Jigsy and Scuba were the best instructors I could have asked for. They focused on the areas I struggled and made sure I had the confidence to get my license first shot. Andrea in the office made everything so easy when it came to paperwork and scheduling. Highly recommend for not only individuals but also for companies and municipalities as their preferred CDL school.

CDL Guys is an awesome program to get your CDL. Jiggsy and Scuba are awesome teachers! I was able to get my CDL after 4 weeks of two classes a week which was entirely due to Jiggsy and Scuba and the way Jiggsy has the system set up!! They make it like memorizing a poem… too easy. The trooper that tested me said that they have one of the best programs around!

Cdl Guys is the best cdl trainers in all of America. Jigzy, Scuba, and Andrea made getting this achievement easy as can be. Not only did they make it easy by verbally explaining everything with detail , in the cab, circle check, driving, shifting, everything was just a breeze! Highly recommend Cdl Guys over any other cdl training, their training is a fraction of the time and price of any other trainers in the area!

CDL Guys training is top notch! From the office staff Andrea and Chris to the guys in the yard, Jigsy and Scuba, everyone is invested in your success.They make an effort to train around your schedule and the training is very personalized. Only 1 or 2 students per trainer and they make sure you know the material before they get you tested. I was quite nervous before my test but everyone was supportive and gave me the confidence I needed. I would highly recommend them if you are interested in getting your commercial drivers license!

The best truck training experience I could have asked for! There’s nothing cracked, damaged, or loose about this program. Scuba and Jigsy are knowledgable instructors and have been wonderful mentors during my Class B training. Andrea and Chris in the office were very kind and supportive throughout the process in scheduling and helping out with any questions I had. All in all, this team made sure all nuts and bolts were present and secure in their training program for me to be successful going forward in my career! Cannot thank them enough!

I would highly recommend CDL guys. Being self employed it was not realistic for me to take two months off of work to go get my license. CDL guys made it easy scheduling classes and worked around my schedule. The instructors are very knowledgeable and the curriculum is on point. If you are looking to get your CDL this is the place to do it.
19:37 14 Nov 23
If you need a CDL this is the only place you need to look at. Everyone from the office, the instructors, to the owner are very helpful and accommodating.

I read a lot of reviews that start with, “ I don’t know where to start”, Well I do……….. I’ll start at the top.Chris the owner of CDL Guys @ Proturf Landscaping afforded me the opportunity to complete my CDL training and testing after another school did wrong by me. He reassured me that he will make it happen and took all my worries away.Andrea in the office is running two businesses like a fine oiled machine, securely with no leaks! From the first day of training to test day, she has it done right!Cut to the instructors, Scuba and Jigsy, the good cop, bad cop duo has a knack for understanding their student's. If there is something that you don’t understand by one they tap out and the other hops in the ring. That way of training makes it less mundane and more purposeful. The patience and knowledge they exude made training a fun learning experience!What you put into the program, they will pour out & you will walk away with a license!The CDL guys maybe a little cracked 😉 but definitely not broken and secure!Thank you all for helping me obtain my goal!Beep Beep,R.M.

I cannot recommend the CDL Guys enough! Everything about this organization is fantastic and exactly what you want if you're looking to get your CDL license.The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable about all things trucks and CDL and will give you all the tools necessary to pass your test and get your license. I came in without any prior driving/truck experience and I was able to pass my test on the first try!The front office is easy to reach, extremely helpful regarding scheduling, and do everything for you in terms of setting up your test and helping you out with whatever you need.If you're looking for a school to get you your CDL, look no further, because you've found it!

A big THANK YOU to the CDL Guys crew. Especially Jigsy and Scuba. I’m not a great at regular classroom learning and their hands on approach was very beneficial to me. On top of that my work schedule can change on a moments notice, Andrea was very accommodating without any signs of annoyance. My first class was on September 5th and I tested on November 4th passing with no issues. Top notch program!

A big shout out to some special people,Jigsy, scuba, Andrea and Steve, theses guys and girls deliver, this by far is the best CDL school in New England. This is what school is supposed to be like, from day 1 they make you feel comfortable and welcome, not just another “student “ they have the best up-to-date curriculum, and a way to breaking it down so that your truly understand it and will prepare you to pass your exam on the first test. The office is very organized and will guide you through the process by sending you reminders about your classes and exams ahead of time so you can concentrate on learning your new skills. Big thanks again guys !!!

CDL Requirements


The Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act requires every state to meet the same minimum standards for commercial driver licensing. The standards require drivers to get a Commercial Driver License (CDL) to operate any of the following commercial motor vehicles:

• A vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) in excess of 26,000 pounds.
• A combination of trailer and towing unit which exceeds 26,000 pounds GVWR with the trailer in excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR.
• A vehicle designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver.
• Any size vehicle which transports hazardous materials which requires a Hazmat placard.

Drivers are required to pass different knowledge and road tests depending on the Classifications and Endorsements they apply for and the type of license they currently hold. Before applying for a CDL license, drivers should thoroughly review the Commercial Driver Manual, which can be downloaded or is available at any DMV office.
