- Training is done in a real trucking terminal as well as on our parking lot, which is among the biggest of such lots in the Chicago-land area

Over 50K Working Graduates
I tried another truck driving school two times with no success and I’ve been trying to get my CDL Class A license for over 17 years. Progressive brought me my dream, finally. They teach you at your own pace and not how fast they feel you should learn.
The school is GREAT! The instructors & staff are very professional. They always attend to any issue! I was helped the most by the videos and techniques on how to memorize and understand during my studies. I will strongly recommend this school to anyone who is going to commercial driving school.
The lectures and pre trip study guide were helpful. Progressive offered an overall better program. My education here was outstanding. It was thorough and exciting.
This program really ensures the values of trucking. The excitement that they show when a person passes the exam makes people really feel good inside. I’m on to the next stage of my life. I will miss this place.
