I also received a letter today and learned that I have to take the entire skills test over having had my CDL A for 5 years bc this school was fraudulently paying the inspectors to pass their students. Terrible that is students have to pay for their fraud.

It's awful funny that the owner was on here replying to everybody's review but now he is in legal trouble for the exact things that students were accusing him of so if you go there beware that you may have to retake all of your test again.

I enjoyed it and learned what I needed to get my license. Gene was my instructor and I was having a little difficulty at first but he had me right and when I went and took my test I nailed it. So shout out to Gene if it wasn't for him I wouldn't have passed and got my license. Somewhere like that is how you make it. If you go in with a chappy attitude and aren't serious then your experience will be bad, if you go in with a good attitude and listen then it will be good. Life is how you make it and this school and experience is no exception to that. Also Mrs. Terri in the office was AWESOME and helped in anyway she could. I thank the people there for taking their time and helping me to get my cdl's so I could start a career.

This place will not teach you anything and will take your money. The only way students learn here is from other students. Don't go here!

Were should I even begin. First this place is a scam, the owner Jim Welburn drives around in his little exotic car and acts as if he is untouchable. The place is ran down I wouldnt recommend anyone go here. Just read a few of the reviews and you will get a feel of what actually goes on . Ive had friends that told me about this place and i thought it would be a good try due to them giving you a job as soon as you graduated. But not how it goes one small mistake and you will have to be in court . the owner sues everyone that he can he is a money hungry selfish person . He doesn't care if your broke and are trying to come and get a cdl to provide for your family all he worries about is how he can take every penny you have . American Truck Driving Academy scale of 1to10. Your a -10

Great place to get your CDL!!

I falled a drug test there , left the next day.This school has charged me 6185.00 for going there and falling a drug test. There scam artists and this is not a good school for people to go to. Don't get scamed, they force you to sign paperwork and don't give time to read it before you sign them. They put you in a ran down hotel in a bad area, charge you for food when you get there, plus there raciest flags everywhere. Black people and white people, this is a scam !!!!

Look if you go there to learn and get on with your life, this is the place for you. If they can train you on sub par equipment you can succeed anywhere in life. Too many people showed up and treated it like it was a game because it wasn't luxurious. Show you're serious about it and instructors match it. At least that's how it worked for me. 24 days and I was outta there.

Something seemed fishy from day one. I was sent here by CRST and they had me teaching other students from my first day on the yard. I was mistreated gor asking for better training. And I believe they had rackets set up with their third party testing facilities and the hotel that students were placed in. I saw students who could not drive get their license with no problem while drivers who could drive failed multiple times. I have a very detailed idea as to what the deal was. I saw enough in the 3 weeks I was there tk leave after failing the first time. I should not have failed... I have driven cdl before and I was training the other students who passed. I was tested on a different field than other students and the tandems were moved so far forward that I had a 14 ft overhang to do a true 90 alley dock... Mathematically impossible... When I challenged it, my next test date was moved more than 20 days away... When I questioned the decision I was told I had no right... The FBI closed them down today... I will be a witness against them if I am asked! I was able to gain insight fron some instructors and other students... There were instructors who didnt even have cdl licenses..... I could write a book on the violations I witnessed while attending this school... Our lives were risked repeatedly by these people. And we were treated like prisoners at a school we were paying for.... Insanity is what it was....

HI i am veeresh from india, karnataka i wanted to learn the truck driving so what is the first step to come to us

Leigh Hill

I got my cdl here 6 years ago. If you are serious they are too. The equipment wasn't good but good enough for me to learn. I passed and was satisfied with my experience. Its ran by jim, an old man, don't disrespect him and you won't be disrespected. Stop the horseplay and get on with your life.

I been there on fourth week and learned a lot , u get out of what u put in it , I have successfully completed the course and now fixing to test in one month. Very knowledgeable people and staff. Thanks

Cadarius Neal

Just got a letter in the mail saying I have to take all my test over again after I have been driving almost 4 years.... great school but you might be taking your test twice.

Casey Brumbelow

So I went here to get my cdl and I notice a few things wrong. 1. The instructor in the classroom won't teach you everything that you need to know. Went on a Thursday and failed the whole test. So I studied for retest on my own and went back on Friday and passed 2 out of 3. 2. Classroom is falling in. 3.busses have more problems 4. Will be in older trucks on the backing field 5. They are rude people. So rethink about it

John Logan

If I did it so can you.


christopher ingram

Place is a complete scam !!!! Do not I repeat do not come here !! After 4 years of driving over 500 people have to come retake a cdl test which is bs because of fraud and bribery the owner is doing .. beware .. I hate I even signed up to go this dump!!! I hope karma kicks his old white wrinkle azz

Anthony Dyches

If you take getting your CDL training serious they will take you serious

Michael Artis

CRST sent me to this school back in August of 2017 and I see the then owner has been indicted on bribery and wire fraud. Now because of his actions anybody who went through this school from 2/15 to 4/18 will have to retest....I've been driving 2yrs now and have to retest....I'm currently looking into seeing if CRST can be held accountable for sending me to that school.

johnboy jupiter1

Worst experience ever

Kristi Hill

This school is so laid back. They give you all the information you need to be successful in this field. They didn't rush me in my training and let me test when I was confident in my driving skills. I would recommend this school to any one that's serious about getting a class A permit and CDL.
