previous 3 years, we have to have proof of self employment, such as copies of your taxes, or a copy of your business license stating when you started your business. On page 3, please note there are 5 sections to be completed. Please do not miss the "A and B" questions. Also, in "Experience", please list either the years you drove or the miles you drove. The next two pages, one being "Verification of Past Employment" page, please fill out the top 4 blank spaces only with your name, SSN, and date. On the next page, "Pre-Employment Screening Program", please sign and date at the bottom. All 6 pages must be submitted to complete the application process.

Driver Orientation and Training

All of our contractors are required to attend an orientation class where they receive the appropriate training required for the position. Please allow an overnight stay for orientation and training. The orientation requirements begin with a previously completed application which you can download from this website and fax to 574-533-5888, and an approved MVR from our insurance company on your driving record. If you are from PA, WA, CO, GA, or NH you will have to submit an MVR to the above fax number to be submitted to our insurace company for approval.

Once we have received an approved MVR and you've completed the application, we can set up an appointment for your orientation and training to take place. Orientation/training class also includes information regarding FMCSA regulations, company policies in the driver manual, and a driving test. When arriving for orientation/training we also make sure that your vehicle meets all of our requirements and that you have all of the appropriate paperwork we need to lease you on (listed below).

** If the truck is not registered in your name you will need a Notarized Power of Attorney from the registered owner allowing you to lease the truck in your nameand to receive payments for the load.

***Please see page on our site listing insurance companies who can provide this coverage.

Once all paperwork is completed we will begin the orientation process, which takes approximately 2-3 hours. We will go over FMCSA regulations, company policies, a road test (using your truck) and your lease will be signed. You will be given a manual with Synergy RV Transport’s Drug and Alcohol Policy, your signs, transporter plates and all other paperwork fulfilling DOT requirements. Most appointments for leasing on are made for early morning and by the end of the day you should be leaving with your first unit.
