Albina tells us, “The teachers were amazing in every way.”

Posted on June 5th, by Ted Hogan in Trucking News, What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

Truck Driver Institute is a wonderful school!!! The teachers were patient, nice and helpful. They helped me any way they could and answered all my questions.

They constantly gave me motivation which helped me on my tests. The office workers helped me with all my paperwork quickly and without delay.

I am happy to have gone to this school. I feel like it will greatly help me make great steps in my new career. Thank you! Thank you!

“Truck Driver Institute helped me learn the basics … they give you hands on training. Coming to TDI was the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

~ Billy Ray Berry Jr. graduated in November 2013 and drives for U.S. Xpress.

Put your life in gear. You can train to drive big trucks in 3 weeks.



Bobby tells us, “The road teachers do an excellent job.”

Posted on May 29th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

~ Bobby Brodie dropped by recently for a return visit to the Murfreesboro campus.

“The road teachers do an excellent job with the situations they put you it. It seems crazy when you are a student, but it doesn’t take any time on your own that you will see why they do what they do. And then, you will appreciate it greatly.

I would tell all new students when you do get on your own on the road, never trust a GPS. But when you get your first check, but a good one with truck routes. It will save you a lot of heart attacks.”

“TDI is a great place to learn your new career!”

Train to drive big trucks — you can do it. 3 weeks can change your life!



Truck Driver Institute gave me an excellent start …

~LaTravions Robinson graduated from Truck Driver Institute in January 2014 and is driving for PTL.

TDI gave me an excellent start in my trucking career. They touched on pretty much everything we go through as drivers.

The staff was very patient and explained everything clearly. Also, the class size allowed us all ample time on the range and road.

Everyone here made the process flow well — great instructors, great recruiters. I’d recommend TDI to anyone interested in starting a career as a professsional driver.



Greg tells us, “I have nothing but good things to say about TDI and the staff.”

“At Truck Driver Institute the instructors worked so well with the students.”

I drove years ago and this was not just a refresher, it covered all aspects of driving — first and foremost, running safe and legal. I have enjoyed driving since I completed school, traveling from one coast to the other, and NY to the Mexico border.

“I have heard a lot of horror stories about other schools — from drivers that said they learned nothing. I have nothing but good things to say about TDI and the Staff.”

~Greg Theobald graduated from Truck Driver Institute in Murfreesboro, Tennessee in September 2013 and drives for Werner Enterprises.



Joshua says, “TDI is the place to go if you want your CDL”.

Posted on March 21st, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

“Truck Driver Institute was a great place to go to school for my CDL. The trainers were great, they answered all my questions and helped me learn about the truck and trailer and how to handle them. They showed me different ways to back and a lot of great techniques that I still use today. All in all, TDI is the place to go if you want your CDL.”

~Joshua Key graduated from Truck Driver Institute in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, March 2013 and drives for Knight Transportation.



Dallas graduate Melissa Fiscus says, “The moment I walked into TDI I felt at ease.”

Posted on February 19th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

I would advise anyone who is trying to obtain their CDL License to attend TDI. I had attended a school in the same area as TDI and obtained my CDL license 4 months prior. They promised a License and a Job. Not only did I not get a job, but I was so afraid to drive these big trucks I don’t know how I was able to pass the test to get my license.

“The moment I walked into TDI I felt at ease.”

My recruiter Lakresha was very comforting and told me she would help me every step of the way and SHE DID! I am dyslexic and made many errors on my application and she helped me. The instructors taught me step-by-step how to drive.

I walked in an intimidated, scared, frail CDL HOLDER and walked out a “CONFIDENT PROFESSIONAL CDL … Read More »

Truck Driver Institute gave me the confidence to go anywhere in the US

Posted on January 31st, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

“TDI gave me the confidence to take a big rig out and know that I could go anywhere in the US.”

“Taking time to teach — not only how, but why to do things properly — reading mirrors, hooking air lines, sliding 5th wheel, etc. The staff was very supportive in so many ways from transportation to finance to answering questions. Very glad that I chose TDI to train me. Thanks to all (especially Sherry, Allison & Ernie).”

~ Ronnie Cope graduated from Truck Driver Institute in Murfreesboro in 2012 and drives for AAA Cooper
