Progressive Truck School utilizes a variety of late model conventional and cab-over tractors, day cabs and sleepers, with single and double axles and various transmissions, as well as different brands of vehicle, so you get an all-around training experience. We have both weighted & empty road trailers, so you get the experience of driving with a load, and taking a truck through scales. We offer training on Class A Vehicles, Class B Vehicles with Air Brakes and Passenger Vehicles-Bus.
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. On-the-road training occurs on public streets and highways, not on a closed track, so you get real-life experience
What do students say about Progressive’s equipment?
“The teaching materials totally prepared me for the exams. Joe was a great instructor and the yard equipment was excellent. Thanks Progressive.”
“The yard is very large and there is plenty of room to maneuver. The extra room made the skills training easy to accomplish.”
“If you want to learn what it means to drive a truck safely and get a great start in the industry, you will want to learn at Progressive. One of the best things is that the class size is small, giving you personal time with either instructor.”
“Progressive is a great place to get your CDL training! Thank you for the insight and the proper equipment to do so!”
