Let me start off by saying I wasn’t a prime candidate, I’m 39 years old and never drove a manual transmission before in my whole entire adulthood. Let me first review the front office, I found them on the internet and called the corporate office. They referred me to Maryann who runs the Anaheim office. So we had a meeting and went over the program, I was very impressed so I told her give me a few days to go over it with the wifey. Needless to say wifey said go for it, it’s a great investment. So I came back and it literally took her 10 minutes to get me trough the paperwork, and right after that she sent me to the doctor to get my DOT medical, talk about efficient?!?! Super efficient and thorough. So the program is literally a four week process. First week is to get you your permit, second get your pretrip down. I called the first two weeks the book work process, third week is all skills and fourth week is drive and road. The instructors are freaking awesome and super knowledgeable, Raul and Tim are the instructors with at least 50 years of trucking experience between the two. Im telling you I didn’t know anything about trucks but they taught me and I’m pretty confident that I could be a safe and successful trucker. I’m 39 the saying you can’t teach an old dog new tricks didn’t apply to me because Raul and Tim are awesome. If you’re worried about the pandemic, don’t be I literally signed up at the hype of the pandemic, Maryann makes sure everything is sanitize while you’re in class, she’s super proficient and professional. As well as Raul and Tim when you get in the trucks. I’m super satisfied and would recommend to all friends and family.
