Truck Driving and Transportation Training

Truck Driving and Transportation Training

The Truck Driving and Transportation Training program prepares students to become professional over-the-road and local truck drivers. Students train and test to obtain a Commercial Driver's License and assume positions in this profession.

Using a new 23-acre driving range along with the latest, most-advanced driving simulators, students are individually instructed as they develop their driving skills, gain profession knowledge, and study lawful regulations vital to the trucking industry. Our instructors are trained and state certified to teach the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration standards for tractor-trailer drivers and are Third Party Commercial License Testers for the State of Iowa. Federal and State laws require interstate drivers be at least 21 years of age and intrastate drivers must be at least 18 years of age.


This program is approved by the Iowa Department of Transportation, Iowa Department of Education, the Iowa Motor Truck Association, and the Iowa Job Training Program.
