Do you offer CDL renewal classes?

Yes. Please call us toll-free at 1-888-558-7120 or 253-983-0200, and we'll be happy to provide you with more details on our CDL renewal training.

I’m considering a CDL but I’m hesitant because I don’t want a job that keeps me on the road for days or weeks at a time. Is this realistic?

Yes, it sure is... We offer job placement assistance for all of our graduates, whether they're looking for long-haul or local positions. In fact, we've helped 96% of our graduates find jobs that fit their needs, preferences and CDL type. So again, this is an entirely realistic and achievable goal.

Will you help me find a job after I’ve completed my CDL training?

Yes, absolutely! Because we partner with many respected local, regional and national companies that come to us when they have job openings, we're able to provide all of our graduates with ongoing job placement assistance.

  • It was an awesome experience. From the first week of class to the last week. The teachers spend time with you and make sure you are ready come testing time. And the pre trip instructor is awesome at preparing you for your test. Thanks CDS!

  • Excellent place to learn how to drive trucks. Every teacher cares about you and wants you to come away with a license and a job! They hosted a job fair and I was able to see all the local companies that were interested in finding drivers. It was more than I expected! Highly recommend!
