Portland CDL Training

CDL School and Certification in Portland

Portland Truck Driving School If you're looking to make a decent living cruising the open road, truck driving school may just be your calling. The trucking industry is always looking for more drivers, which means most people who earn their commercial driver's license (CDL) have very little trouble finding work. You might say that going through CDL training programs and earning your CDL is the hard part; even so, Elite Truck School of the Hillsboro area strives to make CDL training as simple and easy as possible.

CDL Training Requirements

Not everyone is cut out to be a truck driver. If you meet the following criteria, you are qualified to enroll in the CDL training program at Elite Truck School.

  • Age: We allow students as young as 18 to enroll, provided they intend to only work within Oregon. To drive between states, you must be at least 21 years old.
  • Documentation: All students must have a high school diploma or equivalent, a valid driver's license with at least one year of experience, and a Social Security card. Students must also read and speak English.
  • Record: To enroll in our program, you must submit a DMV driving record. It's also important to pass an official Department of Transportation drug test and physical.

  • 160 Hours of Training: The CDL training program lasts a total of 160 hours, or four weeks. Much of this time is spent in the cab of a real truck, allowing students to gain practical experience.
  • Modern Equipment: Since you'll be working in the modern trucking industry, it makes sense to train with modern equipment. Elite Truck School is proud to have some of the latest machinery.

The Elite Truck School Difference

We know that many of our students have busy schedules—that's why we offer both weekend and weekday CDL training courses. At our trucking academy, we also try to keep our class sizes small so our students can enjoy a family-like environment. If you enroll in our CDL training program or CDL refresher training program, we'll do whatever it takes to ensure that you obtain your CDL. Our CDL training school will even provide up to 80 hours of additional free training if that's what you need to pass your road test.
