Earn a CDL at CC this summer

Centralia College is offering a new commercial truck driving course starting July 8. This standalone certification class includes comprehensive hands-on skill development and instruction that aligns with the Department of Transportation.
Students will maneuver a commercial vehicle in different traffic conditions; operate a tractor-trailer combination; and navigate the vehicle safely forward and backward around various obstacles. This course is designed to prepare students to take the State of Washington tests necessary to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License for the professional truck driving industry.
Prerequisites for the class are:
18 years of age or older
Pass federal Department of Transportation health and drug screening
Valid Washington State driver’s license
No DUII, hit and run, reckless, or negligent infractions within the past five years
Have no more than three moving violations in the past three years
The course runs July 8 – Aug. 30 Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and costs $4,412. Centralia College’s program is $1,000 to $2,000 less expensive than comparable training programs and allows for more practice and learning opportunities. CC has a CDL driving simulator that gives students additional practice time.
