This is an entry-level tractor-trailer driver course. The primary goal of the program is to train the student driver to obtain a Commercial Driver License. Supervised training is used as a reliable way of teaching the special skills required to safely and legally operate various types of tractor-trailer combinations (van trailer, tanker, doubles, and triples). The curriculum incorporates general theories of tractor-trailer operation including proper maintenance, pre-trip inspections, daily log requirements, professional tractor-trailer maneuvers (basic skills) and field trips (driving the rig) throughout the Four Corners area. Graduates can seek employment as professional over-the-road drivers, drivers for local companies, or establish their own trucking company.

The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) program is a six week program. Two sessions are offered each semester. Class size is limited and students are enrolled on a first come, first served basis. Students must be at least 18 years old and possess a current New Mexico driver’s license and a DUI education certificate (if required), current DOT medical card, birth certificate, copy of NM Dept. MVD record, and proof of New Mexico residence before applying to the commercial driver license program. Students who wish to obtain additional certification for hauling hazardous materials must be 21 years of age. After satisfactory completion of this training program, New Mexico state CDL examinations are given on-site.
