Truck Driving Four Week Course

 

The four week course is considered the standard bearer for training in the truck driving industry.  The primary objective of this course is to ensure that students are familiar with the procedures and skills necessary while preparing to obtain a commercial driver's license (CDL).

Class hours are: Monday thru Friday, 7:00am - 4:00pm

The first week of training is a combination of classroom training and field training.  Some of the topics include:

  • Safety techniques
  • In-depth study of DOT safety, rules and regulations
  • Preparation for the six test that all California State Commercial Drivers (DMV) need to pass before getting behind the wheel
  • Practice proper log book procedures
  • Job search techniques.

The next three weeks of training are all hands on, behind-the-wheel training.  Students will learn:

  • Pre-trip examination
  • Backing and docking techniques
  • Defensive driving techniques
  • City and highway driving and how it relates to safety
  • Up-shifting and down-shifting
  • Emergency procedures
  • Hooking and unhooking of trailers
  • Training in a variety of trucks
  • Invaluable critiques and guidance from our professional instructors.
