The DMACC Transportation Institute Commercial Vehicle Operator Training course is comprised of two separate courses; an online theory course and a behind the wheel driving course. The total program meets the FMCSA standards and regulations for Entry-Level Driver Training.
Online Theory Course: This is a completely online course that students will complete at their own pace, from home, or anywhere with a reliable internet connection. The theory course takes a minimum of 15 hours and maximum of 90 days to complete. This online course is a prerequisite to being able to start the behind the wheel driving course.
Behind the Wheel Course: This is a 3 week course where students will be trained primarily on
automatic trucks and master the skills maneuvers on our concourse as well as the road driving. DMACC is an authorized Iowa DOT 3rd Party testing provider, so upon successful completion of the course, our students will be tested “in house” and able to obtain their CDL quickly.
