Family away from home

What can I say it's been a long process but very much worth the wait!! Mr. Mike is the best along with his instructors! They want you to succeed and they work with you along the way. I will my extended family but it's time to make that money now!!!!

Amazing school

My experience with 160 school was amazing and very hands on. Mister Mike and his instructions are very helpfully. I just received my CDL license and it was Because of the staff and organization. they was with me thought whole process. I would recommend this school highly. Thank you again and good bless you Mike and instructors. Thank you again.

Go For it!!!

It was a good experience overall. Just didn’t like that my recruiter told me one thing about the schedule & it was something totally different once I got to the yard. So it took me a month longer to complete the class. But the advice i give is study your pretrip daily & practice skills/road every chance you get. If I can do it so can you!!!💪🏼

Thank you

My journey into the trucking industry thus far has been interesting. I have faced many ups and downs, highs and lows. None the less, the team at 160 driving academy got me across the finish line. Each and every individual gave knowledge that I will carry with me my career as a driver. I’m thankful for having came across Mr.Fontaine. His calm and canter influenced my decision to attend 160. Is also like to give a special shout out to Rasheed. You believed in me even when it was hard for me to believe in myself. I thank all of you who participated in my success. I know you will continue to guide even more individuals such as myself into a lucrative path.. I’d like to say more but my words will only get in the way.. blessings


I came from another trucking school that had me with them for 2 years. This school got me my CDL in less than 3 months. They are very professional and will work with you. GO TO 160!!

The classes were honestly great the students are usually very open and helpful to one another . The instructors were also super helpful they were very dedicated and passionate about helping students even if that meant taking extra time to help us with issues we may have been having.


160 made my whole journey easy all I had to to was apply myself and take the class seriously and the rest fell in line

Life Changing COMPLETELY

Well, lol don’t where to begin…. We can start at the moment I decided to approach this career full throttle and was able to seek the benefits of what was needed. When I first appeared in front of 160 Academy the manager was absolutely wonderful. First Mr. Derek Strand then came Mrs. (lovely) Lolita. Which she handled much of my business with expertise and I thank you once again. Additionally, the staff on the yard was absolutely great I can tell you why starting with my first time yard experience. The yard was very well kept clean trucks were all operational and staff was always on time ready. Mr. Tony certified instructor, 160 did their best hiring this man best way to go. Mr. Tony not only taught me the safety of operating commercial vehicle but to enjoy what you love to do. Mr. Richard certified instructor, one thing I like about Mr. Richard is he’s very experienced on teaching skills, not only was I becoming perfect by being taught but I was able to focus on many situations inside a tractor. Mr. Richard allowed me to apply myself and was able to correct every thing that I was doing wrong which I soon perfected thanks to him. Now, Anthony certified instructor, good guy very well balanced and smart. This man actually cares in his heart how far you go in life especially doing want he loves as well. Anthony was very well connected and most time resourceful, also had high hopes for everyone when taking them tests. Ms. Debbie certified instructor, if only words could explain but this woman is very passionate and dedicated to her job. The very first time I met her she was enthusiastic about us learning g and getting things right. As far as her training goes very militant, strong minded, and encouraging with all her students. I wasn’t one of hers but I made it my business to receive some skills from and she took me in like I was one of hers. Ms. Debb cheered me on when taking my test and to make her proud of all her and everyone else’s hard work , I passed very first time. YES I DID!!! Mrs. Ronda certified instructor (soon promoted shhhhh) her energy and experience just gives me satisfaction and having that strength going on the road. Mrs. Ronda taught me to have confidence and getting home (SAFE), that was her main focus getting home safe. Now, Mr. Ron certified instructor, very talented man and fun to work with. Mr. Ron bout his business he don’t come to play at all he’s serious about his work and the nature of his students. Thanks for everyone help is done changed my life as a person, absolutely built my confidence as being a strong man, friend, most of all a great Father to my kids. Too emotional behind this career but thank you 160 Academy and staff for all that you’ve done to better me, my family, and most of all my future. I will love and truly miss you guys may the next man 🏆


Would like to take the time to Thank my Lead Instructor Mark and also the other instructors at the Plant City (location) in Florida . For the Exceptional leadership and guidance throughout my CDL school process, Being able to gain and learn the necessary tools for a bright future. Thanks again.
