What Do Our Students Say About Us?

TDI is a great school. I came here not knowing anything about trucks or even how to drive one. But in 3 weeks time, I learned how to do a pre-trip and check different truck parts for safety reasons. I learned to a drive a combination vehicle that weighs 80,000 lbs.

And best of all, I received my CDL and got a job. Everyone that works at TDI was very helpful with all of your questions, and helping you through the process to graduate. I like this school so much that I brought my wife in to get her CDL.

Roger tells us TDI gave him a great foundation and the confidence to excel …

Posted on December 24th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

Roger Nelson, Jr. dropped by and had some kind words to say:

     TDI is a great school. I learned so much in the three weeks I was there. Although it’s impossible for the staff to teach everything you need to know in three weeks, they gave me a great foundation and the confidence to excel at orientation and during my training period.

     The staff are very helpful and were there every step of the way.

     Thanks to TDI, I am now employed by Melton Truck Lines, one of the top flat-bed companies in the U.S. I am making good money already, and will only make more as time passes.

     Thanks, Woody and staff!!

Re: Student Evaluation

 

To whom it may concern,
     I attended Truck Driving Institute from 07 Oct 13 to 25 Oct 13 and would like to discuss the professionalism of the staff and my experience while in attendance. I started my own company driving a Ford F550 and will be hauling cars on a 48 foot car hauler in excess of 26,000 lbs. which DOT requirements mandate that I obtain a CDL Class A. In researching the cost of training to obtain the CDL, I found programs on the internet that were very inexpensive and came across the TDI website. I learned the program at TDI was substantially higher than other programs I was considering. It was actually so much more expensive it … Read More »
