Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Program

PCC, in partnership with TransTech, now offers a comprehensive Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training program. Our CDL program will be a total of 160 hours taught over the course of 4 weeks in a series of classes that meet Monday through Friday, or over the course of 10 weeks in a series of classes that meet on Saturday and Sunday. The first 100 hours will be in the classroom; the last 60 hours includes student observation and behind-the-wheel driving time.

Daytime and night time driving is required, so class times will vary from week to week. Hours can range from 7 am to 5:30 pm in the classroom with observation and nighttime driving hours varying.

Cost of the program is $2,799.99. This includes all materials and instruction (and $125 for the required pre-screening process). Pre-screening fee is nonrefundable. Students must pass all aspects of the pre-screening process to continue with the program.

Students can also expect to pay an additional $160 for their permit and license, which will be paid directly to NC DMV during the course.
