Explore Our Program Options

The first step towards a career as a professional truck driver begins with training. Driving a tractor-trailer requires a specific level of training and knowledge. Napier Truck Driver Training has the training you need to succeed in the trucking industry!

CDL Training Options

Napier Truck Driver Training offers a variety of training options so you can find a CDL program that works best for your schedule. We offer full-time and part-time CDL course options for new students and a customizable CDL refresher course for experienced drivers.

The full-time course only takes five weeks to complete, while the part-time course can be completed in just ten weekends. The length of the CDL refresher course will depend on the drivers level of experience. The minimum allowed for the refresher course is three days. Any Napier graduate who desires additional training after graduation may qualify for enrollment in our refresher course.

Our CDL training programs include both classroom instruction and on the road training. You’ll learn important topics such as state traffic laws, accident reporting, hours of service, trip planning, vehicle inspection, federal regulations, and E-Logs. Students also get road training with an experienced driving instructor who will help students navigate essential skills such as pre-trip inspection, docking, backup maneuvers and road safety.

After Your Training

Before taking the three-part skills test, you are tested on inspection and maneuvers addressed in the CDL Manual with a qualified individual. The skills test contains a Vehicle Inspection Test, Basic Controls Test, and Road Test. After completing the skills test, you will provide the documentation to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Each state will either give you the CDL immediately or mail it to you depending on where you live.

While there are plenty of entry-level jobs available, competition is still fierce, and employers will look for the best-qualified candidates. The Napier one-on-one, hands-on training approach, and commitment to student success has helped over 10,000 students in the area become successful, safe drivers. But that’s not all, Napier also offers job placement assistance! We will help you connect with top trucking companies in the nation.
