Learn to drive the big rigs and prepare for the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) test. Companies are experiencing a shortage of drivers. PDCCC’s professional truck driving program consists of classroom instruction, various backing maneuvers, equipment and safety checks and on-the-road training. This comprehensive 160-hour program not only provides the skills you need, it also includes lifetime free job placement assistance to graduates and lifetime refresher training.
The training school length is 4 weeks for a total of 160 hours (80 hours classroom and 80 hours hands-on) at Paul D. Camp Community College’s Hobbs Suffolk Campus, 271 Kenyon Road, Suffolk, VA 23434.
