From Our Students

"I would like to take a minute and thank you Tom and Joe for your training that led to my CDL Class B!! It was snowing all day but you and Joe got out there and kept the course clear so the testing could continue. You and Joe did a fine job getting me ready for the testing on that day. If I am ever asked where I would recommend CDL training, I would be very pleased to forward your schools name and number. Your knowledge and delivery in classroom plus Joe's patience and motivation on the course were perfect. My hats off to your school and to your continued success at being a "leader in CDL training" way ahead of any other!! My deepest thanks to you and Joe."

"Well, me and Johnnyfer Gaspard are all done with Con-way rigorous orientation multiple maneuvers ... skidpad and all. We have a load of machine assemblies on skids in 53 ft dry van going from MO to NH. Its a sealed load. I am using many of the skills I learned from you and Joe. I am emailing you from my upper bunk in an International truck. I backed this beauty in between two other trucks here at this 100 plus truck stop with no problems at all. It has a great bunk heating system ... and all sorts of great things to make driving comfortable, safe, etc. To many options to list here. I love the Qualcom, it's great for logs, etc. Well, take care for now. I am learning so much. It's a great company. Thanks for all your help."

"Hey tom, just wanted to say thank you again for the training. I work for Stevens Transport in Dallas and four trainers fought over who was going to go on the road with me cause of how well I was trained and they knew I was already able to do their work. I am well ahead of the other people who came for the job. I have traveled 7000 miles in 14 days so far. I'm achieving 8.2 mpgs which I am told is very amazing for a new driver. Thank you for all you have taught me."

I am writing this note to personally thank you, Tom, and Joe for all your patience and help during my training at your school. I want to recognize the fact that you and your staff are committed to making sure your students become excellent truck drivers and go the extra mile to make sure it happens. Your school provided me with an excellent opportunity for a career change. A year ago I was laid off from my job and it has been a tough year for my family. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend your school over the last two months and I am thankful to all of you for making sure I obtained all of my certificates. When I needed extra help you were more than willing to help me with extra practice, patience, and knowledge and I am very thankful for that. Your school provides new drivers with access to your extensive knowledge and a variety of vehicles to train with. I would highly recommend your school to anyone looking to obtain their CDL. Thank you,

I want to thank you, Tom and Joe for a terrific training program. All of you have established, in my opinion, one of the best training programs out there. You are all dedicated in making sure your graduates are well trained to get behind the wheel of a big rig. Tom and Joe will spend extra time with students if it is needed to make sure they can be fully ready to drive when they graduate. You have shown me that you are dedicated to your business by purchasing several new trucks while I was attending your class. Keep up the excellent work. Thanks again,

I just wanted to thank you yet again for all that you did for me to be able to test for my B. You and your staff were great and very accommodating. You will be highly recommended by me to anyone looking for a CDL. I have a lot of ties in the fire service and there are always a lot of people looking for their 2Q endorsement and people are always telling them to get their class B instead. I will always recommend you guys to take your full Class B course.
Thanks again Tom,
