Paul G. FleetForce Student
This school by far gave me the BEST experience I could have got being someone without ANY knowledge of the trucking industry. All instructors were very informative and gave everyone 100% of their time to teach us the simple ways so that we could all pass our test. I can now say I am 100% confident in knowing my way around the tractor and trailer and all components and pre-trip.

I'm beyond happy with my decision to train at FleetForce. This school lived up to my expectations and delivered the tools & resources I needed to pass the skills test.
Stephen T. FleetForce Student
The curriculum was straightforward and well-rounded, but I also felt sufficiently challenged to develop new skills and learn unfamiliar concepts. Operating a tractor-trailer was awkward, frustrating, and embarrassing at times, but the instructors were super patient, and I could tell that they sincerely wanted me to succeed. All things considered, I had a great time and I enjoyed training at FleetForce. I also met some new people along the way. This school helped me gain the fundamental skills I needed to pass the test and get an entry-level truck driving job. I highly recommend this school.
