Q: How old do I have to be to get my CDL?
A: You must be 18 years of age and have a regular Class D Driver’s License for at least one year. You cannot drive across state lines until you have reached age 21.
Q: How long does it take to complete the course?
A: Our shortest course is one week long, but it also depends on if you qualify for that course. It typically takes about 3 to 4 weeks to complete the training.
Q: How often do classes start at Top Gun Truck Driving Academy?
A: We start classes every other Monday. However, because of the way our course is designed, we can start a student any day of the week that we are open for classes. Our schedule is flexible to fit the needs of the students.
Q: How many days will I be in the classroom?
A: This is where our classes differ greatly from other schools. Each student can expect to spend a portion of each day in each training section. This way the student is not sitting in a classroom all day or in a truck all day either. Breaking up these training sessions gives a student time to absorb the new information in-between sections. This keeps students more involved and more likely to learn the needed information.
Q: How many days will I be attending the course?
A: Attendance is dependent on each course and the needs of the student. However, our regular classes run Monday through Thursday. We start at 7:00 am and stay until 5:00 pm.
Q: What do I need to start class?
A: You will need a Class A Permit and a Class D License. Top Gun Truck Driving Academy will assist you in obtaining everything else you need to obtain a Class A CDL.
