CLASS A CDL TRAINING PROGRAM
If you’ve been thinking about looking to learn how to drive the big rigs, you’ve come to the right place. When people think about truckers or becoming a truck driver, they are often referring to a Class A Commercial Driver’s License. A Class-A CDL is the right choice for someone who is looking to drive a tractor trailer, or often called a big-rig, semi-truck, or 18-wheeler. We begin by teaching the basics of truck driving so you do not need to have any prior experience with large vehicles to begin your training.
- Begin with CDL Learner’s Permit Prep
- Safety is a top priority
- Training on Federal and State regulations
- Learn inspection procedures
- Shifting practice on CDL driving simulators
- Hands-on and behind the wheel training
- Road training and CDL Road Test Sponsorship
WHAT IS CLASS-A CDL TRAINING LIKE?
Driving a Class-A commercial motor vehicle is a lot different than driving a passenger car or truck. Our Class-A CDL tractor trailer training is designed to teach our students those differences and allow them to put their knowledge into practice. Training begins with preparing for your CDL permit in the classroom and includes shifting and driving practice on our truck driving simulators. Students will be taught things like inspection procedures, and how the components of a truck—like air brakes and transmissions—work differently on commercial vehicles.
Once you have finished your safety and knowledge training it’s time to put your new skills to work out in the training field with our fleet of trucks and tractor trailers. Here you will learn procedures like Pre-Trip Inspection, Coupling and Uncoupling (aka Drop and Hook), Air Brake Test, and Shifting Drills. You will also learn backing maneuvers such as Straight Back, Blind Side Parallel Park, Sight Side Parallel Park, Alley Dock, and Offset Backing. Finally you’ll have the chance to head out on the road alongside one of our experienced CDL driving instructors in a real tractor trailer.
