Job Placement

Very few schools, colleges, and universities can guarantee employment but here at Midwest Truck Driving School we consistently exceed 98% placement as long as you pass the industry standard requirements and FMCSR’s. Since 1998 nearly every one of our students that have wanted to get a job got one within the first 90 days of graduation. It is this dedication to our students as well as our relationship with trucking companies that guarantees your employment after you graduate. Midwest Truck Driving School is different than other schools because we don’t just teach you what you need to know to get your CDL. At Midwest you’ll learn about the trucking industry inside and out. You’ll meet many recruiters that want to hire you right after you graduate. You’ll also get to talk to some of the finest professional truck drivers on the road and meet many other trucking specific professionals in the area. Kickstart your new career and be a part of the elite drivers on the road. With so many opportunities in the trucking industry the only questions you have to ask are: who do you want to drive for and where would you like to go?
