Commerical Driver's License
Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) may be taken as either a one- or two-year program. Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to earn either a Class B or Class A commercial driver’s license.
The Class B course (Year I) is open to both juniors and seniors; the Class A course (Year II) is open only to seniors. Students who successfully complete Class B training and obtain their Class B license will receive preferential admission to the Class A course, which includes extended classroom, range and road time needed to obtain a Class A license.
Students will also receive instruction and be assessed for double/triple trailer endorsement.
This program follows the state-required curriculum for commercial truck driver training. The course includes classroom, parking, and driving instruction. Students must also earn a 10-hour OSHA safety certificate.

WRVC School Philosophy
The staff of Westbrook Regional Vocational Center believes Vocational Education prepares students for entry into the labor force and/or postsecondary education. We offer all interested students a hands-on, task oriented method of instruction that develops knowledge, skills and attitudes for life and work. Our programs are designed to meet the community’s changing technology-based labor demands and the student’s need for quality meaningful employment. WRVC has regular interaction with the community and industry through advisory committees, student organizations, and service projects, which assist in keeping curriculum, methods, and materials current and relevant.
Additionally WRVC believes that ALL students should have access to Vocational Education as a component of their secondary education. We recognize students as lifelong learners and encourage early awareness of vocational and post-secondary opportunities. We reinforce interdisciplinary learning in the student’s regular educational setting and recognize Westbrook School Department’s Vision Statement as a guiding document in creating a learning environment for our students.
