NTTS CDL Training Approach

NTTS has developed and utilized an approach to learning theory, demonstration, and practical application for career training.

Theory – Classroom Training

The first exposure to new subject matter is in the classroom, where the theory, procedures and regulations of driving are discussed. These classroom and theory sessions are supplemented by student textbooks, CDL manual, CDL permit preparation, logs, road atlas, etc.


Upon completion of various classroom and theory sessions, a qualified NTTS instructor demonstrates the theory and procedures taught in the classroom through the use of shifting simulators and other equipment. Once students have viewed the demonstration and walked thru the procedure, they are prepared for practical application.

Practical Application

Under the supervision of an NTTS instructor, students are now involved in the guided “Hands On” portion. These procedures are repeated throughout the entire program with an evaluation to ensure students every opportunity for successful completion of the program and future employment as a driver.
