Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

CDL Training Overview

In four short weeks, students will be ready to pass the Class A Commercial Driver’s License exam and hit the road as a licensed commercial truck driver. Students will get classroom and highway instruction as they train to sign on with a trucking company or become their own boss as an owner-operator of a commercial vehicle.

Graduates will be prepared to test for a Class A Commercial Drivers License. If accepted into the program, students are required to obtain a CDL Learner's Permit (CLP) before class starts. A 10-year driving record obtained from DMV and DOT physical are required. All paperwork must be completed before the student can be scheduled for a class. The program has been inspected, approved, and licensed by the Virginia  Department of Motor Vehicles. All instructors meet the department’s standards and are certified by the DMV. Students are given the opportunity to take the CDL driving test at their local DMV office in the same vehicle they used to complete their training.
