About Phoenix Truck Driving School

Phoenix Truck Driving School is a group of educational institutions where students can earn their commercial driver’s license (CDL).

We have locations in Arizona, Texas, and New Meixco and are committed to helping you prepare for your truck driving career.

We are affiliated with the following organizations:

  • American Trucking Associations (ATA)

  • National Safety Council
  • Driver Employer Council of America
  • Commercial Vehicle Training Association (CVTA)

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 $76,000 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.

The training at each of our campuses vary slightly, so we recommend consulting our programs page for more detailed information. Some of our campuses offer accelerated training so you can get on the road in as little as four weeks while some offer longer programs.
