Commercial Truck Driving
Course Schedule   |   Financial Aid   |   Tuition
  The Commercial Truck Driving certificate program provides basic training in the principles and skills of commercial truck operations. The program is based on the definition of a truck driver as one who operates a commercial motor vehicle of all different sizes and descriptions on all types of roads. The CTD program prepares students for the Georgia CDL Skills Exam.

Prospective students will be required to submit a DOT physical and drug test and satisfactory Motor Vehicle Report. “Satisfactory” is defined as no more than 8 points and 3 moving violations in the last 7 years and no DUI within the last 3 years. The report must be within 30 days of the first day of class. It is FMSCA regulation that these be submitted prior to the issuance of a CDL or learners permit, which is required prior to beginning in-the-truck training. Further, random drug testing is required during the course of the CTD program. Prospective students will first apply to the school and complete admissions testing before needing to submit these documents.

Commercial Truck Driving is a high-cost program and requires an increased tuition of $132 per credit hour in addition to a Fuel Surcharge of $185 and other mandatory fees. Please see our Tuition Page (link to link above) for additional details.
