CDL course offered as DSLCC in August

Dabney S. Lancaster Community College will offer a non-credit course for students to obtain their Class A Virginia Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) in August. The general knowledge classroom and pre-trip inspection sessions will take place on two Saturdays, Aug. 6 and 13, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. in room 502, McCarthy Hall, on the DSLCC Clifton Forge, VA, campus.
After completing the classroom and pre-trip portions of the course and obtaining a learner’s permit, students will then have a total of 16 hours of intensive one-on-one behind-the-wheel training. Once training has been completed, an instructor will accompany the student in a DSLCC tractor trailer to the DMV test site for the driving portion of the test.
The full tuition is $1,899; however, students who are Virginia residents may pay only $633 if they qualify under the New Economy Workforce Credential Grant (WCG) program (terms and conditions will apply). There are also other options for drivers who already hold a learner’s permit or need additional behind-the-wheel training.
