Hello everyone!

I just got my CDL and I could not be happier! I had so much doubt about trucking that I had for many years to get my CDL. I was not sure if I was even capable of passing the test that alone drive a tractor trailer. I did my research and went to couple of schools nearby but in some places, I left with more questions than answers. When I went to smith and solomon they were honest and upfront with me. They told me about different possibilities as a professional trucker, and the staff made me feel welcome and motivated.

For some people it's very easy to change careers and go do the things they want. I had many inconveniences on the way, but I was determined to achieve my dream career. The instructors are not sweet nor do they babysit anyone, they are knowledgeable and professional, but as a student, you need to have the dedication and commitment to learn and get your CDL.

I got my CDL in just four weeks, thanks to the motivation of the staff and all I learned from the instructors!

Thanks Smith & Solomon!

if you want to get your CDL I highly recommend smith and solomon.

I PASSED At Smith & Solomon in Philadelphia

I passed my CDL exam today! I failed to manage the maneuvers at Trainco in July and quit on the last day (two-week course 120 hours total) because I was nowhere near managing the manuevers. I kept going and went through Smith & Solomon in Philadelphia. I qualified on an automatic. I mentioned back in August the I "could not" learn to shift a 10 speed. Some people can and some can't. Why go through the difficulty and frustration when all the companies I am applying to have mostly or all automatics anyway (Werner Enterprises is now 100% auto, Schneider at least 70%, US Xpress either all auto or transitiong their fleet to auto. Werner spenty $500 Million to switch.) Auto is the way of the future. No clutches to replace and manual keeps people from pursuing the life.

I went to Smith & Solomon in Philly and I could not be happier. all the instructors guided me through the program to achieve my CDL. There are many schools out there, but very few care about your education and your future as a driver, as they do. Kiki, Vanessa, Lydia and all the instructors were very motivating while I was in school.

Also now you graduated you will relate to my experience, being a smith and solomon graduate has open many doors for me. When people (recruiters) ask me where I got my CDL they know Smith and Solomon driver training curriculum.

Good luck to you!
