What Do Our Students Say About Us?


The Taylors are Team Drivers and Both Trained at TDI.

Posted on September 26th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

Marvell Taylor is a former student who trained with Truck Driver Institute a few years ago. His wife, Janet, trained with us this summer and they are team drivers for U.S. Xpress. Recently they dropped by the training facility in Murfreesboro for a visit.

TDI is a very good school. Staff, personnel and recruiters were all very, very helpful. If you want to start truck driving, this is a school I would recommend to anyone. They go out of their way to the fullest. Thank you very much to everyone (Ernie, Kevin, and Joe, Mike and Sherry in the office, and Melissa). Thank you again for everything. This will always be my 2nd home.

Hands On Truck Driver Training

Unlike many trucking schools that spend a significant amount of time in the classroom, at Truck Driver Institute we do not believe you can learn to drive a truck unless you’re in a truck. We do not use simulators or video games to train – we use industry-approved tractor trailer combinations.

Personalized Instruction

At Truck Driver Institute, you’re more than just a number to us. We show each and every student the necessary attention to ensure that they understand each driving lesson.

Class sizes are small, so each student gets plenty of time with the instructor to ensure that they are fully-prepared for the Commercial Driver’s License exam at the end of your … Read More »
