Pre-Trip Inspection

Our Services

Our classes are not like typical schools. We offer one-on-one training sessions, three hours each session. This means we can focus on you and your needs. You won't be standing around waiting for another student to finish with a truck before you can get an opportunity to get behind-the-wheel. And you won't need to quit your job to get your CDL training completed. You can start any time!

*Please Note: Our entry-level driver training (ELDT) program is only for Oregon license/permit holders. However, our other training services are not restricted to Oregon only.
