Class A CDL Training

Class A CDL Training at Progressive Truck Driving School

Our tractor-trailer driving programs are a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on training. These programs familiarize you with tractor-trailer systems and components. You will learn to conduct an efficient pre-trip inspection in accordance with CDL requirements and become proficient in troubleshooting minor mechanical problems. Students are also taught to couple/uncouple a tractor-trailer and develop the backing skills necessary to pass the Commercial Driver’s License test. The focus of these courses is on the safe and proper handling of semi tractor-trailers, both in restricted areas and on public streets and highways. Students are exposed to many different driving situations, such as two-lane roads and highways.


We are a member in good standing with the Commercial Vehicle Training Association (CVTA). The CVTA is an organization committed to providing training programs and a detailed code of conduct that all members must abide by to ensure that enrolled students are provided with the highest quality driver training.
