The best way to obtain your Tucson CDL is by attending truck driving school, and one of the best truck driving schools in the Old Pueblo is HDS Truck Driving Institute. Since 1991, HDS Truck Driving Institute has provided men and women with the training and resources necessary to pass the Arizona CDL exam and become the professional drivers that the top companies seek. Our approach to truck driver training is why many of our graduates are employed by some of the nation’s top OTR carriers. If you’re interested in obtaining your CDL, make sure you meet our admission requirements and then call us to set up an appointment.
Applicants must be 21 years of age by the time the program is completed to obtain an interstate CDL license. You may obtain an intrastate CDL license if you are at least 18 years of age by the program’s completion date.
Applicants must be able to read and speak English at a conversational level. Applicants are also required to understand highway traffic signs and signals in English and how to make entries in English on reports and records.
Driver’s License and Driving Experience
Applicants must have an active Arizona driver’s license and proof of at least one consecutive year of driving experience with a standard operator’s license. A copy of your driving record can be obtained at your local DMV.
High School Diploma/GED
Applicants must possess either a high school diploma or a recognized equivalent, such as a GED. In some cases, we may choose to enroll applicants who do not possess either a high school diploma or recognized equivalent if they demonstrate the ability to benefit from training and a high likelihood of being employed after graduation.
