The C1 Mission Statement

To improve the image of transportation and exceed our customer's expectations by safely, professionally, and compassionately training the next generation of America's professional Class A and Class B CDL drivers, providing them with valuable trade skills that will enhance their quality of life.

Truck Driver Training & The Professional Truck Driver

C1 Truck Driver Training was founded on the principle that a truck driving career is more than a job, it’s a profession worthy of respect. Becoming a truck driver should start with choosing the right truck driving school. Not all truck driving training programs are created equal. Yes, a driver needs a CDL, but to be a successful professional truck driver requires the right driver training with a commitment to quality. That's a commitment found at all 3 of our truck driving schools providing both Class A and Class B CDL training.

The Authority In CDL Training

“To provide the highest quality training for CDL” – that was the goal set by C1 Truck Driver Training’s founder & owner Chris Welch. As a young project manager for Cummins Engine, Mr. Welch saw the need for trucking companies to find well-trained, qualified truck drivers. Since 1987, C1 has grown to offer Class A CDL and Class B CDL training at 3 regionally-based schools. Our knowledge and expertise in training new truck drivers draw students from across the country to our truck driving schools and we put them to work at the nation’s most reputable trucking companies. Just more proof that C1 is the authority in truck driver training and why we call C1 "America's Truck Driving School."

Paying for Truck Driving School

C1 offers several payment options to make CDL training affordable for drivers from all financial backgrounds. These options include tuition assistance and reimbursement programs, company sponsored CDL training and loan opportunities through our financing partners. Our friendly team will walk you through the process to determine what makes the most sense for your situation. Let us help you find the funding for a better career!

History Tradition Success

The C1 Grad Hats are a symbol of our 30+ year tradition of training safe, professional truck drivers. Students receive their hats upon completing our truck driver training program and passing the CDL test. It doesn’t take long before these hats fill up with sharpie signatures from fellow classmates and instructors; turning it into a trophy to keep as a lifelong reminder of their achievements.

CDL Ace Club

Students who pass the CDL test on their first try receive a special red C1 Grad Hat. To recognize this exceptional accomplishment, each red hat also has the words "CDL Ace" stitched on the side, signifying their place in an elite club of drivers.
