Not all CDL schools are created equal, so when selecting a school that is best for you, choose your school wisely. Consider factors that best fits your situation and needs, such as

  • When courses are offered, such as during the day, evenings or weekends
  • Class size and acceptance rates
  • Length of program, such as shorter and streamlined programs when needed
  • Classroom vs hands-on instruction behind the wheel training that reflect real-world work driving conditions
  • Externships and job placement opportunities with trucking carriers
  • Financial assistance available

CDL Training Guide's truck driving school directory includes the following types of CDL schools:

  1. Company sponsored schools - CDL training facilities offered by carriers where the student attends the school at minimal or no cost in exchange for a commitment to drive for that carrier for a period of time upon completing the training.
  2. Independent schools - privately owned CDL training facilities where tuition is paid by the students. These schools tend to be more expensive although loans or other financial assistance may be available. The majority of CDL training facilities are independently owned, therefore these schools are often the closest options
  3. Community colleges and trade schools - many local educational institutions offer high quality and low cost CDL training. Many are members of the National Association of Publicly Funded Truck Driving Schools (NAPFTDS) which promotes public education for the trucking industry.

CDL Training Guide wishes you the best with your CDL driving school selection process, your CDL training and your career as a professional truck driver. For additional information on the steps needed to get your CDL, watch this video.
