Driver Application Form

Important! Please read!

The following application should be read through thoroughly and filled out completely. Some questions which don't seem pertinent to driving will help us understand you better and evaluate some non-driving skills which are essential to the job. Please fill in all fields not marked "(Optional)".

For driver/guides your application should be accompanied by a current (less than three months old) copy of your driving record (an updated original will be required if you are hired), a clear photocopy of your drivers license, and of your medical card (if you already have one) or your application may slip to the bottom of the stack.

All hiring is done from Oakland, CA. In some cases we set at a date and have a group training period, otherwise training is done on a one-on-one basis and includes your traveling on one of our trips to see the magic of the Green Tortoise.

Please remember this is a drug free workplace, you will be required to take a pre-employment drug screen as well as random drug and alcohol tests.

Green Tortoise Adventure Travel is an equal opportunity employer.
