What to Expect

When you leave our school with your CDL A in hand, you will begin working for the carrier of your choice. 

At your new carrier you can expect: 

  • Continued driver training – We only work with companies who will continue your training to master and refine your driving skills. New driver training programs last anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months. During your continued training with the company where you choose, you will be paid training pay. 
  • You will make a starting salary of $40K or more your first year trucking. 
  • We work with many carriers who provide tuition reimbursement to help you pay back any loans. In place of tuition reimbursement, a few of the carriers we work with offer sign-on bonuses that you can use to pay for any loans as well. 
  • When you leave, we will send you a graduation certificate, so you can brag about your achievement – and to show any potential employer that you completed a 160 hour course. We will also provide you a Transcript, and contact information in case you ever need a new transcript or certificate down the road. We offer our graduates re-printed transcripts and certificates for free if they choose to accept the electronic version.
