Courses, Fees, and Testing

Hourly training works well for people with some previous experience, but do not yet have their CDL. What do you need to learn before your CDL Skills Test? Pre-trip inspections? Backing maneuvers? Shifting a 10-speed tractor? Hourly training is 1-on-1, just you and one of our instructors. If your knowledge of any of the above subjects is limited, you will probably need more than one hour of training.


CDL PRE-TRIP Inspection Class

Every CDL Skills Test includes a vehicle inspection. Students learn to inspect the entire tractor and trailer, but are only required to inspect a portion for the test. The class covers the following:

  • Engine Compartment + 1 Axle
  • Side of Vehicle + 1 Axle
  • Connections and Trailer + 1 Axle
  • External Light Check
  • In-Cab, Engine Start, and Air Brake Check
