Truck Driver Training Program

This four week course is considered a staple 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.

Class hours are Monday thru Friday from 7am-4pm.  This includes an one hour lunch.

The first week of training is a combination of classroom training and field training.

Some of the topics include:

  • Safety techniques
  • In-dept study of DOT safety, rules and regulations.
  • Preparation for the six tests that all commercial drivers 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 and  behind-the-wheel training.  Students will learn:

  • Pre-trip examination and terminology


  • Backing and docking techniques


  • City and highway driving and how it relates to safety


  • Up-shifting and down-shifting
  • Emergency procedures
