While financial aid and tuition costs are both very important, it's also essential to consider what kind of education you'll get at your school of choice. Class sizes are fairly important in truck driving programs. If you're going to earn your Commercial Driver's License, you may want to look for schools with small class sizes; this gives you the opportunity to get more driving hours in. There are many schools with small class sizes in Arkansas, including North Arkansas Tech, Ozarka Tech Truck Driver Training, and Phillips Community College.

If you are planning on studying diesel technology, you may want to look for a program that offers lots of lab hours. Some schools tell you how much lab work you get; for example, lays out many lab hours you get per week in each class.
