Extensive programs for CDL-A, CDL-B, and Refresher

  • CDL-A: Learn to drive large commercial vehicles, such as tractor trailers. This six-week course provides classroom instruction, yard/field maneuvers and behind-the-wheel/ observation training. After completing the 240-hour course, students will be prepared to obtain their Class A commercial driver’s license. Students participate in classroom training as well as behind-the-wheel training in the yard and open road. Tuition is $4,295.
  • CDL-B: Learn to drive commercial vehicles such as delivery and utility trucks. This two-week course provides classroom instruction, yard/field maneuvers and behind-the-wheel/observation training for any single vehicle with gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more, or any vehicle trailer not in excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR. Students must have their Class B permit before the start of class, which includes general knowledge and air brakes test at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Tuition is $2,195.
  • Professional Truck Driving Refresher: Do you have a CDL Class A but have been off the road for 12 months or more? Have you acquired a CDL Class A license but not yet gone to work within 60 days of your graduation date? If so, employers may require you to attend a CDL refresher course. This 40-hour refresher course is designed to reinforce key requirements and driving habits necessary for safe operation of Class A vehicles to help you get back on the road and driving again. Tuition is $1,100.

Classes for all programs are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Tuition assistance is available via grants, scholarships, loans through FAFSA, a tuition payment plan, part-time employment, and veterans' benefits, as well as an income tax credit for tuition paid to South Carolina colleges and universities. This is a unique perk offered by the State of South Carolina.

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
