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.
