Application Approval Timeline


A common question our recruiting department receives from owner operators applying with Landstar is, "How long does it take from the time I submit my application to when I can begin hauling for Landstar?" The answer: most approved applicants begin hauling for Landstar within 30 days.

Variables that play a role in this timeline include how fast your previous employers reply to the information Landstar requests, how soon applicants get their equipment inspected, and other factors such as orientation schedules and holidays. Unlike most carriers, Landstar's application approval process is 100% complete prior to attending orientation.

Landstar KCL Agency has been recruiting drivers for Landstar for 20 years and is eager to answer any questions you may have and happy to assist you in the application process.
