Truck Driving

Approved for VA funding

Shift your career into high gear!

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, opportunities for commercial truck drivers are expected to grow 21% over the next few years, which makes this a great time to embark on a rewarding, secure career in the trucking industry. Trucking companies across the country are trying desperately to fill the increasing demand for trained truck drivers and new graduates are finding themselves more valued than ever in this competitive job market. In the Alvin Community College Commercial Driving Licensing Program, students are prepared for entry-level employment in the trucking industry.

This 160-hour program provides classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel driving experience. Students will receive their CDL, "Class A" training in 4 weeks/Day classes or 8 weeks/Evening classes.
