Eligibility Requirements for consideration to PMTA Road team

  1. Candidates must be currently employed as a full-time truck driver, either as a company driver or independent owner-operator.
  2. Candidates must have an outstanding safety record. A minimum three years accident, citation, and violation free is recommended
  3. Candidates, if selected, must be willing to support PMTA events, (No Zone Demonstrations, Youth Driving Championships, PA State Police Familiarization, PMTA Safety Conference, etc.) spending from one to five days per event.
  4. Candidates must be able to clearly and convincingly communicate their commitment to safety and professionalism.
  5. The nominating company must be a full and current dues paying member of the PMTA.

  7. PMTA will pay all travel expenses associated with PMTA arranged Road Team appearances. The nominating company must be willing to continue to pay full salary and provide benefits to the driver.

  10. A candidate and nominator/company must be prepared, if selected as a finalist, to provide a copy of the paperwork to PMTA prior to traveling to PMTA headquarters in Camp Hill, PA for the selection process. This paperwork, which will be shipped to all finalists, is mandatory for consideration to become a Pennsylvania Motor Truck Road Team Captain
