Two and a half years is the average (nationwide) for P/T Handlers moving on to driving. Of course that’s just the average, it varies depending on location as mentioned before. Start bidding on every FT job that comes up. Are there 22.4s at your center? That could be your ticket to RPCD in a couple more years. You’re gonna have to pass a road test to get into driving, so learn how to drive a manual transmission if you don’t already. Then you’ll have to make it through a week of training where they test you in class and on road. Once you’re through that you get 30 days to not F up, make book on a training route and hope they don’t DQ you for something trivial. Not hard but not easy either.
