South Piedmont Announces Three New Truck Driving Classes; Be On the Road by the Holidays

If you’ve ever dreamed of driving a big rig, South Piedmont Community College has opportunities for you to get behind the wheel before year’s end.

“Truck drivers are in high demand by a wide variety of employers. This is a career path that comes with lots of opportunity and great wages, plus the excitement of traveling every day, be it here locally or across the country,” said Dean of the School of Applied Science and Technology Dr. Mark Little.

South Piedmont just announced three new truck driving training courses. Dates, times and locations are as follows:

Course 1
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
South Piedmont Old Charlotte Highway Campus, Monroe

Course 2
Thursday and Friday, 5-9 p.m.
Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
South Piedmont Old Charlotte Highway Campus, Monroe

Course 3
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
South Piedmont LLP Campus, Polkton

Students may choose the course that best fits their schedule. Additionally, students may choose to pursue either a CDLA or CDLB license. Both license types are available during all three courses. After they complete their course, students will work with their instructors to schedule a DMV testing appointment.

South Piedmont’s tuition is highly affordable compared to other truck driving programs in the area and includes study materials.

“You can be driving by the holidays,” Little said. “In other words, you can be gainfully employed and able to provide for your family by the holidays.”

Prospective students must meet course requirements before they can register.
