Truck Driving


This course is designed to provide classroom work, yard driving, and road driving experiences designed to meet the needs of the trucking industry. Students are taught to drive defensively and to have the knowledge necessary to operate the vehicle as well as abiding by all local, state and federal regulations. Information is presented which will prepare the student for both the written and skills portions of the commercial drivers license (CDL) examination.

The mission of the Truck Driving Program is to prepare students for “entry-level” employment as tractor-trailer drivers by providing the identi­fied knowledge and performance skills neces­sary to pass the Commercial Driver’s test. The course consists of 222 hours of intensive class­room and behind-the-wheel training that builds skills in safety practices, operation and maintenance of vehicles and non-vehicle activities in trucking.
