Commercial Driver License (CDL)

ATS Schools also offer Commercial Driver License (CDL) training programs. The CDL is required to haul many types of heavy equipment on a flatbed/lowboy trailer and to drive dump trucks on public roads. Many construction industry employers require heavy equipment operators and mobile crane operators to have  a Class-A CDL. The CDL program prepares you to test and receive a Class-A CDL. Please be aware there are additional fees related to the CDL program which are not included in the tuition price. Fill out our online application and see if heavy equipment or CDL truck driving is the career for you.
