Truckers Are in High Demand

The most recent annual report from the American Trucking Associations (ATA) shows that there was a shortage of 60,800 drivers in 2018. This number could increase to 160,000 by 2028 if trends continue. What this means is that the trucking industry is in need of more qualified individuals to haul freight. As a result, many motor carriers are competing to offer signing bonuses, better benefits, and higher pay. You can earn more than $76,000 a year* after earning your CDL. There are also many different career options available to you. You can drive locally, regionally, or over-the-road, as well as choosing whether to work alone or with another driver. During and after your training, we are committed to helping you find the right path and succeed as a trucker. We offer job placement assistance and many of our students have job offers before graduation or shortly after.

Benefits of Obtaining Your CDL

If you are looking for a rewarding career, look no further than trucking. There are many opportunities and benefits within the industry once you obtain your license.

    Due to the increasing demand for drivers, many companies are interested in immediately hiring individuals once they earn their CDL.
    It's difficult to find a profession with great pay and benefits that only requires a few weeks of education. You can complete our CDL program in as little as four weeks.
    One reason that many people enjoy truck driving is that it lets you experience the freedom and beauty of the open road. Truckers see our country in all of its glory and can visit diverse locations all over the nation.
    CDL drivers can earn more than $76,000 a year.* Additionally, some companies offer signing bonuses and other incentives that can further increase your earning potential.
    Many drivers can take advantage of benefits from their motor carriers including medical, dental, life insurance, vision, paid time off, and retirement plans.
    As a truck driver, it's often possible to choose the hauls you would like and many companies are flexible with their scheduling. You can also decide which type of route works best for you: local, regional, or over-the-road.

If you want to take advantage of these benefits and more, Phoenix Truck Driving Institute can help you start your trucking career.

Choosing a Trucking School

To decide which CDL school you want to attend, consider all the factors. It's important to do your research to find a school that will best fit your needs and goals. Here are some things to consider when choosing a truck driver training program:

Skilled Instructors

Our instructors at Phoenix Truck Driving Institute are former drivers who share their real-world experience with their students. This lets you learn from someone who has walked in your shoes.

Flexible Class Schedules

It can be tough to balance your life and your education. Many students in our program have full-time jobs or family obligations and we understand that you can't put these on hold to attend CDL classes. It is our goal to make it as easy as possible for you to earn your CDL, which is why we offer day, evening, and weekend classes.

Financing Your Education

Our advisors can help you determine what funding options you may have. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.

Avoid Restrictions on Your CDL

We train our students with manual transmissions instead of automatic. As a result, you will not have this restriction on your license. We also cover material from the air brakes portion of the CDL test, so you will also avoid this restriction.

Military Benefits

Phoenix Truck Driving Institute is proud to be recognized as a Military Friendly School. Qualified veterans and those transitioning out of active service can use their GI Bill® benefits to obtain their license and prepare for a new career in the civilian workforce.

Our CDL Training Program

Our goal is to give students the tools they need to succeed in the trucking industry. We have different class schedules to meet your needs and also offer refresher courses and third-party road testing.
