CDL Schools

With a driver shortage that continues to grow each year, there is a high demand for truckers and drivers can make more than $72,000 a year.* At Phoenix Truck Driving School, it is our goal to help you earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL) and start your career in this growing industry. We have multiple locations and while the training programs vary slightly, each one offers a top-notch education with experienced instructors. In addition, our CDL schools offer job placement assistance so you can have a job set up before you graduate.

Albuquerque, NM

Phoenix Truck Driving School is the only CDL training program in Albuquerque that shares its location with a trucking company, Swift. This allows you to observe the daily activity at a real freight terminal. It also means that multiple truck drivers pass through the campus and are able to answer your questions and share their experiences about life on the open road.

Accelerated CDL Training

The Albuquerque campus offers accelerated truck driver training that will get you on the road in as little as four weeks. During the first week, you will be in a classroom setting. In addition to covering information for the standard CDL license test, you will learn information for the air brakes test and three endorsements: doubles/triples, hazardous materials (hazmat), and tanker.

After you pass the CDL test, you will gain experience operating a tractor-trailer under the supervision of skilled instructors. It is our goal to give you the confidence you need to safely operate a commercial vehicle. You will become familiar with the cab as well as pre-trip and post-trip inspections. This prepares you for the skills test portion of the CDL exam.
