Knowledgeable instructors that take the time to meet individual needs and answer questions and teach by example. I felt comfortable asking questions and always got an answer with explanation. I felt the instructors prepared me well for my new career not only operating the vehicle but checking to make sure the vehicle I’m driving is safe. The tools the instructors have given me will last my career. I went into final testing confident and passed. The curriculum for the entire training is intense and it’s a lot of information to process but knew it was up to me to to stay on top of the course information. I was treated like an adult and got out what I put into the program. No complaints. The front office is flexible and understanding, also knowledgeable and encouraging to get me in the classroom and eventually the yard. Classroom was informative and although sometimes dull 🤷‍♂️Very informative. Pay attention. Take notes throughout the entire process. It gets intense especially if your also working. Trust the instructors , let the process their teaching you take time to develop. All in all a great experience. I would recommend 160 Bensenville to anyone that would like to obtain their cdl.

Love This School

Go to 160

The experience was great! Better than expected. The classroom portion is simple enough anyone can grasp but informative enough to take away useful knowledge. The time with Janie, Joe, and of course Dwane was an experience for the books.


Marcel was a great instructor. Very knowledgeable and great demeanor.

I had the best Instructor Marcell.

Before I started at the school. I was a little intimidated about driving tractor trailer or getting a CDL. I met with Marcell @160 and within two weeks I had the pre-trip down and was learning skills and was driving on the roads and highways. Marcell was patient, friendly and taught us how to no only pass but become great drivers.

Great hands on driving school

I had a great time working with the instructors especially Aaron who I was with majority of the time, very detailed methods was being taught to put me in the best position to be successful! If you are dedicated to being successful and getting your CDL then they are dedicated to helping you earn it but you have to be willing to listen and break bad habits. You will also meet some cool people that’s on the same mission as you which could possibly be friends built that will continue on in the trucking world.

Experienced tutors

I passed my cdl at 1st try, thanks to great and experienced instructors. I recommend 160 academy, you'll not regret it.
