Class A CDL Driver Training

You’ll get there in high gear with this 200-hour Class A commercial driver license (CDL) training that’s just seven weeks long – three weeks of classroom sessions followed by four weeks of behind-the-wheel range and open road training. Plus, day and evening options are available.

Drive trucks outfitted with 10-speed non-synchronized manual transmissions with 48’ length trailers. You’ll also be prepared for hazardous (H endorsement) and doubles and triples (T endorsement) written exams at the same time.

CDL permit not required to start.

The tuition of $5,755.20 includes textbooks and CDL exam fees (including truck rental) for up to two attempts. You’re responsible for the cost of Department of Transportation (DOT) physical, drug screening and temporary permits. You’ll need to obtain and provide satisfactory results of DOT-compliant physical and drug screening – a seat in class is not guaranteed until drug screening is completed.

SSC does not guarantee a student will receive a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or employment at the completion of training.
