FAQs

What does the course and curriculum look like?

The first week will be learning about introducing the world of truck driving to the new students, getting to know the regulations surrounding the CDL, driving safely, performing inspections and learning Hours of Service.  At the end of the first week the student will seek to pass the written tests to obtain a CDLP, (learner’s permit for CDL).  The next three weeks will be spent on putting into practice what they learned the first week, inspecting the rig, learning driving skills, both on a skills course and on the road, all to be able to pass their CDL exam at the Secretary of State’s Driver License Facility after the four weeks are completed.

What are the Costs and Enrollment Process?

Heartland will thoroughly go through requirements and expectations with any prospective student. They will inform you of the financial aspects and opportunities.  Cost will be $4200 for the four week program with a manual transmission option after the four weeks, with the manual transmission rate to be determined or based on amount of time required and the equipment used.
