Are you ready to become a truck driver and travel all over Ohio? Depending on what type of job you get, you may be able to return home every weekend or every evening. In Galion, there is one truck driving school: Crist CDI Training Center.
The program at Crist CDI Training Center is meant to prepare you for both the written and skills exams required to earn a commercial driver's license. After getting a good handle on driving laws and truck components, you get to put your knowledge to the test behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer. You get to work one-on-one with your instructor for driving time.
