Truck Driver Training

Truck Driver training

Businesses and the economy rely on professional truck drivers to transport goods and materials safely and in a timely manner. Truck drivers often work with manufacturing plants, distribution centers and retail facilities. They must perform inspection of their vehicles and some may even perform preventative maintenance. Depending on their specific job, some truckers are responsible for planning their routes. Truck drivers often enjoy lives of independence and financial security.

  • Train with industry professionals to learn how to drive trucks properly
  • Prepare to pass the Illinois Class-A commercial driver’s license (CDL) test in four weeks
  • Receive guidance on the job selection process and job placement assistance
  • Meet truck driver recruiters and explore various career options
