Hands-On and Behind the Wheel Field Training

Once you have finished the classroom training, students will put the skills and techniques learned to work. This part of the Class A CDL training is hands-on and teaches maneuvering and inspection (inlcuding inspection measures).

Road Training


Students will practice on the road with one of NETTTS' driving instructors who come from the industry and have experience behind the wheel.

 

Instructors will take students on different driving routes around town and on the highway. Driving side-by-side with a trainer, students will learn upshifting and downshifting to help give the hands on experience and confidence needed for the exam and the job.

 

*** Companies who wish to use their own trucks (i.e. bucket trucks with a trailer), NETTTS must approve the vehicle.  In addition, all company vehicles must be registered, insured and be able to pass a safety inspection.
