CDS Tractor Trailer Training is committed to providing professional training and job placement assistance to its students. Our workforce has many years experience in trucking, with many of those years in the training and placement of new drivers.

Our school is located between Richmond and Fredericksburg in Woodford, VA. We have Full Time classes Monday through Friday from 8 am until 5 pm for four weeks. Our Part Time class runs Saturday and Sunday from 8 am until 5 pm for ten weekends.

Job Placement Services are our focus from the beginning of training. Students select the carrier they desire from the many to choose from and there are NO EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS TO SIGN! We are there to assist with applications, answer questions, and guide students to a carrier in which they will be happy. New drivers earn $38-45,000 plus in their first year!

CDS Tractor Trailer Training has many companies for our graduates to choose from. Job placement can range from local, regional and over-the-road. Here are some of the companies our graduates have to choose from:

·         Werner Enterprise                 Atlantic Bulk Carriers

·         TransAm Trucking                 Pepsi

·         Motion Holdings                   Coke

Our program consists of classroom instruction, backing and on-the-road training. Students enjoy our hands-on approach to training. Students are in the trucks the first day.

CDS has 12 tractor-trailers and 8 full time instructors. This allows students more truck time and better quality training. Most schools operate with 1 or 2 trucks and 1 or 2 instructors trying to train 10-15 students. At CDS, students train in small groups of 1-3 students per truck and instructor. It is a very good idea to visit a school to observe the training and talk to students before choosing a training program. You are welcome to visit CDS!

Experienced truck driver on the job

Why Trucking?

  • Employment of heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers is projected to grow 21 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average of all occupations.
  • As the economy grows, the demand for goods will increase, and more truck drivers will be needed to keep supply chains moving. Trucks transport most of the freight in the United States, so as households and businesses increase their spending, the trucking industry will grow.
