The Tri-C Truck Driving Academy is unique. Unlike many other truck driving schools, Tri-C offers small class sizes, which allow us to give individualized attention during training. Furthermore, all of our trucks have been completely redesigned to enhance student safety and learning as we ensure our students train in a safe and healthy environment.
Truck driving schools around the country are offering CDL training programs that are specifically designed to meet your needs – we pride ourselves on our small class sizes and high success rate.
160 hours of classroom and hands-on training and testing provides instruction in driver safety, transporting cargo safety, air brakes, combination vehicles, tank vehicles, and hazardous materials. Training includes pre-trip vehicle inspection, vehicle control, and on-road driving (required for skills testing).
We also introduce students to the new CSA methodology for scoring carriers and drivers, where any safety violations are organized into the seven BASICs.
This program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Public Safety as a CDL Driver Training School.
