Ready to find Indiana CDL training school options?

Pump the brakes, partner. Let’s take a quick detour down “How To Choose A Trucking School Avenue” before you floor the gas towards your next gig in trucking. When choosing CDL training in Indiana, you will want to look for a few things in the program you choose.

Be sure you consider…

Do you meet the minimum requirements?
Most trucking schools in Ohio require their students be 21 years old, have a clean driving history, able to pass a drug test, and prove they are a US citizen. If you don’t at least meet those minimums, then it will be almost impossible to get started.

But if you do, great! Let’s keep trucking…

When choosing a trucking school, be sure you look at:
Financial aid options – some schools have financing, others don’t, and sometimes you can get a company to pay for it. So be sure to look at all your school choices.
Endorsements – Do you want to earn the most a trucker can make? Then get as much training as you can. Some trucking schools offer endorsements, such as HAZMAT, Doubles/Triples, School Bus, and others, that can increase your qualifications. This can be a good way to ensure you have the most career options as well.

Job Opportunities
We’ll give many trucking schools credit: they help their students get jobs after training. However, some schools have different relationships with employers than others. Some companies, such as CR England trucking, have their own training programs they hire drivers directly from. This can be one benefit to company owned schools.
