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 200 hours, taught over five weeks. The first 80 hours are face-to-face. The last three weeks of class have varying times for daytime and nighttime driving.

The class B CDL program totals 160 hours, taught over four weeks. The first 80 hours of the class are face-to-face, and the last 80 hours of class have varying times for daytime driving.


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 $200 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 $175 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
