Student Experience

You will learn the ins and outs of the vehicle and essential road and vehicle safety procedures in the classroom. When you take a seat behind the wheel, you will put that knowledge to the test by practicing your driving skills in a closed course.

Depending on how quickly you acquire your learner’s permit and get your drive time in, you can be ready to test for your license in as little as twelve (12) weeks.

EAC offers a refresher course (CDL 110) for an additional 30 hours of driving and instruction for those who need more time behind the wheel.
