Driver of the Month/Year Awards
Driver Recognition Program
The purpose of the Driver of the Month Awards is to recognize the drivers that our industry is built upon. This program is intended to identify and honor drivers who have displayed a high degree of excellence and an impeccable driving record during their driving career.
Every year California Trucking Association awards California’s best truck drivers with the distinguished honor of being named Drivers of the Month for the current year.
The process begins with a CTA member company nominating drivers who have shown their dedication to their job and the responsibility to safety that comes along with that position.
These nominations are then presented to an independent panel of judges.
The selection panel meets two times a year to review and evaluate all nominations. Before the panel sees the forms, the names of drivers and companies are removed to ensure that each candidate and their company remain anonymous.
The program culminates each November with a banquet in the North and one in the South where each winner is awarded a plaque and recognized for their outstanding service. The night is also filled with great excitement and anticipation as the Driver of the Year honor is revealed for the first time and bestowed upon the unknowing recipient.
