Customized, Role-based, Expert-led CDL Training


What is Grow Your Own?

Grow Your Own is a new take on traditional Training. For nearly 20 years, Excel Driver Services has offered specialized learning paths to over 110,000 drivers on the road today. With the transportation industry changing at a faster pace than ever before, many companies turn to creative concepts to address the driver shortage. As a result, Excel has approached the problem from a different perspective to bring the transportation industry back to its basics- a comradery of drivers on the road. Wherein we recruit, coach, and Build Better Drivers.

The “Grow Your Own” concept is one that many companies manipulate, while not realizing the damage being created to the industry. Low pay and high turnover continue to drive good employees out of the industry over frustration, anxiety, and programs that do not look at retention as a real issue. The following program is one that can train drivers in a specific manner and develop these drivers over time to help them in a long-term career and structure their success.

How to Build Your Own Learning Plan

  1. Study the easy stuff at home
  2. Identify your coaching needs
  3. Schedule the hard stuff with our coaches

Benefits of Grow Your Own

We recognize that there are many ways to get your CDL, and we believe that affordable quality training should be available to all drivers. By Building Your Own, you are able to pick & choose from a vast array of our training tools such as Simulation, Lectures & Hands-on training. In an attempt to bring affordable quality training, you are able to schedule training in blocks of 1 hour, 3 hours, 5 hours & 8 hours to strengthen your skills as a driver.


Excel works closely with the Oil Field, Food Service & Specialty Transportation Industries which has allowed us to customize a New Hire Training Program to meet the unique requirements of our clients. The Excel-led training process has been broken down into specific modules, where Safety Managers can now choose a package of training specific to your safety needs. Your company is unlike any other and should be addressed as such.

Why Outsource

Excel Driver Services has taken a different approach to finding, training, and retaining good employees for great careers. We have found that “growing your own,creates an environment where companies can develop employees attuned to their culture, which increases retention, and provides a safer, more productive workforce. They are no longer just looked at as a “driver”, but a particular type of driver. Drivers are now being channeled into specialty industry segments, which keeps them focused on their career choice.

Outsourcing new-hire training programs just makes sense. In fact, it has been our specialty for years. Outsourcing these large programs often takes the burden and complexity of creating & implementing an impactful safety course off the shoulders of your safety department, and allows your fleet to immediately benefit from an array of specialized safety courses. Our Grow Your Own programs are designed to change Improper driver-behavior and is coached on an individual-basis to all Excel Driver Services graduates.

By awakening driver instinct, you can expect reduced overhead and coaching instincts for any driver to make confident decisions on the road. With our methodology, we coach to a higher standard that takes time to master. Our programs are cost-effective, current, and consistent. Excel builds our customers’ workforce so they can focus on the core of their business.
