“TDI helped me get my CDL. The staff helped me amazingly. They gave me hope when no one would hire me, and finally I found a job with TransAm. I’m proud to say now TDI helped me find the job of my life. Thank you, TDI. And a special thanks to Sherry for all your help.”

Zach Posted A Video Blog While He Was Training With Us At TDI Milton

Posted on March 17th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off on Zach Posted A Video Blog While He Was Training With Us At TDI Milton

Posting under the handle tallyboytrucker5, Zachery Yarbrough recorded a video blog which he uploaded to YouTube while he was training with us in April 2013 at Truck Driver Institute in Milton, Florida.

The YouTube videos capture Zach’s thoughts and experiences as he was working his way through his CDL training and testing. His series of short cell phone videos are un-edited, authentic, and refreshingly honest. We chatted recently with Zach on the phone and said he’d be happy for us to link to his videos — he said there might be a little cussin’ and fussin’ from him contained in the videos, but it shouldn’t be too bad.

We wish Zach best of luck and safe travel on the highways. And, we thought you might be interested to check out his videos for yourself:

Stacy tells us, “I have never been in an 18-wheeler before.”

Posted on March 13th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off on Stacy tells us, “I have never been in an 18-wheeler before.”

I’m a 45-year-old woman. I wanted a change in my life. So, I decided to go to truck driving school. I found one in Milton, Fl.

I have never been in an 18-wheeler before. My instructors were great. I was having so much fun, I got my son, Joshua Holley, interested in it. So he signed up. Both of us were in school at the same time.

I have had some struggles. I have fought some trucks, kicked some tires, and yes, I have called the trucks some names. No one at the school would let me give up.

So to all my instructors, Mr. Woody, Mr. Willy, Mr. Wayne, Mr. Alex, Mr. Mike, Miss Sherry and to everyone in the office, thank you all.

~Stacy Holley graduated from Truck Driver Institute in Milton, Florida on March 6, 2015

“You have numerous job offers prior to finishing the course.”

Posted on March 11th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off on “You have numerous job offers prior to finishing the course.”

TDI office staff was extremely prompt, courteous and professional in the process of preparing to attend the school, as well as making the financial easy as possible.

Instructors were very informative and patient while teaching beginner drivers.

I plan on referring anyone interested to TDI — call Sherry in Milton, she is awesome! Also the only school I have ever been to where you have numerous job offers prior to finishing the course.

“Thank you TDI for helping me attain my dream job!”

Posted on March 11th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off on “Thank you TDI for helping me attain my dream job!”

After graduating from Truck Driver Institute, I chose to drive OTR with Covenant Transport. The placement with them afforded me the opportunity to team with other skilled students and maximize my salary.

Between my co-driver and myself, we average 5,000 miles per week with HazMat endorsement. Teaming with another driver keeps you running all the time. Covenant Transport out of Chattanooga has a wonderful staff and I love my fleet managers. We have trip plans assigned before we drop 95% of the time.

Thank you to the staff at TDI for helping me attain my dream job!

Some Kinds Words and a Photo from a TDI Grad

Posted on February 20th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off on Some Kinds Words and a Photo from a TDI Grad

“I graduated a while back and am an owner operator at Landstar. I do recommend TDI to people that ask about trucking all the time, also Jarvis at TDI Oxford is an excellent instructor and really cares about teaching… That’s where I graduated from was Oxford TDI. Anyway, y’all keep up the good work. TDI is way better than the schools the mega carriers have…”

~ Michael Bunt responded to one of our recent email newsletters

Felicia Berggren & Werner Operation Freedom

Posted on February 13th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off on Felicia Berggren & Werner Operation Freedom

We’d like to offer up a great big shout-out to Felicia Berggren. She is a driver and trainer for Werner Enterprises and a graduate of Truck Driver Institute in Sellersburg, Indiana.

We’re not the only ones who think Felicia is a positive image of what truck driving is all about. She was just named Women in Trucking’s February Member of the Month. In the span of just three years, she went from having to work three jobs to enrolling in truck driving school to finding an opportunity of a lifetime with Werner as the first female driver in its Operation Freedom fleet. She has a special connection and appreciation for those in the military — her father served in the Army and her brother served in the Navy.

Felicia has returned to Truck Driver Institute several times recently as a goodwill … Read More »
