Driver Instruction Course
Full and part-time training courses are available. Courses include classroom training, one-on-one in truck training, yard training and observation, accident avoidance course and border crossing training. Some of the topics taken in class are: defensive driving, smart driver, load distribution, preventative maintenance, dangerous goods, log books and more. All training is taught by experienced, qualified instructors who have experienced the challenges you may encounter as a new driver.
Our courses are tailored to the individual’s needs. Our truck & trailer fleet includes late model tractors equipped with 10, 13 and/or 18 speed transmissions, and have dual controls for added safety. We work with various motor carriers to ensure that we are training our entry level drivers to meet and surpass the industry’s standards. These same carriers recruit drivers from our schools.
Day, Evening and Weekend Courses are available.
