If you're considering a career as a professional truck driver, JCCC's fully-accredited Commercial Driver's License (CDL-A) training program can prepare you for a lucrative future in the growing commercial trucking industry. And our flexible class options make it easy to complete your training, even if you have a busy schedule.

JCCC offers flexible CDL training options designed to fit busy schedules. Our program combines class time, direct online study and behind-the-wheel training in a variety of course configurations.

Why earn your CDL-A?

  • Skilled truck drivers are in high demand and are sought by national companies. They can earn great starting pay — some first-year drivers earn $50,000 per year and team drivers can make more than $70,000 a year. And the industry offers great bonuses and incentives for the right positions.
  • Most truck drivers get great benefits, too, including paid time off, paid health insurance and 401K plans.
  • Truck drivers have freedom to choose. There are local driving opportunities as well as regional and long haul. And some positions offer the opportunity to drive solo while other jobs offer work in teams.
  • A CDL is a ticket to a broad future. You can drive a few years, then advance to other positions like recruiter, supervisor or dispatcher — or continue to log miles from the cab of a truck.

...JCCC's programs gave you much more one-on-one instruction time and more behind-the-wheel driving time than the programs that are offered through trucking companies.
