In partnership with Ancora Corporate Training, Nassau Community College (NCC) is offering a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Class A training program. Students may earn a CDL in as little as five weeks.
CDL Class A drivers transport goods between locations using tractor trailers and heavy trucks with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) capacity of more than 26,000 pounds. They often travel long distances spanning several states to deliver their cargo, and they must follow all traffic and safety regulations while making their deliveries on time. In order to pass a skills test to acquire a CDL license, students must master performing a full vehicle inspection, range maneuvers, and proper operation of the vehicle on public roadways.
This CDL Training Class A Truck Driver program provides the optimal balance between classroom learning and on the road training to better prepare students for the CDL exam. Class sizes are small and experienced instructors will provide you with insight into what it's like to be a truck driver.

Includes materials, enrollment checks (driving record, drug test, and physical), and learner’s permit fee. Scholarships are available for eligible students.
