Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Program

PCC now offers a comprehensive Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training program. A class A license is considered the “universal” CDL, providing the operator the ability to drive multiple types of commercial trucks and tractor trailers. A class B license allows the operator to drive many of the same vehicles, but is more limiting than a class A CDL.

The class A CDL program totals 180 hours, taught over five weeks. The first 2 weeks of classroom instruction prepare students for their permit, while the last three weeks include day and night driving sessions.

The class B CDL program totals 120 hours, taught over four weeks. The first 60 hours of the class are taught online asynchronously, while 60 hours includes day and night driving sessions.


The cost of the class A program, including all materials and instruction, is $2,700.00. The cost of the class B program, including all materials and instruction, is $1,700.00. There is an additional $175 fee for drug screening, physical, and background check. To start the program, students must pass all aspects of the pre-screening process. Students will pay $160 directly to the NC DMV for their permit and license.

Tuition assistance may be available to those students who qualify.


  • Students must be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a valid Social Security Card
  • Possess a valid driver’s license
  • Have an acceptable driving record
