BASIC COURSE

Get Started

Our Basic Course is the minimum required to get hired by most trucking companies. We will cover all aspects of the exams plus give you plenty of time behind the wheel. Our Basic Courses tend to fill up fast, so make sure to sign up today and reserve your spot.

  • 80 hours of instruction. Classes run for two weeks (Monday – Friday), from 8am to 5pm with breaks and lunch. Lunch is included each day. 

  • Before class begins, you will be given all the study materials needed to help you pass your knowledge tests and obtain your Commercial Learner’s Permit. 

  • We will arrange for your physical exam and drug screening, and make sure you have everything on the DMV’s Document Checklist. We will pay for the physical and screening.

  • The first two days are dedicated to classroom study and instruction. On day three you will go to get your Commercial Learner’s Permit. We will pay the DMV Original Application Fees.

  • Each of the following days will be split between classes on passing the walk around inspection, in-cab and air system tests, skills training, and road driving.

  • We will go into detailed explanations of the operations of the breaking and air systems with hands-on and visual aids.

  • We will provide the equipment for you to take the driving test at the DMV. It will be the same make and model equipment as you have been practicing on.

  • We can help with job placement and potentially get you a pre-hire letter. Depending on the hiring company, we will provide any company specific training needed.

  • As alumnus, you will always have access to our network. We will be there to help you if you have any questions about driving, logbooks, equipment, situations, OTR living, careers, or even starting your own company.
