Class A CDL Driving
Heavy truck and tractor-trailer drivers with a commercial driver’s license (CDL) transport goods from one location to another. Driver schedules can vary widely depending on the type of route they travel. Drivers can travel local routes that can be completed within a day, or they can be assigned to longer trips that span several states and require several days on the road. Commercial drivers are required to adhere to state and federal safety regulations, and perform a variety of functions aside from driving. Drivers are responsible for securing cargo for transport, inspecting their vehicles before and after a trip, identifying and reporting mechanical problems, and maintaining a log of their hours.
At Taylor College, you will gain valuable tools and training including:
