There’s a high demand for professional truck drivers, and this program will help you earn your Class B commercial driver's license. You’ll learn to operate various types of vehicles such as van body, stake body and dump body delivery trucks.

You’ll have lots of time behind the wheel learning how to maneuver trucks into tight parking spaces, through narrow alleys and up to loading platforms. You’ll develop backing and driving skills through classroom, lab, range and roadway experiences. Communications with fellow drivers, dispatchers, shippers, mechanics and law enforcement personnel will also be covered. In addition, you’ll learn how to complete the necessary paperwork and appropriate inspections. You’ll get the skills you need to hit the road.
