Truck Driving Weekend Course

The Weekend Course is very similar to the Night Course.  It is personalized truck driver training, and you will obtain a commercial driver's license (CDL)  in just five weekends.

Class hours are: Saturday and Sunday, 8:00am - 5:00pm

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 four 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.
