If you want to get on the road with a new career in just a few weeks, a truck driving career may be in your future. To get started, you can attend one Fall Branch school: CCD Professional Driver Training. Your education will start with a classroom portion that gives you a background in driving laws and truck parts. Once you've completed your classroom time, you can start learning how to drive. Even if you have trucking experience, but want to earn endorsements, such as HazMat, you should call them to find out what they offer.
As noted, trucking school is a fairly short commitment. You may be able to earn your Class A driver's license in just three weeks. You can often earn your Class B driver's license after just one week. Just think, before you know it, you can be behind the wheel of a big rig, cruising down the highway – without a boss standing over your shoulder!
