Las Vegas Truck Driving School
Southwest Truck Driver Training is the only truck driver school that is not owned by a trucking company. Why does that matter? We are student focused and not worried about filling up OUR trucks. Our goal is to train exceptional drivers and assist them in finding the job placement THEY want. Come vist our Las Vegas campus today.
At our North Las Vegas school location, you have several options for earning your CDL in either the Class A or Class B, a passenger bus or completing a CDL refresher course or RV driver training course. If you are a veteran, please visit our military page to learn about the POST 9/11 GI Bill® and how we are here to serve you.
At Southwest Truck Driver Training, we offer a lifetime Career Servicet assistance program for all our successful graduates. We are here to ensure you receive the best training and education with the tools for you to succeed in your career for a lifetime. Whether you graduated from our school 20 years ago or as recently as a few months, we are here to help you find the next job in your trucking career.
About Our Las Vegas Campus
Our Las Vegas campus represents SWTDT's expansion out of Arizona and into the larger Southwest as a regional force. If you're looking for a CDL school in Las Vegas, we'll get you trained, working, and driving in the most efficient way possible..
In just four weeks you could be making your first pre-trip preparations as a Class A or Class B driver on your inaugural route or over-the-road run. Nine out of 10 of our students, about 350 to 450 aspiring drivers every year, not only complete our program but earn their licenses and find work just a short time after they graduate with many starting the employment process while they are still in school. Drivers earn an average of $45,000 a year, the equivalent of $20 an hour, starting salary right out of school. Sometimes even more!
Our driving school in Las Vegas is family-owned and operated and our instructors are state-certified. We never have more than four students per instructor during the hands-on portion of your training, so you will get personalized instruction. Unlike so many schools that train their students on out of date, old vehicles, we use newer, low-mileage trucks. Our class A vehicles are full sleeper tractors with 53-foot trailers, just like the ones you will most likely drive when you start your career. We also stand out for providing real-world, hands-on training on both Manuals and Automated Manual transmissions. Many truck driving schools cannot say the same.
Driving Jobs in Las Vegas
We are not owned by a trucking company, so our allegiance is only to our student. When you train with SWTDT, you will benefit from our relationships. Some of the biggest and and most respected trucking companies in America and in some cases across the entire North American continent are eager for the chance to present to our students because of our reputation for turning talented students into capable, qualified drivers. We welcome these companies as well as others to recruit to our students and graduates and our North Las Vegas campus holds several job fairs each year.
Our Partners Include
May Trucking, Werner Enterprises, Covenant Transport, Swift Transportation, DOT Transportation and Schneider National. They are all employee-first companies, which is why we invite them to recruit on our campuses. We also work with over 100 Local carriers and employers so let us help you find the right place to drive!
