Our CDL training is hands-on, personalized training with a 5:1 student-to-teacher ratio as required. We allow you to learn at your own pace and you will final test at our 23 acre campus with a “Secretary of State” examiner in the same tractor/trailer rigs you’ve been training in.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Written Exams

We offer and include a commercial driver’s computer training/assistance in how to take and pass the “CLP” (Commercial Learners Permit) tests at the “Secretary of State” facility. Our more than 100 years of combined driving experience will help you pass your CDL test with flying colors!

Hazardous Material Endorsement

Earning your hazardous material endorsement is easy with our superb training. We help you set yourself apart from the competition and increase good job placement!

On the first Wednesday of each month at 5pm-7pm we conduct “Haz-Mat” ELD training complete with a “Certificate of Completion” to present to the “Secretary of State”.
