YEARS OF EXPERIENCE BEHIND THE WHEELS
SunCoast Trucking Academy opened it's doors in 2012.
SunCoast Trucking Academy provides a safe environment for people to learn to safely operate a commercial vehicle following the Federal Motor Carrier Regulations, Florida State Laws and all the requirements provided by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. Our goal is to prepare each student to be a safe driver, thereby creating a safe environment for everyone sharing the roads. Students will study and train for the required exams administered by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, which will be evaluated and finalized by a third party state examiner.
As some are on the range, others will be out on the road working the gears. As skills progress, the challenges are increased until each student has the confidence to schedule his or her driving test. We take pride in the fact that we train all of our Students in an environment that encourages questions and opportunities for one-on-one training. This allows for a more personal experience and more time behind the wheel during the range and road training. Our Instructors have many years of experience in over-the-road driving, instructional training and state certified examination.
With new classes beginning every Monday, students are at different levels. This promotes a spirit of camaraderie among the students, as they share learning experiences and help each other work toward the excitement of embarking on their new career in the trucking industry.
