Skilled drivers are in high demand! Begin your new career supporting the supply chain and have the flexibility to work locally, regionally or nationally. Class A commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders are qualified to operate tractor-trailers, truck and trailer combinations, dump trucks, straight trucks, ready mix trucks, and waste management trucks - essentially any commercial vehicle on the road with exception of passenger vehicles that require a CDL. Training program consists of classroom instruction, equipment and safety checks, manual shifting skills, range practice in various backing maneuvers, and on-the-road driving. Upon successful completion of this course, students with a valid CDL learner’s permit are eligible to sit for the behind-the-wheel road exam for the Commercial Driver’s License-Class A offered by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Onsite learner’s permit testing and behind-the-wheel road exam are offered for an additional fee.
Note: Additional skills practice may be required before students are approved to attempt behind-the-wheel road exam. Cost of learner’s permit, VDOT physical exam and urine drug screen are not included in program tuition. Program offered in partnership with Shipper’s Choice of Virginia. See pre-admissions requirements for all CDL programs.
