Phoenix Truck Driving School
Our newly updated campus is located off 51st avenue just north of Buckeye Rd. Our incredible staff has the experience & skills to get you on the road to a new career in trucking.
Southwest Truck Driver Training is the only truck driver school that is not owned by a trucking company. Why does that matter? We are student focused and not worried about filling up OUR trucks. Our goal is to train exceptional drivers and assist them in finding the job placement THEY want. Come visit & tour our Phoenix campus today.
At our Phoenix school location, you have the options of earning your CDL Class A & B license, along with RV driver training and refresher courses. If you are a veteran, please visit our military page to learn about the POST 9/11 GI Bill® and how we are here to serve you.
At Southwest Truck Driver Training, we offer a lifetime job placement assistance program for all our successful graduates. We are here to ensure you receive the best training and education with the tools for you to succeed in your career for a lifetime. No matter how long ago you graduated from our school, we are here to help you find the next job in your trucking career.
If you're considering a career in trucking and you live in the Phoenix area, you're in luck: Our campus offers something that's almost unheard of in the industry—the chance to launch a career in just four weeks. That's right. One month from the day you take your first class, you could be climbing into the cab of a truck as an employee earning $45,000 a year or more, or $18, $19, $20 an hour and up.
The campus has an excellent record of success, with between 500–600 students completing one of our programs every year. About 94% of our students not only graduate and earn a license but find a job shortly after completing their training.
The campus itself is less than five years old, with brand-new facilities and state-of-the-art classrooms, sound systems, equipment, and learning materials. Our trucks, too, are the real thing. You won't get your training aboard an obsolete vehicle that's 20 or 25 years old like you would at so many other schools. Our trucks are low-mileage vehicles—full sleeper trucks with 53-foot trailers, just like the kind you'll be issued when you begin your career. Also, we train on both automatic and manual transmissions—another rarity in the industry.
When it's time to look for work, we'll be by your side. Unlike so many other schools, we're not owned by a trucking company, so you can shop your talent and training around to different employers who are in dire need of qualified drivers. We invite some of the most respected companies in the country to recruit right at our Phoenix truck-driving school. We work with both local and over-the-road carriers, and our campus, in conjunction with those in Las Vegas and Tucson, hosts as many as six job fairs per year.
At our CDL school in Phoenix, you'll learn from the best. All of our instructors are state-certified examiners with at least three years of over-the-road experience—most have five or more years under their belts. Whether you're pursuing a Class A CDL, a Class B license, RV training, a school bus or coach endorsement, or training for work in a HazMat, tanker, double or triple, you can't do better than our Phoenix campus.
When you train with us, you'll receive job assistance for the rest of your life. Our loyalties lie only with our students and graduates, and our success depends on your success.
