Heavy Metal Truck Training - Your Road to Success
Training Programs
 
At Heavy Metal Truck Training school we know that you learn to drive a truck by actually driving a truck.  That's why all of the behind-the-wheel training is done in an actual truck, not a simulator.  We also train you in equipment that you'll actually use on-the-job.  Unlike some other schools or truck rental companies that may train you on 'easy-to-drive' trucks that you'll never see or use on-the-job, simply to quickly get you through the program, we only use industry standard 10-speed manual transmissions for all of your training.  This way you'll be prepared to go to work in your new career as a professional driver.

Heavy Metal Truck Training school offers you several different CDL training programs and course options.  Choose the CDL training program that will help you meet your professional goals and objectives.

 
 New Online Training Option
Heavy Metal Truck Training school now offers all of its classroom training online! This is a great option for working adults and for those individuals with busy schedules and for those who need flexibility.  To learn more call us at 651-528-8994.
