Express Lane to CDL 
Are you hoping for a shortcut to get your CDL? It just doesn’t work quite that way. Truck driving requires technical training and some effort on your part to qualify for your Class A Commercial Drivers License. But Truck Driver Institute can make it easier and quicker than you might think. We can help you every step of the way, and we have students every week who receive job offers from major carriers before they ever leave our training facility.

At TDI, we train and place over 200 students a month. One of our grads went on to win the Commercial Vehicle Training Association’s first-ever “Rookie of the Year” award. You don’t produce that kind of quality by taking shortcuts. Just ask any of our employment partners!


So if you are hoping for a shortcut, we don’t know of one. But if you are looking for an express lane to a new career, we invite you to train with TDI.
