Becoming a truck driver is a great way to increase your earning potential and start an exciting new career. Georgia is one of the best states for pursuing a commercial driver's license, thanks to the availability of truck driving training. There are 72 truck driving programs in Georgia, many of which are dedicated truck driving training centers. Completing your truck driving education can be very affordable, because the average cost of tuition in Georgia is $2389. Most programs are eligible for federal financial aid, so you may be able to use federal student loans, grants, and scholarships to cover the cost of your education.

Completing CDL Training in Georgia

Most programs in Georgia take six to eight weeks to complete, although some programs take up to 12 weeks. In the first few weeks of your truck driving program, you learn about driving laws, how to safely drive a truck, and what you need to know for the written examination. The second half of your education involves working one-on-one with an instructor to practice your truck driving. These skills are put to the test when you apply for your commercial driver's license. Most programs prepare you to earn a Class A CDL, but there are options for students that want to earn a Class B or Class C CDL.

Applying for your commercial driver's license (CDL) is the next step after completing your driving program. In Georgia, you have to pay a $35 application fee to the Department of Driver Services when you submit your application. After your application is received, you take two tests. First, you take the written test. Once you pass that, you take the driving skills test. Upon successful completion of both exams, you get your CDL.
