CDL Class B to CDL Class A Training

With a CDL Class A license you can drive:

Semi tractor trailers
Double and triple trailers
Tankers
Flatbeds
Any Class B and Class C vehicles


Course Length and Content: If you already have a Class B license, you can train to upgrade to a Class A license with our expedited CDL Class A course. Because you are already familiar with commercial vehicle regulations and general operation, we focus exclusively on hands-on training that will give you the skills to operate your own Class A vehicle. As part of our 80-hour course, you will spend 30 hours in observation, 16 hours in proficiency training, 16 hours in backing and maneuvering, and 18 hours on the road. All of this training takes place with certified CDL instructors. You’ll learn the details of shifting up to an 18-speed transmission, backing a trailer with a break, and completing full vehicle inspections. At the end of the course, you’ll receive a diploma, transcript, and Commercial Driver Training Certification and be prepared to take the CDL Class A test.


Our maximum class size is 12 students with a 3:1 student to instructor ratio
