Like many other programs, Wil-Trans CDL school is free with a 1-year driving commitment, and doesn't allow for any other payment methods. So keep in mind you'll be on the hook for the whole amount if you break the contract.

Lunch is the only meal covered, but is made up with the weekly advance, and well worth the $25/week repayment.

Wil-Trans CDL Academy Training Schedule and Itinerary

Describe the CDL school itinerary:

Arrive on a Monday morning for drug screens/physicals and prepare with in-house instructors to take the CDL permit test. Once you have your CDL permit, you get in a truck and begin hands-on training with trainers. Covered will be shifting, vehicle inspections, backing maneuvers, and safe driving.

Friday, you hit the road with your personal CDL Instructor for one-on-one, on-the-job training. You will spend the next two weeks over-the-road working on your pre-trip, backing, and driving skills. You will receive a minimum of 75 hours behind-the-wheel drive time and 120 hours of total instruction

After training and learning about the industry over-the-road, you will return with your instructor to take your CDL driving exam. Once you have your CDL, you complete 30,000 miles over-the-road with a trainer before getting your own truck.

Wil-Trans CDL Academy Training Schedule and Itinerary

How long is the training overall?

CDL school is 3 weeks.

How much time on the range backing up?

During your first week you will dedicate an entire day to backing skills. You will receive one-on-one training and instruction while backing up. You and your over-the-road instructor will spend time working on backing before you leave on Friday to make sure you are both comfortable before you head out.

After you hit the road, the student and trainer will be asked for weekly evaluations in multiple categories to ensure there is a sufficient amount of hands-on training in backing.
