TDI Murfreesboro CDL training graduate

Today is a great day! The start of a new career in the truck driving industry. I am so excited! But, none of this could have happened without the help of TDI in Murfreesboro, TN. I arrived at the school from Los Angeles, CA where I had already attended one week of school at Road Masters, but I was kicked out due to credit problems.

From my first phone call with Ms. Sherry, I knew I had found the best school in the industry. Upon arrival, I was greeted with a smile and treated with respect. Upon meeting the chief instructor Mr. Ernie, I knew I was in the hands of a professional who took his job very seriously. I was given excellent in-class instruction, and he shared his vast knowledge with the entire class. Although I had already earned my learners permit in California, I still learned even more from Mr. Ernie.

On week two, I met range instructor Mr. Erich who continued my training in the same fashion. Erich was very patient with the entire class, and took the time to personally show me how to maneuver trucks through straight line backing, left- and right-hand offsets, parallel backing, 90-degree alley docking, pre-trip inspections, and in-cab inspections. Erich was exceptional, never boring, and always made learning difficult tasks fun and easy!

After mastering these skills, I met with Mr. Harry – the “Road King!” – Boy was he good! I often told him he has the patience of Job while the students were grinding gears and stalling the truck on the highways or city streets.

At the end of my training, they conducted my US DOT / DMV test right there, so I didn’t have to go to any other place. Due to the training I received, I passed all of the tests with an “A” and now have my Class A CDL in my hands! WOW! What an experience!

If you’re looking for the best school in the industry, look no further than TDI in Murfreesboro, TN. They’ll put you in a great hotel, treat you with respect, teach you how to drive big trucks, and you will get your CDL.

Nobody, but NOBODY, beats these guys!
