JDR Career Center Truck Driver School

80 Rockefeller Circle, New Cumberland, West Virginia 26047

The JDRCC truck driving program ( http://www.jdrcc.org/cdl/ )is divided into two 6-week periods. The first 6 weeks are described as the range work. Initial training begins with the basic operation of the vehicles. This includes start-up procedures, shifting, coupling and backing rigs. Within the first 2 weeks the student should acquire their CDL permit from the DMV.

The second 6-week period of truck driver training is “road work” and focuses primarily on safe vehicle operation on public roads and highways. The student should also acquire their WV CDL license during this time.
