About Us

Southwest Truck Driver Training Philosophy

Our Student Is:

  • The most important person on the campus. Without them, there would be no need for the training center.
  • Not a cold enrollment statistic, but a flesh and blood human being with feelings and emotions like our own.
  • Not someone to be tolerated so that we can do our thing, they are our thing.
  • Not dependent on us; rather, we are dependent on them.

Abundance of Trainers

Unfortunately, most truck driving courses don't employ enough teachers, which means you don't receive the hands-on training you need. We never let our classes become overly crowded, so you get the best training possible.

SWTDT7

Our Beginning

In 1999, Gary P. Williams unlocked the doors to Southwest Truck Driver Training for the very first time, with just a handful of family members and friends to help in getting the school rolling. Since then, Southwest has built a good reputation throughout Arizona, Nevada and the local community - as well as with employers. Southwest Truck Driver Training has CDL training school locations in Tucson, Phoenix, and N. Las Vegas, with plans of expanding into other areas.

Now with more than 20 years in business, Southwest Truck Driver Training continues to improve and modify our curriculum and programs in order to meet current industry needs. Through things we learn in our daily operations, as well as both student and staff feedback, we continue to make improvements on a regular basis. Southwest's Road and Range Training is conducted in modern equipment using multiple transmissions, as well as empty and loaded dry van and flatbed trailers. All range training and CDL testing is done on site and in the surrounding area, making Southwest Truck Driver Training a true school-to-work truck driver training facility. We are approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation as an Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) provider.
