Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Training
Truck Driver (CDL)Training
Customized Training at Ridgewater College provides a comprehensive Truck Driver Training program for individuals looking to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). Our program meets all of the requirements established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for Entry Level Driver Training.
CDL Training at Ridgewater College is a unique blend of online and hands-on training that prepares students to pass the State CDL exams (written and driving) by delivering a very high-quality training experience in a convenient and efficient program structure. Our model focuses on developing competency to perform the tasks required of a commercial vehicle operator instead of meeting a required number of hours. We also complete the hands-on portion of the training in an individualized setting, with one student meeting with one instructor. This one-on-one model ensures that the student is actively learning during their time spent with the instructor, and allows us to focus on the specific areas each student needs to work on in order to pass the state driving examination.
