Entry Level Driver Training
Our most traditional path to a Class A Commercial Driver License
Next Classes Starting 2/27 and 3/20
This course is designed for individuals seeking a Class A Commercial Driver License and entry level driver positions in the trucking industry. Our students receive online and in-person instruction designed to help them pass the written General Knowledge, Air Brakes, and Combination Vehicles tests. After that, our Behind-the-Wheel training sessions transform students into professional drivers through practical experience and an effective balance of backing and highway/street lessons. Students will practice basic backing maneuvers and highway driving to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that will make the student safe, efficient, and ready for employment.

A faster path for those who already have a Class A learner's permit
Classes Start Every 2 Weeks
This course is a fast-paced training program designed for individuals who already posses a valid Class A Learner’s Permit. To help the student obtain their Class A CDL, our program provides Behind-the-Wheel practice geared toward helping the student pass the CDL Skills Exam. Through an effective balance of backing and highway/street lessons, the student will practice basic backing maneuvers and highway driving to develop knowledge and skills needed to pass the skills portion of the CDL exam. Students will practice coupling and uncoupling, straight line backing, right offset backing, and 90 degree alley dock backing on the range. Urban driving, shifting, highway travel, traffic patterns, and safe driving procedures are taught on public roadways.
Includes cost of third-party administered Road/Skills Testing
For those who have previously held a CDL and hold a Commercial Learner's Permit
This course design is based on an “as needed” weekly training schedule. To be qualified for this course, a person must have previously held a CDL and hold a current Commercial Learner’s Permit. This is an experience-based course, and its length will vary depending on the needs of the applying student. The course is shorter, condensed, and structured based on our instructor’s assessment of the applicant’s skill level. Students desiring to take a condensed course instead of a full course program must have an evaluation performed to determine which condensed course would meet the student’s needs. The student will be required to pay an evaluation fee of $150.00.
