Commercial Driver License (CDL)

Licensed CDL drivers are in high demand, and with a minimal investment of time and money, EA can prepare you to attain your license.  Our class sizes are small to provide an ideal student to instructor ratio.

You will learn the ins and outs of the vehicle and essential road and vehicle safety procedures in the classroom. When you take a seat behind the wheel, you will put that knowledge to the test by practicing your driving skills in a closed course and on the open road.

Depending on how quickly you acquire your learner’s permit and get your drive time in, you can be ready to test for your license in as little as eight (8) weeks.

EA offers a refresher course (CDL 110) for an additional 15 hours of driving and instruction for those who need more time behind the wheel.
