Been here two weeks now, too many students not enough instructors.Spend a lot of time sitting around and if you get on the range for the day to practice backing, offset and parallel parking you get 15 to 20 min and a second turn if your lucky. Drive time 30 min if you get on the schedule for the day.

The Laredo school is only three months old. I have a great experience so far.

The downside here is the local DPS. Laredo has only one DPS that offers CDL testing. My appointment for the driving test is 21 October due to saturated schedules.

Sometimes the school sends you to Corpus Christie so that the student can test earlier.

They are building a new Celadon terminal in Laredo. If this is done the current terminal will be the school.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • 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.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
