The Mission of the school known as White Line CDL Training is to educate

future truck drivers in the State and Federal laws, requirements, the

rules that govern the industry, and to insure the teaching of safe

drivers. The graduates of this program are qualified to be licensed by

the state for operation of commercial motor vehicles. ENROLLMENT

REQUIREMENTS Enrollment is open to any Kansas resident over the legal

age of 18 who holds a valid Kansas driver’s license and can obtain a

Kansas Commercial Drivers License Learners Permit (CDL IP). Applicants

must be able to read, write and understand English as stated in the

Federal law, and must be of good moral standing with no recent criminal

convictions. The Department of Transportation requires a DOT physical

and UA which is done at the beginning of the class. CLASS SCHEDULES New

classes begin every 5 weeks, excluding holidays. The program is five

weeks in length, or after the successful completion of 180 hours of

training. Classes begin at 8 am and end at 4:30 pm Monday through Friday

with a half-hour lunch. TUITION AND ENROLLMENT Course: Truck Driver

Training for Driving of Commercial Vehicles Cost: $2,650 for complete

program including books, supplies, and the cost of the DOT physical and

UA. Other Costs: Student is responsible for costs of learning permits

from the State of Kansas and the cost of the actual CDL license and any

endorsements from the State of Kansas. The school requires the complete

cost of the program be paid in full before the last week of class or

final completion of the program. CURRICULUM AND JOB PLACEMENT In this

program the student will attend 45 to 90 classroom hours of training

which will include presentations from the Department of Transportation,

BNSF, learning the regulations required of federal motor carriers, how

to accurately keep daily logs and become familiar with the equipment of

the trade. The driving training will include range driving, defensive

driving, basic road skills and backing skills. While this is a brief

outline of the skills that will be taught, White Line CDL Training

strives to teach professionalism. We hope that no matter how many miles

the student has driven after their graduation their actions will always

reflect back on what the driving school has taught them. During the

program, the school will have commercial trucking companies come to the

school for recruitment purposes. The school or instructors in no way

guarantee employment to any student. Students will be informed of

companies that are hiring if the school has been informed of such opportunities.
