We specialize in serving veterans, and those about to be separated.

Commercial Driver School™ is a privately owned, commercial driver’s license (CDL) training school with four convenient Washington-state campuses (Auburn, Lakewood, Olympia and Port Orchard) to serve you.

The transportation industry is booming, and considered an “essential service” so we won’t likely ever be shut down. In addition, we have exceeded both State and CDC COVID-19 requirements to keep our students and staff safe during the pandemic.

We have been serving veterans for decades, and are considered by many to be one of the highest rated truck driver training schools in the country. And, because we are VA approved, you can use you at GI Bill® or possible State funds at Commercial Drive School.

Our Job Placement Assistance Program is second to none. Contact us today to learn how your next career can provide a local job with great pay and benefits…best of all – you’ll “Be Home Every Night®.”

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

  • 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!
