Truck Driving School

Phoenix Truck Driving Institute has been providing students with CDL training for 11 years. If you want to become a professional truck driver we offer the training and testing programs you need to acquire a Class A commercial driver’s license. We offer a combination of classroom, range, and on-the-road training and we can have you driving in as little as 4 weeks. Contact us today and one of our advisors will explain in detail how you can become a professional truck driver and will guide you through the process of earning your commercial driver’s license.

High Demand for Truck Drivers

The skilled labor shortage has disrupted the trucking industry. Many companies have trucks sitting idle because there is higher demand for drivers than there is a supply. For this reason, many companies are offering incentives such as a higher salary, better benefits, and signing bonuses. Many of our students receive job offers before completing their training, or shortly after completing the program. It is possible for our students to earn more than $64,000* per year after obtaining their CDL certification. There are various career paths our students can follow. There is a need for local, regional, or over-the-road runs; there are even opportunities to work solo or as a team. Our priority is our student's success both during and after training. There are dedicated Admissions Advisors that will provide a tour of our facility, give you information on financial assistance, and further explain our process when it comes to employment assistance.
