Independent/Private CDL Training Schools - Private schools specializing in commercial driver training, independent companies not affiliated with any state, province, college or carrier.
Community College CDL Driving Schools - Programs offered at community colleges, not all are 'accredited' programs.
CDL Online Programs - Independent study courses. These home study programs provide all of the written information and study materials required. After completing the independent study, the individual makes arrangements to be tested for their CDL. Although this can be a less expensive option, some commercial truck insurance companies refuse coverage to someone who has obtained their CDL in this manner. These programs are usually relatively inexpensive. Everything can be done by the individual on their own, without being affiliated or enrolling in any course, program or driver training school. Simply get the CDL book/manual from the DMV, study the manual, and be tested for your commercial license. This method is also a bit risky, as some trucking companies may refuse to hire truckers that have not completed a more 'official method' of training, such as at a community college or a truck driving school.
