FAQs - Teachers

Are students allowed to ride in the truck with the driver?

No. Students are not allowed to ride in the driver's truck unless they are family related. Almost all carriers prohibit strangers from riding in their trucks. All activities outside the writing of letters/emails including school visits and tours of the driver's without your express permission is prohibited. For safety reasons, truck trips are strictly prohibited.

What are the office hours for Trucker Buddy?

Our driver/teacher liaison office is open Monday through Thursday 9:00 am through 5:00 p.m.. Note that all times are CST time.

I'd like to have a driver of a specific religious/ethnic group. Is this an option?

Trucker Buddy does not determine the religious or ethnic background of any participant.

Many of the students [in the Trucker Buddy program] struggle with academics. However, they work hard and achieve success because they are fascinated by the trucking industry.
