Mid Michigan Community College CDL Training

About Mid Michigan Community College
Commercial Drivers License (CDL) Class A Program

MMCC's Commercial Drivers License Program combines classroom and hands-on training to prepare students for acquiring their Class-A CDL. Each student learns key functions of vehicle systems, including diesel engines, auxiliary systems, brakes, drive train coupling systems, suspension and the importance of each for safe and efficient operation.

Also students will learn about Federal and State requirements, and the need for permits. Finally, students will drive on the range, as well as on a public roadway, to practice maneuvers and operations to learn skills in those areas.
