Half CDL Courses

If the life of a truck driver has always fascinated you, or if you want the opportunity to get into an exciting and lucrative career, truck driving school is a smart choice. Truck driving schools provide you with the knowledge and resources you need to prepare for a wide variety of career paths. From city buses to semis, certain vehicles require specialized training. That’s where a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) comes in. At Driving Academy, experienced instructors can help you reach your career goals one step at a time. Going to a CDL school helps open a world of opportunities, and our half courses make the journey even easier.

What Is a CDL School?

Truck driving schools help aspiring students learn important aspects of the industry and the skills they’ll need to be successful. The intent is for students to gain enough knowledge, both classroom and practical, so that they’re ready to take a job in commercial driving. Our truck driver training programs are designed to help you pass both written and road tests and ultimately obtain your CDL. Some of the things you’ll learn in our CDL training program are:

  • Driving safety inspections
  • Important rules of the road (including those specifically for truck drivers)
  • EPA regulations
  • How to drive in harsh conditions
  • Avoiding hazards while driving
  • Managing a logbook

What Are Our Half Courses?

To gain a position as a commercial truck driver, there are a few important steps to go through. For some students, Driving Academy’s full training courses are the way to go. These courses are designed for those who have yet to get their CDL permit. A CDL permit is required before an individual can practice driving commercial vehicles, much like a regular driver’s permit is required before you can drive a basic vehicle. This written test helps prove you’re ready to get behind the wheel. Full courses are eight hours a day, helping students obtain their CDL permits and their licenses.

For those who have already received their CDL permits, our half courses provide a part-time learning experience that will help you get your CDL quickly. Because you’ve already received a valid CDL permit, we can trust you’re ready for hands-on practice with our trucks in the yard or on our simulator. Our half courses require four or more hours a day and include limited road test rentals. We’ll cover inspection training, basic skills, and parking maneuvers, and how to drive a truck on the road properly. Getting this practical road training is crucial for the experience you’ll need to obtain your license and excel in your career.

Once you’ve completed either of these courses, you’ll be ready to take the CDL road test. This two-and-a-half-hour exam will test your knowledge and abilities in three crucial areas: the pre-trip inspection, parking, and road driving.
