Registration Information

Register for the appropriate training package below.

Starting July 1, 2024 we require a $200 registration fee, which will be deducted from your total balance. (If you are using financing, are a town/city employee, or using government funds, please contact us before registering online.)

You must pay the $200 online when you register. If you want to pay the registration in person, you must set up a time to register at our office.

Starting July 1st, theory training will be included in your program. If you need to use our computers or iPads for your Theory Certificate, the first 1-3 training sessions will be dedicated to theory training. You can also complete this before your first training session. The link to the Theory training will be sent to you once your registration fee is received.

There is a convenience charge added to all credit card payments. The prices below are the in-person cash/check prices.

You will need to bring the following to your first session:

  1. Your driver's license & permit
  2. Your DOT medical card

 

PAYMENT

We require a $200 registration fee and at least 50% down before you start your first session. There is a convenience charge added to all credit card payments. The prices below are the in-person cash/check prices.

Payment in full is due prior to us booking your road test. We recommend paying the balance due by your 4th/5th session to prevent timing delays.

Refund Policy

You can upgrade or downgrade your training level, but your permit and ELDT Theory training will also need to be upgraded if moving from a CDL-B training to CDL-A training prior to training for the upgraded license.

ADDITIONALLY

You must also be able to read and speak the English language clearly and fluently in order to train with us and take your road test (see #2 from  FMCSA and DOT regulations).

Registration Links

 

Reasonable Expectations

We allow a reasonable amount of training for drivers pursuing a CDL-A on a manual 5th Wheel setup.

If you cannot drive a manual transmission or drive/backup with a trailer prior to starting here, you will be allotted time to learn both, but if they are not acquired in a timely manner, you will need to take your road test on a lower level of vehicle and tuition will not be refunded.

 

Upgrading?

If you are upgrading from a CDL-B to a CDL-A you will register for the appropriate CDL-A program that you need & we will adjust the price on the back end to $5,000.

You are required to complete all the permit, theory (Do Theory upgrade from B to A), and testing requirements as if you're getting a CDL for the first time. If you have an unrestricted CDL-B, you can train & test on an automatic truck and will keep your ability to drive a manual truck.
