Our local CC here in Dallas works as the classroom study. It it partnering with International Driving Schools in Dallas. ITS is paid normal tuition and, with CC, classes are 4 weeks. One week for classroom and 3 weeks on the range at ITS. Once ITS is satisfied with your driving, you use one of their trucks for the DPS test. Just thought I'd throw that out there. I don't know if all CC's work this way. Some larger campuses might have their own trucks.

The El Paso Community College works in a similar manner. They partnered with Mesilla Valley Training Institute.

That's interesting. To tell you the truth, I hadn't considered that type of arrangement. I know a lot of community colleges have truck driving programs but I just always assumed they had their own trucks.

But as long as you can confirm that major companies are willing to hire students from a school before enrolling there then you're in fine shape. Community colleges tend to have very good truck driving courses.
