Classes are offered on a rolling basis with new classes beginning very shortly after the previous one is complete. All classes will be held at the Cross Country Truck Driving School, located at 2609 Tucker St. Burlington.

The cost of the CDL-A course is $2,680. Classes meet from 8am to 5pm. Full-time classes meet Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesdays.  Part-time classes meet Saturday and Sunday only.
