Two recomended truck driving schools out west

by Jimmy
(Kingman,Az)

Hey everyone, this is Jimmy and I will recommend two schools. One is Advance School of Driving in Fontana, Ca. I was an instructor there in 2004. They are approved thru the state,and we were proud of our passing percentages. The other is Mohave Community College here in Kingman,Az. One student per truck with 40 hours behind the wheel.


I don't know the cost of either school, but you can find out. I believe Mohave Community College has a campus in Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City, Az. If your in the Fontana area considering a school there, be very careful of the 'fly by night' operations that operate there. just a word of advice. Jimmy

Recommended schools

Hey Collin, when I was an instructor at Advance School of driving in Fontana, we had 4 students max per truck. We also offered 1 on 1 for non state sponsored students. The school here in Kingman is 1 on 1 with 40 hours behind the wheel plus classroom. FYI Jimmy

Number of students per truck
by: Collin Barnette

Yes I think every school brags about their passing percentages. Marketing you know. But, the one thing that stuck out about your recommendation for me is one student per truck.

The school I am currently attending will cram five or six people in one truck and give each person about an hour of actual driving time. But, log and credit the books as each person spent all day driving.

ERRR! Your trying to pay attention to what you are doing and communicate with the Instructor and you've got a truck load of Ding Dongs that want to laugh and talk about their whatever.

It must be way more productive and produce better skills and drivers to have the Instructors undivided attention.
