CDL Training Near Me in Mississippi

Truck driving schools in Mississippi may be found in every corner of the state, although cities like Jackson, Gulfport and Hattiesburg provide more training options. Delta Technical College, Mississippi Truck Driving School, and the Truck Driver Institute are just a few of the school options in the area. Mississippi truck driving schools offer the necessary education and training needed to obtain your commercial driver's license (CDL). To qualify for a CDL license in Mississippi, you must be over 17 years old (21 for interstate truck drivers), have a standard driver's license, pass a vision exam and have a current medical certificate. CDL applicants are then required to pass a written knowledge exam and a three-part skills test, which consists of a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic vehicle handling test, and an on-road driving exam. Additional qualifications may be needed depending on the type of vehicle you wish to drive and/or the type of material to be transported. For example, additional knowledge and skills tests may be required to drive a truck with a tanker, air brakes or double/triple trailers or to transport passengers or hazardous materials. Mississippi truck driving schools will prepare you to pass these examinations. With a CDL in hand, drivers will have the opportunity to find employment with a trucking company in the state, such as Royal Trucking Company and Averitt Express, amongst others.
