The Commercial Driver’s License Class B program is your first step toward a career driving commercial vehicles. This primarily includes straight trucks though at the conclusion of the course students can pursue endorsements that would allow operation of snowplows, fuel trucks, school and tour buses. There is great demand for licensed commercial drivers and your earnings potential is high.
Students will learn pre-trip inspection, diagnosing and reporting malfunctions, handling cargo, safe operating procedures, and vehicle systems among the many topics covered. The course consists of instruction including classroom, lab and on-road driving. Class is held in the early morning hours with additional afternoon or evening driving time once a week, so it is convenient for working adults.
