Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers transport goods from one location to another. Most tractor-trailer drivers are long-haul drivers and operate trucks with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) capacity—that is, the combined weight of the vehicle, passengers, and cargo—exceeding 26,000 pounds. These drivers deliver goods over intercity routes, sometimes spanning several states.


Hocking College's Commercial Truck Driver Training School offers truck driver training in a variety of course models to fit any timeline. The training program courses vary in intensity and duration and can be utilized by new students, existing students, and corporate sponsors.

Tuition includes drug screening, CDL permit, CDL test and license fees, and all necessary truck driver training materials and equipment.
