Graduates from Diesel Truck Driver Training School receive all the licensing permits, endorsements, and driving test needed to obtain their Class-A Commercial Driver's License. Hear what some of our most recent graduates have to say.
I have always wanted to drive trucks and never thought I could do it. I hired into a job that wanted me to get my cdl, so with that, I decided with all the law changes that I would try to get into a school for my cdl. I decided to go with DDS being that it has great reviews and that would allow me to go anywhere without a year contract. My friend went there and loved it. All the staff is great there, also a huge shout out to my instructor dan as he had the greatest patience, I have ever seen with me. After I graduated about a month later, I was accepted to Roehl Transport in Marshfield Wi. I am in their utility fleet, so I get to drive everything from reefer to dump truck. Multiple different jobs. I never would have gotten where I have without my friends, family and most importantly DDS.
I hope you are doing very well. As you know, your office was the main gate on my journey to obtain my CDL and enable me to join trucking industry. There were few set backs here and there, but your school manage to accommodate me and help me make dream come true. In fact, I recently secured a job with SWIFT Transportation and if it wasn't because of Diesel Driver School I wouldn't be able to make it, so please on my behalf extend my "Thank you" to my instructors for believing in me and their tirelessly efforts to train me. Once again, thanks to you and to the entire staff at DDS.
Thanks to Diesel Driving School’s 4 week program I was able to pass my cdl test and enter the workforce less than 2 weeks after graduation at Sysco foods more than doubling my income from my previous job. I would recommend anyone looking to get their cdl to Diesel Driving School.
The training I received at DDS was crucial for me to get into CDL driving. Thanks to the training by Jim S. I was able to secure a job driving dump truck and operating heavy equipment. I would recommend DDS if you want to learn the safe and right way to drive commercial vehicles.
I found a job with Lanser Towing and Recovery out of Belgium WI. I am driving one of the heavy wreckers which is really exciting. The training I received at DDS really helped me get a good foundation that I can build upon with experience I will gain working.
Passed after the two week program, ALL the instructors and staff are fantastic. Jack was my instructor and he is one of the most outstanding human beings I've ever met, very knowledgeable and patient, but also was sure to tell you when you did something wrong, but also told you how to fix it. very fortunate to have had him as a teacher. Choose DDS, You will not regret your decision.
My name is Mike and I graduated in the year of 2018 and graduated with my class A and found a job within 3 weeks with Lycon Inc and they taught me how to drive concrete mixer. I was there for 2 months and got instantly hired by a quad axle dump truck fleet with Gator Transit. DDS has changed my life and has set me on the correct path to succeed.
Thank you DDS
I graduated from Diesel Driving School the last week in January. I have been hired full time and have been to both coasts in a 2018 Volvo. Thank you to everyone there especially Jerry in classroom and Steve in the truck. I really enjoy it.
I began working with Westside Transport in January 2019. It has been a rewarding experience being on my own, and I am grateful for the training I received at Diesel.
Hello! I was hired at Coello and Associates,llc. in Waukesha, Wisconsin on September 21st, 2018. DDS gave me the skills I needed to start the next chapter of my life, a week after graduation. I've since recommended DDS to my career councilor in the vocational rehabilitation program at the Milwaukee VA for placing other veterans like me into your program. Thank you!
I graduated from Diesel Truck Driving School and now have a job wherever I go. The demand for drivers is there. I was a little nervous at first but thanks to all the great instructors I was able to obtain my Class-A CDL and now make great money regardless of location.
My thanks to Diesel Driving School for a great program. My two instructors were Jim (senior Jim) and Dan. They were both very professional and dedicated to teaching the most during the weeks I was there. They were patient but firm with us and I feel I received excellent training. Both of them used every opportunity to teach as much as possible about driving. As a result I passed the CDL test on the first try and then went on to the Schneider Training Academy in Green Bay. Some of the instructors there were familiar with Diesel Driving School and said they got well trained students from there. Overall, I think my experience at Diesel Driving School gave me a head start on my Schneider training. There were 12 of us who started the class with Schneider but only 4 of us graduated and went on the road with a Training Engineer. I believe the preparation I received while I was in your school contributed greatly to my success. Now I've been OTR solo for a month and I constantly rely on my training from Diesel Driving School and the Schneider training. I've successfully picked up and delivered every assigned load and now have over 10,000 miles driven. No accidents or mishaps because your program emphasized safety first in all things. I speak highly of your program whenever I have the opportunity and I hope one day I will have the opportunity to bring my rig in and say hi to the great people I met while in school. Thank you and drive safe!
