Each state is responsible for regulating the requirements needed to obtain a Class A CDL. Some states set specific guidelines for how long training should last and how many hours of classroom and on-the-road instruction should be included in the CDL training curriculum. Other states allow the truck driver training schools to determine the appropriate length of training.

How Hard is CDL Training?

Many people choose not to attend CDL training because they are worried that driving a truck will be too hard or the written CDL exam will be too complex for them to pass. We believe the best way to learn is by doing. Our truck driver training programs consist of thorough, in-depth classroom review of the skills and knowledge base you need to pass the written exam. Programs also include a driving course that will give you the confidence and road skills necessary to enjoy a safe and rewarding career as a truck driver. Read: how hard is truck driver training >>
