Yard Jockey Driver Training

Yard drivers — also known as yard jockeys, hostlers or yard goats — are invaluable in maintaining yard efficiency. When operating on a public roadway, these drivers must also meet the same criteria as your over-the-road drivers. This program provides practical instruction for moving trailers safely and efficiently in the yard and on the road, including coupling and uncoupling, vehicle inspections, backing and docking, and more.


During this program, our veteran trainers will teach your drivers using a comprehensive curriculum that employs these high-impact training methods:


Online Courses

Ensure that your yard drivers have a strong understanding of the safety practices, vehicle operations and regulations that apply to them.


Classroom Experience

Offers in-depth classroom training on key topics and prepares your drivers to go out on the range.


Range Experience

Lets your yard drivers apply their training in a safe, closed-course environment.

Training Program Options


Choose from a variety of options designed to make sure your yard drivers operate safely:


Inexperienced Driver Training

Covers everything yard drivers with less than one year of professional driving experience must know.


Experienced Driver Training

Ensures that drivers with more than one year of yard driving experience continue to meet your safety standards.


Driver Coaching

Addresses a yard driver’s negative driving event before it becomes a serious risk through the use of topic-specific micro-learning.
