your training for Commercial Driver's License at a community college is
usually a good deal. Now many community colleges that offer CDL course
has a full time curriculum.
Back in the day many community colleges that offered CDL training had long drawn out programs just on the weekend. This created a much longer wait time to get those CDL.
Now there is such high demand, things have changed. At some schools you can get trained in less than 2 months.
Make sure you do comparisons between community colleges and truck driving schools you're considering for cost, hours of class room study and time spent behind the wheel. Also find out if the time they are quoting in is the time shared with others in the truck or your time behind the wheel.
You can simply call your local community colleges to see if they offer training and if so get an itemized description of what the course includes.
