Driving School specialized courses to operate a commercial vehicle


Driving Academy offers affordable, state-approved classroom and behind-the-wheel lessons for teens, adults (seniors included) and aspiring truck (a.k.a. CDL) drivers. Our founder and lead instructor comes from a family of teachers and professional CDL drivers. With a lifetime of driver education experience, driving is something we take very seriously.

Full Courses

Our full courses have been designed to take our students from zero to hero in driving. The full courses start off with classroom training to help our students pass the written exams, which will earn them a valid CDL permit. We will then bring our students to the yard and train them to successfully pass in the CDL road test. Our full courses also include truck rentals for the CDL test as well as our life time job placement program.

Half Courses

We have designed these courses for students who already have a CDL permit. If you have a valid CDL permit, there is no need to start off with classroom training – we will move you right into our yard training. In our yard, we will train you to pass the very difficult two-and-a-half hour CDL road test. Our yard training can be split into 3 main categories – inspection training, basic skills /parking maneuvers, and proper road driving.

Guaranteed Training Courses

Our guaranteed training courses are the most extensive courses that we offer. These courses usually include over 100 hours of training. They are full-time courses and are built for people who take their future CDL career very seriously. These courses offer extensive training and prepare you the best to pass all the written and road tests. We are so confident in the success of this course that anyone who has enrolled into this course will have unlimited road test attempts and vehicle rentals. As long as the student shows up and participates in all of our scheduled training and re-training, we will stick with them until they get a CDL.

Hourly Training

If you feel like a full or half course is too many hours for you or if you just have to refresh your skills, we do offer hourly training. Hourly training can be customized to your needs and your schedule. Give us a call for more information!

Road Test Rentals And Scheduling

Most of our training courses include a road test rental, which means you will be able to use our vehicle for the road test. However, if you feel you do not need any training, but would like us to provide you with a vehicle for the road test, we can accommodate that as well. We, as a school, can also schedule CDL road tests. In most cases, we can set up a sooner road test date than if you went to MVC to schedule one yourself. Come in person to set your road test; dates are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Truck Driver (CDL) Testimonials

“When I finished college with a degree in General business, I was unable to find a decent job in my field, so I decided to get my CDL and then my dream was to run my own company. Driving Academy not only helped me obtain my license they set me up with owning my own truck and coached me on how to run my own business. Thank you Driving Academy for being the road to my freedom!”
