Class A CDL Training Program

Ohio Business College’s Truck Driving Academy offers instruction to students seeking to obtain a Class A Commercial Driver’s License. Our Class A CDL training program enters students into the commercial driver field as qualified second-seat (trainee) tractor-trailer drivers. Students who meet the 160-hour Class A CDL course requirements – including five days of classroom instruction, driving range practice, and on-road instruction – will become licensed commercial tractor-trailer drivers.

Classes start every other Monday, with weekend classes available.

Our Class A CDL training program is designed to prepare students for entry into the commercial driver field as qualified entry level second-seat (trainee) tractor-trailer drivers. Working in the classroom, on a protected driving range, and on the road with an instructor, students will build the skills necessary to successfully operate a commercial tractor-trailer through our CDL classes in Ohio.

Program Objectives

  • Students learn, practice, and demonstrate the theoretical skills required to safely operate commercial vehicles, including how to inspect commercial vehicles prior to use and while driving.
