Road Skills

At Shelly Truck Driving School, students receive hands-on experience to learn practical driving skills. By the end of the four-week course, students are comfortable behind the wheel of a big rig, having handled a truck on the highway and in the city. By learning these basic road skills, students are prepared for their CDL road test and to start their driving career.


Real World Training

Every student enrolled at Shelly Truck Driving School receives 3 weeks of hands-on training, half of which occurs in our simulator and on the roads of York and Lancaster Counties. Instructors provide students with real-life situations, so they learn maneuvers and operations they will be doing every day on the job. This includes shifting, turning, and driving on various road conditions.

“Having just graduated from this school, I felt compelled to leave a review for the school. The school as a whole, but especially the staff made this an all-around great experience. I started this school with no working knowledge of driving a tractor and trailer combination. Today, I feel comfortable enough to now apply and work for a multitude of companies with the skills learned there. Thank you Dom for putting together such a great school and staff to support it. Good luck to all my classmates, nothing but the best wishes for you all! 🚚 🚛 Anyone looking to learn a new, essential and marketable career needs to check this school out!!”
