Earl L. Henderson Trucking Reviews

What type of drug screening they do? UA or Hair? I'm married and trying to provide for my family

So I have completed the Henderson Driving Academy. I came out to Henderson on Sept. 14 2015. When you first get there you do your orientation, DOT Physical and drug screen. It is all done on the Monday that you arrive. Then from Tuesday thru Wednesday you study for your CDL permit and then on Thursday you go to the DMV and take the Illinois written driving test and the CDL test which includes, general knowledge, air brakes, and combination vehicles. Once you have past you will spend 4 weeks in the yard practicing straight backing, off set backing and parallel parking. Also thru out your weeks in the yard you will do on the road driving to practicing your shifting and controlling a tractor trailer on the road with other vehicles. Then they will take you to the DMV and you will do your CDL test. Once you complete the yard training and receive you CDL you will do 6 weeks with a driver trainer and get paid while your with your driver trainer. Sounds easy but if your not use to driving then it can be stressful some days. The instructors are great and very motivated. It took me a little longer then for weeks to get my CDL but at the end of the day I got them. Its a great driving school to go to especially if you can not afford the upfront out of pocket cost. Once you get behind the wheel and start driving with your trainer then you began to pay back $50 a week for 52 weeks as long as you stay with the school the whole first year.
