A CDL Is Your Gateway to Commercial Driving

At Domestic Truck Driving School, we understand the value of getting a commercial driver’s license (CDL) in San Jose, Fremont, and throughout the Bay Area. This license can open the gates to an exciting new career in local or long-haul truck driving, letting you explore America’s highways while making a potentially lucrative salary. Authorities require drivers to have a “Class A” commercial driver’s license (CDL) to operate any combination of vehicles with a 26,000-pound gross weight or more. We do offer “Class B” instruction, but highly recommend our students participating in one of our courses select our “Class A” instruction. Instruction time between the two courses is the same and having a “Class B” license will limit job and earning capability. A “Class A” license lets drivers operate trucks like semi-trailers and other vehicles with more than two axles. We can help you get your CDL and start your career in commercial driving.

Teaching Manual Transmission to All Drivers

Domestic Truck Driving School insists all graduates gain the ability to drive and pass their CDL test using a manual transmission vehicle. Many commercial driving schools limit their students’ job placement abilities by only teaching them in automatic transmission vehicles. Our school ensures you are a candidate for many more companies and driving opportunities with our manual transmission instruction. Students not trained and instructed on trucks with manual transmission will have a restriction placed on their Class A CDL. Many reputable trucking companies won’t consider hiring drivers if they cannot operate a manual transmission vehicle, so we cover this skill with comprehensive coursework.
