Navigating Your Transition
Werner recognizes that the transition back into civilian life can be quite challenging, especially when starting a second career. We will assist with your transition from a military career to a new career at Werner. Our military recruiting team members are all veterans, meaning they understand your unique position.

Military Skills Test Waiver
If you are a service member who is currently licensed and are employed, or have been employed within the past year (12 months), in a military motor vehicle equivalent to a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV), the Military Skills Test Waiver allows you to apply for a Class A commercial driver license (CDL-A) by taking only the written exam and no skill testing is required. If you have verifiable experience, you may be able to join Werner as a professional driver. Be sure you have a copy of your Military Skills Test Waiver and your training records to provide to your recruiter. Please ensure you check with your state DMV for the current Military Skills Test Waiver Form. If you’re interested or have more questions, please call 888-203-2655 or email [email protected].

The Veterans Crisis Line is a free, anonymous confidential resource that’s available to anyone, even if you’re not registered with the VA or enrolled in VA health care.
Elite Veteran Driver Program
The most visible initiative within the Operation Freedom Program is the Operation Freedom Fleet.
This fleet, driven by veteran associates, is made of military-themed trucks used to honor, recruit and retain military community members. These military community members attend military and corporate recruiting events while hauling freight safely and on time.
Our Operation Freedom drivers have diverse military backgrounds with decades of military experience. Their safe driving record and professional driving experience make perfect candidates for our Operation Freedom Fleet.
The Operation Freedom Fleet has received multiple awards and accolades from truck shows and military organizations. However, their biggest reward is each driver’s pride in being a part of this elite fleet and paying honor and respect to the military community.
If interested in the Operation Freedom Fleet, please call 877-351-7724.
