ANSWERS TO OUR GENERAL QUESTIONS

Do we have job placement after the course is complete?
We provide quality job leads as they become available to us from many vendors. The student is responsible for their future employment. Job leads are only provided to graduates. Guest speakers from local and over the road companies come to visit classes to recruit drivers. It would be irresponsible for us to guarantee employment as not every student may be a good match for the job and requirements.

How long is the course (duration of time)?
CDL-A is 160 hours. Weekdays 8:00am to 5:30pm. Course runs 7-8 weeks.
CDL-B is 102 hours. Weekdays 8:00am to 5:30pm. Course runs 3-4 weeks. (20 weekdays).
Upgrade is 80 hours. Weekdays 8:00am to 5:30pm. Course runs 2.5 weeks. (13 weekdays)

Satisfactory Academic Progress
Title IV and Veterans Affairs regulations require participating institutions to establish and publicize a Satisfactory Academic Progress policy (SAP) to determine if students are progressing towards completion of the academic program. This policy will apply to all the students at Commercial Driving School LLC regardless of their funding source.

Each course is comprised of classroom and yard maneuvers. Both parts require 80% passing exam grades. Students cannot re-take any failing exam grade. Veterans who fail to pass a course will be reported to the Veterans Benefits Administration if subject to VA funding.

Do you provide Financial Aid?
We work with NH and MA Employment Security, GI Bill®, FEMA, Voc. Rehab, Medallion Fund, NH Charitable Foundation and local banks to help you fund your tuition.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

Everyone I talk to says you’ll have to drive over the road when I get my CDL. Is this true?
85% of our students go on to local work within weeks of graduation. The only time students go over the road is if they wish to do so. You should network for job leads before, during and after the course.

Are the instructors certified?
Yes. All driver education instructors in NH must be certified to teach.

What is the cost of the course(s)?
CDL-A: $7,250.00
CDL-B: $4,300.00
Upgrade: $2,900.00

Our tuition prices are all inclusive, with the exception of what you pay to the DMV for your records and permit test(s).

What is the pass rate?
Our current pass rate is 94%.

Do I use the school’s truck for testing?
Yes. One time, if graduating the course. If the student needs to retest for any reason – there is a fee.
