Investing in your future is always an exciting decision, but it can also feel overwhelming. To better prepare you to get started with a career in trucking, we encourage your questions! Before sending us an Email, look here. These are the questions we get asked most often, so chances are you’ll find the answers you’re looking for here.
Q: How long will it take to obtain a Class A license?
A: While it’s entirely possible to finish in as little as 2 weeks, most students obtain their Class A license within 6. Your training includes up to 8 full weeks of resources, study materials, and support to pass your exam. After 8 weeks, it’s $450/week to continue at Masters Trucking Academy.
Q: Do you help me find a job after I complete my training?
A: Absolutely! We pride ourselves in not only preparing our students but helping to secure their initial positions directly following their certification. Find out more about the companies we partner with and who’s currently hiring in our market.
Q: What type of trucks do students practice with?
A: Our current fleet includes 8 of 2011-2012 10-speed trucks.
Q: How much does your program cost? Can I make payments?
A: The entire program at Masters Trucking Academy is $4,960 and includes all of the resources, training, and study materials you’ll need to pass your test. The majority of our students make this money back in their first month of driving!
Payment options are available. Please ask us for information on our financing options.
Q: What is your process for training drivers?
A: At Masters Trucking Academy, we take a hands-on approach to teaching our student drivers everything they need to know to get on the road. With a winning combination of classroom instruction and on-the-road experience, incorporating group and 1:1 training, our drivers are equipped to take to the road safely and professionally upon completion of our program.
Q: What do I need to do to obtain a permit?
A: Following the completion of our program and passing of a DOT Physical, you will head to the DMV. You will have to pass four tests from the DMV, including:
- General Knowledge
- Air Brakes
- Class C
Finally, you will need to obtain endorsements for HazMat, Doubles, and Triples.
Q: How many days will I need to attend class each week—and for how long?
A: Our program runs Monday-Friday for 4 hours each day. We understand that many of our students are still working other jobs or holding down family responsibilities while working toward their future in trucking. To help make the process as compatible as possible with your current lifestyle, we offer varying time slots to attend our program.
In order to provide consistency for other students, as well as for our driving instructors, we do require students to sign up for one time slot and commit to it.
Today is the best day to start your future for a better tomorrow! Master the road with us today!
