How to Choose the Right Truck School

Choosing a truck driving school is an important decision to make and your first step toward starting a great new career.  The skills taught at school will be those that shape a new career behind the wheel.  There are several options available and understanding them is critical to a driver’s success.

So, how does one go about weighing the options?  Here’s a short list of key factors to consider that will make finding the right truck driving school easier.

5 Things to Look For In a Truck Driving School

School Location

Keep in mind that the best truck driving school may not be just down the road.  In fact, the cheapest, closest and most convenient school isn’t always the best option. If that’s the case, just think of traveling to school as the first road trip on the journey to becoming a truck driver.   

Quality of Training

A new driver’s skills are only as good as the training received. Western Truck School is a state-licensed and accredited (West Sacramento Campus) program that combines classroom knowledge with hands-on experience learned on the road.

Cost of Training

Find a program that offers a CDL training sponsorship or a carrier that offers tuition reimbursement. Western Truck School works with many recruiters to help determine which option is best for you.

Length of School

Steer clear of schools that promise a CDL in a week or so.  Learning to drive an 80,000lbs tractor-trailer takes some time. Western Truck School has comprehensive training programs from 4-10 weeks long.

Job Opportunity

What good is a CDL if you can’t make any money with it? Western Truck School provides job placement assistance in finding a great paying job even before CDL training is complete. 

At Western Truck School we not only offer you training for a rewarding new career in driving, we also strive to help you find a job.
