The Diesel Truck Driver Training School will make sure you are ready.

Our school is one of the nation’s oldest networks of truck driver training schools. Since 1963 we have been preparing students for their Class-A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) through our programs that teach the fundamentals of tractor trailer driving in preparation for both the written and road tests. Unlike other schools, our training program also helps prepare students for employment in the trucking industry as a driver.

To make sure that our students are ready for their CDL exams the curriculum focuses on behind the wheel, hands on instruction that includes:

  • Over the road driving
  • Backing exercises
  • Pre-trip inspection
  • Coupling and uncoupling

To compliment your time behind the wheel of a heavy truck, we also cover the classroom topics that students will see on written tests such as the Department of Transportation road rules and the safe operation of equipment associated with truck driving.
