CDL Instructor

At Center for Transportation Safety (CTS), our priority is in our name – Transportation Safety. Unlike many “for public” truck driving schools, CTS, for over 20 years, has concentrated its efforts on the needs of our clients. Rather than offer “off the shelf” solutions to our clients, our courses are designed to incorporate changes to FMCSA Regulations, the client’s policies, procedures, and incident ratings. This allows our clients to have a true say in the services they are receiving. As a result, CTS offers a wide variety of commercial driver training services to both individuals and corporations operating commercial motor vehicles.


In our novice programs, our instructors work with small groups of students (3:1 or 4:1) to prepare them for their newly chosen career. Our instructors provide training that covers anything from classroom instruction to behind the wheel training.
