I am incredibly pleased with my experience at this school

I attended the Stockton location and Woodrow Lucas was my instructor. I went from a "B" CDL to an "A" CDL in two weeks and learned much more than I expected. Woodrow is a great instructor! Calm, patient, can convey his message in multiple ways, just awesome! The equipment is in good repair and relevant to what one would drive in the "real world". I was very adequately prepared for the exam and successful on my first attempt, largely due to the quality instruction. I am slated to begin training at the company of my choice just two weeks after completing the program too! My class was "me" and the one on one instruction was invaluable. I couldn't expect a more positive experience for twice the price, but this was among the most affordable (and fastest) programs I found. Great program and thanks again Woodrow.
