Professional Drivers Institute Can Get You Started In A Trucking Career

PDI has been training drivers for over 25 years. Established in 1986, Professional Drivers Institute has operated its cdl training facility in New Buffalo, Michigan. We offer our students the quality instruction and training that is required to obtain their CDL Class A license. Both Michigan and Indiana drivers will find the individualized training that they need to become a licensed truck driver at our truck driving school. PDI takes pride in their 98% graduation rate.

What To Expect While Training At PDI

While in truck driving school at PDI, students encounter a 120 hour curriculum consisting of: classroom instruction, range training, and on the road instruction. We keep our class sizes small (4 - 6 students) in order to allow each student their own semi-truck to drive on the range. PDI makes every effort to limit observation time and ensure that each student is driving a truck the entire time that they are on the range. PDI leads the competition in Michigan and Indiana truck driving schools when it comes to behind the wheel instruction. On average, our students graduate with 40 - 50 hours of behind the wheel cdl training. This is right in line with PTDI Curriculum Standards.

Job Placement for Graduates

Once you have your CDL license, you need somewhere to use it. At PDI, our goal is not only to help you obtain your CDL Class A, we also strive for 100% job placement upon graduation. That is why we offer great job placement assistance. Over the years, we have built close relationships with recruiters from the top nationwide carriers. Graduates of Professional Drivers Institute are considered excellent truck drivers by these companies and are highly sought to fill job openings. Many times, we can even help get you hired by a company before you start your training! And not only do we offer job placement upon graduation, but we will also be there for you down the road if the need should arise.
