CDL Commercial Truck Driving

Taking Registration for the Upcoming CDL Courses.

Students in the program spend the first 40 hours in the classroom preparing for the Commercial Learner’s Permit Exam.  After earning a permit, students spend the next four weeks focusing on vehicle inspection, preventative maintenance, and hands-on defensive driving.  They will have range practice, behind-the-wheel driving time, and one trip to Newport to test in the same vehicle used during the training program.

Students are required to demonstrate proficiency in shifting, backing up, and city and highway driving as required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration rules and regulations.

New classes form every 5 weeks.  Call to register!

Cost
$3,500

Additional training time after the program has concluded may incur an additional fee, to be determined.
If needed, additional testing fees will be $125each.
[info]The written permit test must be obtained before admission to the driving portion of the class.[/info]
