Our training programs provide the proper preparation for the type of CDL you need for the Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV), you plan to drive.

Any individual being trained in a private "One-Day" training program MUST be an Iowa resident with a valid Iowa Driver's License.  Out-of-State residents can only be trained and tested if enrolled in an extended length college course.  If this applies to you, feel free to call us for details.

Once an individual has passed the CDL written testing required and has a CDL Learner's Permit, the next step is to test with the vehicle required for the class of license.  An individual must perform a "Pre-Trip Inspection", perform "Basic Skills Maneuvers" (Backing) and perform a test "Driving" on public roadways.
