CDL A: Tractor Trailer Training
This program prepares students for their CDL Class A license, and for entry level employment, driving all classes of commercial vehicles. You'll start the course in the classroom, and then move outside to learn more about inspections and maneuvers. Next, you'll learn to drive a tractor trailer on the road.
CDL B: Straight Truck Training
This program prepares students to operate straight trucks, dump trucks, and/or box trucks. You'll start the course in the classroom, and then move outside to learn more about inspections and maneuvers. Next, you'll learn to drive on the road under supervised instruction. Upon completion of the program, you can be fully prepared to pass your road test.
CDL B: With Passenger Endorsement
Upon completion of this course, you'll earn a CDL B with a passenger endorsement and be able to drive a bus. You will first go through the classroom and be taught by an instructor all the information you need to know to pass your permit test. Afterward, your training will be moved to our training yard where you will learn the basic skills of inspecting and operating the vehicle. When you are ready, you will move to road training where you will learn the skills needed to operate the vehicle safely and be prepared to pass your road test.
