160 Driving School in Rockford

Just wanted to say thank you to all my instructors at 160 driving academy. If it wasn't for their help I would have never passed . First, Scott in the office, thank you for helping me get into the school! Second, the yard instructors, They changed my life! I want to personally thank Dave, Boni, Charles, Zach, and Anthony and Joe taking the extra time. I passed the CDL test on my first try!


Today I got my CDL, I want to thank all the personal in the Lebanon PA, branch for all the support, especially to Matt Gusting for all the help and support showing me the right way to operate the manual trucks. And also to the manager Erick who's also a great person.

Awesome instructors

I just want to say that the instructors were all great. Students were supportive of each other. Thank you team 160 Driving Academy.

Great experience with 160

Great experience, knowledgeable staff, and very helpful, all the trainers were very funny and can get you where you want to be with a carrier.

Great group

Excellent group of people working at the Detriot location. Process was smooth and training was great. I would recommend this school to my friends and family.

A good experience that could have been great

Great experience with very knowledgeable instructors. The instructor manage to enlighten students on the process while keeping the experience safe and fun. For me that allowed for great retention of a lot of information given on a daily. The only negative that I can speak to has been the lack of equipment and the constant breakdown of the truck and trailers. Although that was a constant occurrence the instructor and yard supervisor did their best to keep students engaged and informed on the situation and what they where doing to correct the issue. All of those problems were above their pay grade but they were the ones who had to make the best of a poor situation. I give them all the credit for their hard work and dedication to make that site prosper. Regional and beyond need to do better to ensure the success of that location. From my prospective it seems they’re doing the opposite. The instructors and students are winning in-spite of the road blocks and that should never be the case.

Good Experience

I just graduated from the Chicago Heights location. The instructors are great, they give you back what you put in. They can be tough, but they are fair! All you have to do is put in the 100% effort, listen to the instructors, and get the work done. Thank you 160 Driving Academy, I greatly appreciate what you have done for me!!

An Excellent Experience

I found the entire staff at 160 exceptional. They each have a knack of relating to the individual that best suits that student's needs and learning ability. Joe is the best! I found everything I could hope for in 160 Driving Academy. Passed my DMV test first time with flying colors, and am confident moving forward in my new profession.
