What Graduates Are Saying?
I started my own business and bought my own truck. I haul excavating equipment and fabricated steel for buildings to a company based out of La Crosse, WI. I really enjoy my job and thanks to DTDTS I was able to land this job.
Because of my hands-on training at Diesel Truck Driver School, I was able to get the Class A CDL I have always wanted and land a job as a regional truck driver through Swift Transportation.
Since I have graduated I drove a 28 foot straight truck out of Chicago. When that did not work out I was hired by LCL Bulk Transport. I drive over the road hauling liquid chocolate. If it wasn't for Steve and Bill who were very patient with me, I don't know if I would be where I am today. Thank you all very much.
I’m doing what I love, I’m working for C.R.England out of Salt Lake City, UT. The test and driving skills I learned at DDS came easy due to the hands on training. I’m a lease owner operator and over the past seven months I have traveled over every state and hauled a variety of goods.
The school helped me get a job lined up before I graduated and now I am making twice what I was making before I came to school.

Trashmen. We all have seen them. We know the basic duties they perform. A trashman’s primary role is to either ride on or drive a garbage truck to collect trash along the assigned route and collect trash from businesses and residences. Sometimes there is automated trash pickup, where the driver operates an electronic lift that empties dumpsters or trash receptacles...
