TRUCK DRIVER TRAINING
Our training class is four weeks long held Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Nights and weekends classes are also available. Both classes consist of the same 160 hour Class “A” CDL truck driver training curriculum.
When enrolled in our Omaha driving school you will train in a conventional tractor with a 53′ dry van trailer. You will begin driving soon after starting class, spending part of each day in the classroom and the remainder in the field. Hands on training will include driving in downtown, urban, industrial, and interstate situations. Students will practice backing skills as well as vehicle inspection skills. These are real world driving and backing situations, not simulations on a closed course. Custom Diesel has three Third Party examiners who may administer your road test and the basic control skills test. Our equipment is available for truck driver testing. If you require additional training, a reasonable amount will be provided at no additional cost.
The classroom portion of the course prepares you for the General Knowledge, Combination Vehicle, Air Brake, Doubles/Triples, Tank Vehicle, and Hazardous Materials written exams at the Department of Motor Vehicles. We will cover the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Regulations governing the truck driver, logging (hours of service regulations), trip planning, map reading, and various other safety and operational materials.
