Become a Driver

We are currently looking for independent contract drivers with a class A or B CDL. If you have a current DOT physical card and are willing to take a drug screening test, you may be able to become an independent driver for RoadRunner Driveaway.

Our drivers deliver all types of buses and trucks nation wide and some international deliveries as well. These are typically one way deliveries so in an effort to reduce your down time we will, when possible, try to line up back hauls. Passports are a great advantage and allow for more trip opportunities. Tow cars are also helpful and save time and money when deadheading.

Get started today and be your own boss by downloading the application {under the drivers tab), fill it out completely and mail or fax it to us and start living a better life today.
