Welcome to Commercial Driver Training, Inc.— A New York State Licensed Driving School by the Department of Motor Vehicles to prepare students to enter the trucking industry. After decades of providing quality driving lessons for Tractor Trailers, trucks, and bus drivers, we have earned an impeccable reputation as a specialized provider of excellent programs to cover the unique and strict requirements of different sectors, from fleet companies to individuals choosing the path of commercial driving as a career.
A Tradition of Excellence
Founded in 1961, our school has been providing courses to produce highly skilled, responsible commercial drivers. Our Mission is to develop professional drivers to have a strong outlook on life, safety, protection of property, equipment and the environment through team-work. We are able to achieve this consistently by using our consistent training methods and by updating our curricula to comply with the current regulations.
At CDT, we take pride in our wealth of experience, as it resonates the high quality of training we are able to deliver without fail. We are proud of our crucial role of laying a solid cornerstone in the careers of individuals entering this demanding industry.
A Comprehensive Range of Courses
We offer programs, both accredited and non-accredited (avocational), meticulously designed to provide participants essential knowledge and practical experience in driving. Our accredited courses (Career Training I, Career Training II Full and Part Time, Straight Truck and Bus Combined, and CDL B Career Course) are for those individuals wanting to undergo intensive training for tractor-trailer, truck, or bus driving. Our avocational non-accredited programs are individual instruction to prepare just for road testing. We also provide fleet training and refresher courses, which are not within the scope of accredited programs.

A proposed federal rule set to spell out required minimum training standards for new entrant truck drivers has been sent from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to the White Houses’ Office of Management and Budget for approval. The OMB is the rule’s last stop before publication in the Federal Register.
As this is the proposed version of the rule, the agency will take comment from the trucking industry, stakeholders and the general public for 60 days following the rule’s publication. The rule has not been made public yet, so what it will require of drivers and carriers is not yet known.
The rule was produced via a so-called “negotiated rulemaking,” meaning a committee of drivers, fleets, regulators and other industry stakeholders met several times to flesh out the basic form of the rule before handing it to FMCSA to finalize and put into the regulatory pipeline.
As reported earlier this year by CCJ, the committee’s key recommendations for the rule included requiring 30 hours of behind-the-wheel training time, establishing a registry of driver training providers and establishing certified curricula for CDL applicants.
The OMB’s rulemaking portal says the White House received the rule Nov. 7. The OMB typically clears rules within 90 days of receiving them. The rule should be published shortly after its clearance by OMB.
