Montana Tech Holding Fall 2022 CDL


Montana Tech will hold a fall Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) course at its Highlands campus. The six-week session will begin with a mandatory Orientation on November 1, 2022. The program teaches students basic truck driving skills introducing them to the field of heavy-duty trucking. The program will emphasize safety equipment knowledge and State of Montana and Federal Department of Transportation (DOT) rules and regulations. Using a comprehensive curriculum developed by the Professional Truck Driving Institute, students will receive classroom and driving instruction that meets DOT and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Entry-Level Driving Training regulation standards that address skills, theory/knowledge, tasks, and the duties required of entry-level commercial vehicle drivers. The program meets the needs of students with no prior knowledge or experience in truck driving interested in getting a Class-A CDL License. The program has been designed and follows the new regulations and is listed in the FMCSA training provider registry.

The registration/payment and testing deadline is Tuesday, October 25, 2022. Highlands College will set up pre-screening requirements at the time of registration. Students must submit results to Highlands College before the final registration deadline. For information on costs and program details, visit
