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.

CDL:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
