Michigan Truck Driving Jobs and CDL Training School Opportunity
Driver Solutions pairs qualified applicants with Michigan trucking school opportunities at a CDL training school in their area. After completing a three week CDL training school, Michigan truck drivers will hit the road with PAM Transport and begin their new trucking career.
CDL Training School Process
The ideal CDL training program will teach students everything they need to know to become a professional truck driver. Good trucking schools, like the ones Driver Solutions uses, are about three weeks long and are comprised of three different portions -- classroom, range, and road training.
The first week, students will be in the classroom learning all about general knowledge, air brakes, combination vehicles, as well as skills like trip planning, map reading, and more.
Week two, students will step into the truck and learn basic driving skills like backing and parking.
The third and final week, drivers will hit the road and drive with traffic in order to prepare for the actual state CDL skills test.
