CDL Training: Head Back to School

School is starting and so can you!

No, this doesn’t mean you get to go back to Kindergarten or that you need to take those math classes again! But think about it, if your kids are already in school for 7-8 hours per day, wouldn’t it be a great time to get back to training for your new career? This is the perfect time for you to finally pursue your goal of earning your CDL and get on the road!

Getting Your CDL Requires Schooling:

Class A CDL:

For most people, getting a Class A CDL means classes will be involved in order to pass their written and road test. Your CDL Training Course will require you to take 20 days and 160 hours of training to get ready for your road safety test. If you complete the course, you will be eligible to take your CDL Class A road test.

Class B CDL:

If you wish to get a license to drive something such as a dump truck, large straight truck, mixer truck, utility truck, etc., or event commercial busses, then the Class B license is right for you.

Your training would be a 15-day and 120-hour course that will allow you to take the road test for your Class B CDL license. If you wish to select the “Passenger P” option as an endorsement to drive passengers, you will have an additional week of training to complete to get that endorsement.
