C1 Truck Driver Training

The Commercial Motor Vehicle Act of 1986 created the CDL standards to ensure each state was licensing commercial drivers in a similar fashion. To comply with these standards, training for a CDL at C1 includes a combination of classroom training and behind the wheel training on a private driving range as well as road & highway driving. All training is conducted in accordance with standards for the CDL skills test administered by a state authority at the completion of school.
