CDL Training Programs at Our Somers, CT, Campus

Students can find training to help them earn a CDL at our Somers, Connecticut, campus. Our CDL training programs include:

  • CDL Class-A: This CDL enables truckers to operate commercial vehicles with a gross combination weight of 26,001 pounds or more or a towed unit with a gross vehicle weight of more than 10,000 pounds.
  • CDL Class-B:This CDL allows drivers to work with commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 pounds or more or tow vehicles with less than 10,000 pounds of gross vehicle weight.

During the training programs, students can learn the information necessary to pass their CDL exams. All our schools have a training staff of approximately 40 instructors on campus, meaning students can receive hands-on education from a variety of experienced truck drivers. Our instructors have experience in the truck driving industry and understand how to teach the material that could be covered on the CDL exam.

  • For example, the CDL exam tests students to see how well they operate commercial vehicles on both local roads and highways. Our programs teach students to drive on different road types, routes, and traffic patterns. Students also practice on a variety of tractor-trailer combinations and heavy straight trucks with a five- to 10-speed transmission. We offer five acres of paved area sitting directly next to the school, which students use to practice vehicle backing and maneuvering.The best way for students to learn how to operate a commercial vehicle is by putting their knowledge to the test in real driving situations. That’s why, alongside our campus facilities, students at NETTTS learn how to drive commercial vehicles on real roads and highways throughout the Somers, CT, area, like I-91 or I-84.

“NETTTS is the place to be. The classroom is very important because it prepared me for the road. I had a brake hose break on my trailer and I knew what to look for and what to do. Brake check is very important! Go NETTTS!!!”*
