Alliance School Of Trucking CDL Training

Alliance School of Trucking was founded in 2007 by Emmit Marshall. The owner has over 25 years of experience in commercial driving and driver education. Alliance offers one student per truck while training, a benefit almost unheard of in CDL schools. Another unique benefit is the school's online classroom. Students can complete a portion of their classroom training on the school's website.
