Truck Driving

If you want to make a good living and love the open road, then MCC’s Truck Driving School is for you. Sign up, earn your certificate, get your CDL and get hired! You might even qualify for financial aid, grants and scholarships – that means for you the MCC Truck Driving School could already be paid for!  You won’t find that at other local truck driving schools.  Talk to an MCC advisor today for information! 

The Truck Driver Training/Logistics Management certificate will prepare you for employment in the truck driving industry, including both long-haul and short-haul trips, using multi-axle vehicles and trailers.  You’ll also learn about the rules and regulations within the truck driving industry.

In addition to the skills and knowledge needed to drive multi-axle vehicles, MCC teaches you how to professionally represent a company.  You’ll learn communication skills, customer service, critical thinking and problem solving for situations you’ll most likely face in the real world.

This program is hands-on and you’ll be teamed up with a college-approved mentor in the industry for a 180-hour externship. The program ends with the completion of the CDL driving test.  

 

 

 

 

 

When should I take this course

6 months before you plan to take the test to obtain your CDL.  New classes begin every January and July.

What will the class offer me

It will offer you the training that you need to be a Professional driver, as well as education and training to help you pass the CDL test.

Are there going to be day and night class

The classroom side of the class will be offered day and night, based on demand.  The driving and range days will be during the day, for the most part.

Will I get financial aid?

This is what sets this program apart from other truck driving schools. Most MCC students receive financial aid for college and as an MCC Truck Driving School student you will also have the opportunity to apply to receive financial aid and scholarships. This includes grants and low interest student loans. We have information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and scholarships on our Paying for College page. We also offer payment plans.

Students who wish to apply must possess a valid driver’s license. Students wishing to drive across state lines must be 21 years of age or older. Passing a state-approved physical exam will be required prior to employment. For further information regarding the health demands of the industry, refer to the following links:
