Students will be prepared to pass both the DMV written CDL exam and skills test.

Begin a Trucking Career with a Class A CDL

New Castle School of Trade’s CDL training in PA will educate trainees on the basics of trucking equipment, truck driving, and the trucking industry. Class A CDL training prepares students to land an entry-level job operating a Class A commercial motor vehicle. Class A vehicles are defined as any combination of vehicles with GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds provided the GVWR of the vehicles being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds. 

With the training provided by our truck driving school in New Castle, graduates can become a truck driver in a diverse range of industries. Once the individual earns their Commercial Driver’s License, they will meet the qualifications to begin entry-level positions such as:

I don’t even know where to start with the amount of excellence of the faculty of the New Castle School of Trades learning facility. I had some challenging times and every instructor there (and I mean every instructor) lent a hand to aid me to complete the course and receive my CDL license. It was difficult at times, but every teacher was a great cheerleader as well as an instructor. I got the push I needed as well as the laughs and encouragement to complete the course. If you’re looking for a course to get a CDL license, look no further. New Castle School of Trades is the way to go!
