Earn Your CDL
The trucking industry is an essential part of our nation’s economy. The demand for qualified drivers continues to grow and truckers can earn more than $66,000 a year.* If you are interested in starting a career in this industry, you will first need to earn your CDL.
To obtain your commercial license, you will need to pass a CDL test. There are two parts to this exam: a written test and a road test. The driving test will be conducted with the type of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) that you intend to operate after your training is complete. You will need to understand important safety topics related to truck driving as well as how to drive a tractor-trailer.
While you can study for and pass this test without attending truck driving school, graduating from a licensed training program makes the process easier. Additionally, most employers prefer to hire drivers that have completed CDL school.
CDL School Locations
Phoenix Truck Driving School has locations in New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona. Although there are some variations in the programs offered, the training at any of our schools is high-quality and will help prepare you for your career.
We are the only truck driving school in Albuquerque with a trucking company (Swift) at the facility. This allows you to see an active terminal, giving you more exposure to the real world of trucking. Our students are encouraged to talk to the drivers that pass through to get their perspectives about the industry and their day-to-day experiences. Our Albuquerque CDL program is accelerated and can be completed in as little as four weeks.
We are planning to open a location in Flagstaff, AZ, shortly. This new school will provide the same high-quality, accelerated CDL training as our other institutions.
Phoenix Truck Driving School offers CDL training in Kingman, AZ, in partnership with Mohave Community College (MCC). You can complete classes in as little as four weeks with these accelerated classes. The curriculum is similar to our Albuquerque school and you can earn hazmat, tanker, and doubles/triples endorsements.
