Pro Truck Driver 160 Hours / TD107

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Pro Truck Driver (160 Hours) / TD107

This program meets the Entry Level Driver Training standards as required by the FMCSA.

The program begins with permit preparation, to prepare students to test for their CLP. Once students have gained the CLP and completed the ELDT classroom requirements, they will apply the techniques learned in the classroom to driving range, street, and highway practical exercises. Every student will practice all of the skills necessary to safely operate a tractor trailer and successfully complete the CDL Class A road exam.

Students learn and master turning, backing, and shifting skills on an 80 plus acre driving range. Once student drivers have gained experience and confidence on the driving range, students and driving instructors proceed with street driving to polish and hone students’ skills in real world situations.

All of this training is conducted in preparation of the student’s CDL skills test where students must demonstrate knowledge of the truck’s condition through a pre-trip inspection and complete a set of driving skills administered by a certified CDL examiner.
