160-Hour Program

Four Weeks or Ten Weekends

The 160-hour course provides you with the most drive-time, which will best prepare you for your new career in the transportation industry. Most national trucking companies have a minimum number of hours required (160) in order to meet their standards for employment. Upon completion of the course you will be provided with a 160 hour certificate recognized by national trucking companies. We have classes available for learning in manual vehicles or automatic vehicles and we start a new class every Monday.  If taking the course in a manual transmission truck, you can avoid having an automatic restricted license. ​A CDL permit and DOT medical certificate is required before beginning the 160-hour program. Contact us for study materials or assistance. ​
