Lancaster has several interstates and highways running through its borders, including the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76), Route 283, Route 222, Route 322, and Route 30. Because of Lancaster’s central location in the state, its proximity to Harrisburg, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, and the large amount of available space, in recent years retailers have opened warehouses and fulfilment centers in Lancaster County.

The instructors really make this class and school. From the class room to driving to the skills, it has been a very fun learning environment for the past 4 weeks. I ALMOST FORGOT I WAS IN SCHOOL! In my opinion no other school should be considered.

This is an amazing school, with top notch instructors. During my time there, I learned from all of the instructors and they each had different things to teach and add to the training. This school not only gets you prepared for the CDL test, but also teaches skills that give you a head start once you are out and working. The patience of these instructors is top tier.
