If you’re interested in finding truck driving schools in Carmel, Indiana, look no further! Truck Driver Institute (TDI) is among the oldest and most respected truck driving schools in the industry, and we’re eager to get you on the road.

Whether you’re looking for a change, looking for adventure, or you’re ready to start a lucrative new career, the truck driving industry is beckoning. There’s a massive shortage of Class A CDL drivers in the United States—there’s a vacuum of about 30,000 positions. The carriers are responding by hiring full-time drivers hand-over-foot, but they still have standards as to who they pick up. With all the subpar instruction out there nowadays, established schools like TDI are worth their weight in gold.

When it comes to truck driving schools in Carmel, Indiana, TDI is the carriers’ top choice. Job placement is one of our specialties at TDI, and we have an over 80% job placement record. Our thorough job placement process begins before you arrive as we pre-screen your information with our carrier partners to see where you’d fit in best. During your training, our specialists work closely with you to help you form a clear career trajectory to make you even more hirable. We also continue working with our students after they graduate.

If you’re wondering how much it will cost to get your CDL at TDI, we’re pleased to inform you that we offer a wide range of grants, scholarships, and military discounts*. All you need to do is apply to find out whether or not you qualify.

Driving a semi-truck or any other large utility vehicle is a unique, fun, and challenging experience. That’s why we offer extensive classroom and on-the-road training at each of our campuses. After all, road safety and quality training are our top priorities.

Though our Carmel truck driving school isn’t precisely in Carmel, our Indianapolis campus proudly serves the city itself and the surrounding regions.

Don’t Live In the Indianapolis Area?

Because of our reputation as one of the best truck driving schools in Carmel, Indiana, it isn’t uncommon for people who live outside of Indianapolis or even out of state to attend our classes. We work with the nation’s top carriers, and since they’re looking for the best fresh drivers they can find, they regularly hire our TDI grads.

Live outside of Indiana? You don’t need to be a resident of Indiana to attend our truck driving school. Hundreds of out-of-state drivers have passed our 3-week course, and we’re confident you will too.
