The Class A Commercial Driver License program is designed to provide each student with a basic knowledge of the requirements for a commercial driver’s license and pursue entry-level employment in the trucking industry as a driver. Southwest Truck Driver Training’s program is structured to give you sufficient behind-the-wheel driving time for the development of the practical skills necessary to obtain a Class A CDL and begin your trucking career.

And it’s not all classroom time. Depending on the Class A CDL program you choose — our 120-hour group training program or our 160-hour program — up to two-thirds of your time in our CDL license school is committed to hands-on skills training on the road or at our state-of-the-art truck driving range. You’ll spend 40-80 hours in the classroom learning everything you need to plan trips, read maps, track hours of service, spot hazards, develop defensive driving habits, handle and lockdown cargo and adhere to rules and regulations (FMCSR). The other 80 hours of your program is devoted to range or road operations, learning how to conduct pre-trip inspections, backing, city driving, basic control, visual search, speed and space management, progressive shifting and extreme driving.

In short, you’ll learn everything you need to know jumpstart your future and get you on the road to a long-haul trucking career. The program concludes with a third-party DMB test administered on site.
