How Long Does Truck Driving School Take?

A frequently asked question we hear about commercial driver license (CDL) training is "how long does truck driving school take?" The goal of any truck driving school is to get you ready for the CDL tests, and make you a safe, reliable truck driver.

While most reputable truck driving schools formulate their CDL training programs based on the model curriculum designed by the United States Department of Transportation, there are still differences in the duration of the courses offered by each school. This being the case, there is no definitive answer to how long it takes to complete truck driver training school.

Nonetheless, we can provide you with our knowledge about our sponsored truck driving schools to shed some light into the matter of the duration of truck driving school, so you can judge the merit of a particular course when scouring for truck driver training.

In short, a good estimate to the question would be between five and ten weeks. The variations in the duration arise depending on how the classes are spaced out in a week and for what class of license you are training for. The minimum amount of training time for each class can be found on our website or on your local DMVs website.

When looking at the amount of time it takes to complete truck driving school, it is important to make sure that not only the minimum training requirements are reached, but also you are completing it in a timely fashion. Even though the more hours of training you get the better your knowledge of truck driving will be, it is important to get out and start your new career as soon as you are qualified.

There are other critical matters to consider before choosing a training program than just pondering on how long does truck driving school take, like the number of hours allotted to behind-the-wheel training and practice. Depending on how long does truck driving school take to complete a training program, this figure can vary from 100 to close to 250 hours. Another critical determinant is also the class of vehicle you are being trained to operate. But the more this duration, the better can you practice your practical skills.
