Truck Driver Training Program

This four week course is considered a staple for training in the truck driving industry. The primary objective of this course is to ensure that students are familiar with the procedures and skills necessary while preparing to obtain a commercial driver’s license. LEARN MORE

Behind-the-Wheel Training Program

The Behind-the-Wheel Course is specially designed truck driver training for those students who are looking to save money and already possess a Class “A” commercial permit. This course is very similar to the Truck Driver Training Program; however this is 120 hours and does not include the classroom portion of the training. LEARN MORE

The Refresher Course is one that can be designed specifically for the truck driving student’s individual needs. This course can vary from 40 hours to 120 hours depending on the requirements of a potential employer. LEARN MORE

Does being “accredited” matter? Yes, it does! Here are three ways that it matters to you.

  • 1. It means accountability. CDLC was required to be approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) in order to operate as a school in California. We are held to a higher standard of service and accountability to provide quality training to you. CDLC is in good standing and stay informed on all requirements set by BPPE.
  • 2. Approval can also effect your job placement! Many trucking companies will not hire employees UNLESS they have completed training at an accredited program. Why would you pay for training if it is not going to help you get further in your career? See our job placement page for more information about ways that CDLC will assisting in your career path.
  • 3. Grant funding is ONLY available to programs that are accredited. WE ARE ACCREDITED and APPROVED through FEDERAL, STATE and COUNTY funded agencies. Many private organizations fund students for our school also. Depending on your situation, you can obtain grant funding through various county agencies like SETA, Placer County, El Dorado County, Yolo County and more. We are very thankful for our continued relationship with these agencies. For over two years, CDLC is proud to say that we SUPPORT OUR VETERANS. We are approved through the California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education (CSAAVE). We accept all chapters and would be happy to assist you in the enrollment process.
