GET SKILLS THROUGH CLASSROOM TRAINING AND DRIVING PRACTICE
To ensure that students acquire the knowledge and experience necessary to be successful in the field, the majority, if not all, truck driving schools mandate that you spend a specific amount of hours both in the classroom and on the road. Basic controls, vehicle inspections, shifting, speed control, turning, docking, hazard prevention, accident procedures, and more are all covered in training.
Depending on the type of commercial driver's license (CDL) you wish to obtain, your training will take a certain amount of time. Your overall training period should last three to four weeks. New Sound Trucking School offers CDL-A Manual and Automatic, CDL-B, Passengers Endorsement, Tanker Endorsement, and Hazmat Endorsement programs.
PREPARE FOR AND SUCCEED IN YOUR CDL EXAM
Training programs can aid in exam preparation, but cannot ensure success. It's best to go over some of the written material again before your test is scheduled. Consider using study aids, downloading the CDL manual from the DMV website in your state, making flashcards, and taking practice exams to increase your chances of passing the exam.
