Before you can pursue a career as a truck driver, you must obtain a Commercial Driver’s License, or CDL. Enrolling in a CDL school will provide you with both the skills and the knowledge to handle a truck safely and efficiently. During your time in trucking school, you will also receive personalized advice and coaching to help you pass the CDL exam to receive your license.

Hands-On Training

One of the most important aspects of trucking school is the opportunity to receive hands-on training. Because most individuals who enroll in CDL school have never driven a truck, this aspect of the coursework is invaluable when it comes time to pass the skills portion of the CDL exam. Skills you will learn during your hands-on training time include truck inspection, shifting, and backing up. You will receive on-the-road training so you can learn how to safely handle all aspects of driving on both city roads and interstates, including lane changes and turns.

Classroom Work

Some of your CDL training will involve classroom work. This work is designed to ensure you know the rules of the road and can operate your truck safely, as well as gain the knowledge required to pass the knowledge portion of the CDL test to obtain your license. During your time in the classroom, you will review the general rules of the road and learn any additional rules and regulations that apply to trucks and trailers. You will also learn how to read and keep logbooks while on the job, which is an important aspect of working as a truck driver.
