A Letter From a Progressive Graduate to His Instructor

Alberto Ledesma CDL Student

4 Tips for Choosing a Chicago CDL School

There are multiple CDL schools in Chicago, so how do you find the right one for you? When choosing a CDL school in Chicago, there are a few key factors that you should take into account:

1. Look at their track record.

First and foremost, look at the track record of the school. How many commercial driver’s licenses have they issued? A school that advertises that they’re the “best driving school in Chicago”, but doesn’t have an establish track record of helping students to graduate and find jobs is a school to avoid. At Progressive Truck School, we’ve graduated over 50,000 students since 1974 – those are the types of numbers you should be looking for when selecting a school.

Also, look at the testimonials on the school’s website and social media. Look carefully at what students say about the training and professionalism of the staff. Avoid schools where you aren’t able to find feedback from former students.

2. Check out the equipment they offer to students.

Does the school offer 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?

Also, what does their training terminal/lot look like? A school without a dedicated, large training terminal and parking lot is typically a CDL school to avoid. Also, look for a school that offers on-the-road training, so that you can get real-life experience.

3. Find out if they offer job placement assistance.

Does the school you’re considering offer Job Placement assistance? The last thing you want to be is a CDL graduate without a great job to jump-start your career.

Look for schools that have experience placing students with top companies. At Progressive Truck School, we assist students to get jobs at companies like Schneider National, Werner Enterprises, FedEx, Roehl, and Con-Way.  Also, look for CDL schools that offer job placement assistance free of charge!

4. Find out if they offer PTDI-accredited courses.

PTDI is the first nonprofit organization to develop uniform skill performance, curriculum, and certification standards for the trucking industry and to award course certification to entry-level truck driver training courses and motor carrier driver-finishing programs.

Look for a school that offers classes that are certified by PTDI. PTDI is a great indication that the trucking school is recognized on the national level for meeting the PTDI’s high performance standards.

By taking these four factors into consideration, you are well on your way to finding a great truck school for your CDL certification! To apply to Progressive Truck Diving School, complete this form.

5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Truck Driving School

1. Does the school offer courses certified by the Professional Truck Drivers Institute (PTDI)?

Progressive Truck Driving School meets or exceeds the standards required by the Secretary of State of Illinois and also offers a course certified by the Professional Truck Driving Institute, PTDI.

PTDI is a non-profit dedicated to ensuring a high-level or training standards, safety, and driver professionalism in the trucking industry. PTDI develops a uniform skill performance curriculum as well as certification standards – since 1989 their certification is the gold-standard for quality driving curriculum.

2. Does the school offer job placement assistance?

So you’ve completed you coursework and on-the-road training, now what?  It’s time to find a job at a great company. Progressive Truck Driving School not only teaches students how to find a job in the trucking industry and what employers are looking for, but also assist students in getting placed in top-companies. 

Some of the companies we place students in include Schneider National, Swift, Werner Enterprises, FedEx, Roehl Transport, Inc. and Con-Way Freight. We not only ensure that you’re well-trained, but also provide assistance in job placement.

3. Does the school offer top-of-the-line equipment for student training?

On-the-road training is an extremely important part of learning to drive a truck. At Progressive Truck School, our fleet of training vehicles includes late model conventional and cab-over tractors, day cabs and sleepers with single and double axles and various transmissions, as well as various brands of vehicles: we offer all-around training with industry-standard vehicles.

We also offer our training in an actual trucking terminal. We provide one of the largest training parking lots in the Chicago-land area as well as training on public streets and highways. Not only do you learn in a safe training environment, but also gain real-life experience similar to what you’ll find once you graduate.

4. Does the school hire top-tier trainers and instructors?

Your instructors will have a direct impact on the success of your training. At Progressive Truck School, we not only ensure that our instructors have a proper background check, state credentials, and education, but also that they have significant training experience.

Progressive’s instructors must complete a specialized training program, which trains them on how to train and prepare new drivers for a future in trucking. All Progressive instructors must participate in a continuous education program provided by the Commercial Vehicle Training Association (CVTA).

5. Does the school have a reputation for successfully graduating students?

You want to make sure that you’re training with an accredited institution that has been an established trainer in the trucking industry for a long time. Progressive Truck School has been training drivers for over 40 years! We’ve helped over 50,000 students graduate with their Commercial Drivers License.

The Other “Progressive” Announces “Real Life Trucking Hero” Contest

Progressive Commercial Auto Insurance (not affiliated with Progressive Truck School) has announced a $5,000 grand prize for a “Real Life Trucking Hero.”

If you’ve helped a fellow trucker or weary traveler, Progressive Commercial Auto Insurance wants to hear about it. They ask you to share a photo of your truck and tell them your story via their website here, and then ask your friends and family to vote for your entry in October.

Truckers are the “unsung heroes of the transportation industry,” notes a Progressive Commercial release about the latest installment in its Real Life Trucking Hero contest. “They work long hours, are away from their families, and often don’t get the credit they deserve for a job well done.”

This is Progressive’s third annual contest meant to recognize truckers. Progressive Commercial Auto Insurance launched their first contest at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. Anyone can nominate a trucker, now through September 30. Nominating and voting is easy: simply submit a photo and a short essay (up to 500 words) explaining why you (or someone else) should be named the winner.

Link to the contest: http://www.progressivecommercial.com/hub/trucking-hero/#!/

Call Progressive Truck School to learn about how you can join the trucking industry: (773) 736-5522
