Because CT CDL training is 1-on-1, each students schedule and availability will effect the duration of the training. The full class CDL A training can be completed in as little as 6 weeks. Participants will have the option to take a Free Evaluation if there is some relevant driving experience that will open the option for a shorter "refresher" program.
Students will be provided with practical direction and study materials to obtain the following endorsements: Hazardous Materials, Tanker, Combination Vehicles, TWIC, and Passenger (for bus).