I just want to thank you guys you are a great school, Jerry is a great teacher, Dan is a great instructor and because of DDS got a great job at American Midwest Logistics. I’m home every night and off every other weekend. Thank you so much for everything.
My new job at Hartmann Farms. Thanks for training that I received. It came in handy! Thanks, DDS
First off, I would like to thank DDS for the comprehensive training and friendly staff. I have been the front end loader operator at Badger Mining Corporation for about I ½ years. Starting the Monday after I graduated from DDS, I started training on their dump truck team. Now I drive on my own, once or twice a week or more when needed. I haul sand from Badger Mining to the Neenah Foundry, After delivering the sand, I then load my dump truck with waste from Neenah Foundry and haul it to the Berlin landfill. From there, I return to Badger Mining and repeat the process. Thanks again for the great training. Sincerely, Dustin Hodge
I’m driving for Fuchs Trucking out of Sauk City Wi. They’re a really great small company running 90+ trucks and 120+ drivers with local, regional and some national runs. Within 2 weeks of additional training, I’m driving my own rig around the central WI state highways for our consistent customers. Thanks DDS for making this new carrier possible! Hello to Mike! -Chris R.
Coming into this school the truck and trailer really intimidated me.. The instructors are awesome at working with you and being patient. my instructor was awesome he praised me when I did good and told me when I messed up how to fix it. Even messed around with me and my football team taste! I recommend this school to anyone with an open mind even if it’s something that intimidates you I bet this program can have you driving like a pro in 3-4 weeks! THANKS DDS!
Thanks to DDS I was able to get a job with my previous career path since I added on having a CDL to my certifications I got a better job with Hooper Corp.
I would like to thank all the staff and instructors at dds. With the two week class, I took I was able to get a job pulling trailers for the company I currently work for. I passed the interview with flying colors, and because I got my CDL I got a interplant driving job.
I put my eight hours in, and I get to go home at the end of the shift. Beats my previous job sitting on a line for eight hours. Plus I got a $3.00 pay raise. Thanks again!!!
I would like to thank DDS and the trainers for giving me an opportunity to change my career. I was unemployed for 6 months, before signing up for School. I was told because of my background ( felony conviction) DDS could not guarantee a position for me once I graduated. A couple of weeks after graduation I was given the chance to prove my worth and was hired by Spoerl Trucking Incorporated. I was the second graduate from DDS that Spoerl had hired, they were impressed by the knowledge that was given to the students. Therefore my training time was very short. Within a month I was out on my own.
I currently drive a 13-speed 2016 Freightliner and have been driving for 5 months including my training. Next month I'll be moving into a 2018 International. I have over 50,000 miles under my belt of over the road driving. I have been to 34 of the 48 Continental United States and the list keeps growing.
I still keep in touch with the other students that were in my group, even though we were only together for a few weeks we built a strong bond.
Once again I would like to thank DDS for the training and the opportunity to change my career, without you I'm not sure where I would be today.
Good day KJ and to All at DDS,
Hope this finds you very well. I was hired last year on 8/29/2017 (same month that I graduated from DDS) as a flatbed driver with Halvor Lines of Superior, WI. I love my new career with Halvor Lines. Thank you all for the great training and all your help.
Choosing DDS was the best choice I have made. Not only has it enabled me to gain a good career, I can almost certainly he assured that I will always have a job no matter what with a CDL. Its paid dividends so far. The instructors are knowledgeable and the course is set up to make you succeed. I have and will continue to recommend DDS.
I want to thank all the instructors and staff at DDS for all of the help from the classroom to the road. I now have a great job driving dump truck for the fine folks at T&T Stone Company in Cambridge, WI. Thanks for all the help in obtaining my CDL!!
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 drive 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 were I am today. Thank you all very much.
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.
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.
