Commercial Driver Training & Programs

Commercial vehicle training, which provides instruction in the operation of commercial vehicles. Check with individual schools to find out what types of job placement services might be available. These training programs provide the following services:

  • CDL A:
    A state-approved driver training program for entry-level tractor-trailer drivers. This 148-hour (minimum) course, which is consistent with national training guidelines, provides a combination of classroom, range, and on-the-road instruction.
  • CDL B:
    A state-approved driver training program for straight truck drivers. This 74-hour (minimum) course provides a combination of classroom, range, and on-the-road instruction.
  • Upgrade:
    Drivers holding Class B CDL licenses can receive training to upgrade to a Class A license by successfully completing a 74-hour (minimum) course which provides classroom, range, and on-the-road instruction.

Each of these courses helps prepare prospective truck drivers for taking CDL knowledge and skills tests. Vehicles are provided for students to take the CDL skills test. All tests are given at DMV test sites.
