The average age of an Over-the-Road truck driver is 55. If you want to have a trucking company in five years, you need a plan to safely and effectively hire and train recent CDL graduates.

The CDL Finishing School program is designed to provide a structure and documented process for your green drivers. Regardless of the trainer, you’ll know the content, delivery and documentation will be the same high level of effectiveness.

CDL Finishing School effectively trains and develops recent CDL graduates into safe professional truck drivers, providing a consistent process and documentation.

CDL Finishing School builds on our online driver training and our train-the-trainer program, LLLC Instructor Certification. All of your trainers must be LLLC Certified Instructors to execute the program.

Program Overview:

  • Online Learning: CDL Finishing School Trainees start with the A-Fleet: Professional Safe Driver Course - 16 modules of online driver training courses

  • Classroom: Review concepts covered in the online portion and prepare for the closed course
  • Closed Course: Trainees demonstrate their Behind-The-Wheel skills in controlled environment before proving they’re ready for the road
