What Should I Expect from Truck Driving School?

Understanding the Truck Driving School Process

If you are thinking about becoming a Class A CDL driver, it is suggested that you go through training courses. Training provides both classroom training to help pass the written portion of the exam, and practice driving for the behind-the-wheel portion. DriveCo CDL Learning Center provides training in both of these areas during a four-week, 160-hours, full-time program in Gary, Indiana. There is no prior experience or knowledge necessary to start your training.

What will I Learn in the Classroom?

Students will learn all the materials necessary to pass the Indiana Commercial Driver’s License Test. Topics include but not limited to; truck parts and terminology, Department of Transportation rules and regulations, maps, and other reference materials as well as key principles of safe driving. Classes begin every two weeks.
