Class “B” Driving
Commercial Class “B” Driving
150 hrs | WEST CAMPUS ONLY!
The Commercial Class “B” Driving program will prepare students for entry-level employment as a professional local truck driver. Upon successful completion of the program, which includes 200 miles of local and highway driving, Commercial Class “B” Driving students will receive a technical certificate, and will be able to test at our facility for their Class “B” Commercial Drivers License (CDL). Commercial Class “B” Driving is a job preparatory program that instructs students in:
- Proper loading and securing of cargo
- Pre-Trip/Road inspection
- Employability skills
Commercial Class “B” Driving students will be instructed daily as they maneuver around our multidirectional driving range for approximately the first half of the program. They will practice concepts previously covered in the classroom and the basic procedures needed to safely operate large 24 ft. trucks prior to being taken on the road. The remaining portion of the Commercial Class “B” Driving program will be spent on driving on all different types of highways. Although the main emphasis will be on driving, time will be spent each week in the classroom learning defensive driving and extreme weather driving techniques.
