Commercial Driver’s License A Driving Session

CDL Driving Instruction - “In the Cab” CDL truck driverClass A Driving - 30 hours 

The Class A Driving course is designed to instruct students who have already received a CDL permit and who are looking to build skills to prepare for the Class A road test and enter into the world of work. The theory associated with this practical instruction is covered in the CDL classroom course and will be used as the basis for practical driving instruction. This instruction occurs “in the cab” of ETA program trucks used for driving instruction but also used by the students to take their CDL road test.  

Flexible Driving Schedule:

The schedule for driving with the instructor is determined by matching a student to an instructor’s availability once the student is registered and a tuition is paid. This method of developing driving schedules is designed to meet the needs of both the students and the instructors. It also ensures that a consistent pattern of driving is created in order to obtain the number of training hours needed before a road test.   

Prerequisites for Course:

  • Must be at least 21 years old or 18-20 for the young adult training program.
  • Starting 7/1/23 we will only be accepting students onto our In The Cab waitlist who have taken ELDT Theory (Class A and Class B) with WSWHE BOCES. School Bus and Passenger theory will be accepted from a training provider listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website.
