Commercial Transportation Training
High-quality commercial driver & CDL training for your employees.
This 32 class hour course covers pre-trip inspections, general safety, hazardous materials, endorsements, inclement weather, defensive driving, and more.
Participants will practice actual driving skills in their own vehicles, and spend in-depth time on the pre-trip inspection component. The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety administers CDL tests, credentials, and endorsements. Students must schedule their own testing.
This course is a total of 24 class hours—19 class hours for classroom demonstration and five hours of actual driving instruction. The purpose of this course is to prepare new hires for the CDL driving test and the Oklahoma State Department of Education (SDE) business driver certification.
This course emphasizes safety. Some of the topics covered include walk-around inspection, bus driver checklists, passenger load/offload, railroad crossings, emergency evacuations, drug testing requirements, sound driving practices, and preparation for the SDE School Bus Drive Certificate.
Driver Improvement Training is for new drivers, court-ordered remediation, safety requirements, or to increase your driving skills. The instructor is certified by AAA to teach this course. Some insurance companies will accept this training for discounts.
Using MNTC's state-of-the-art driving simulator, we'll spend 1-2 hours with each applicant in scenario-based assessments to measure safety knowledge, spatial awareness, fuel usage, shifting (manual), and problem-solving.

Using MNTC's Virage simulator, your crew members can practice driving skills to reduce fuel consumption. This is applicable to busses, waste management vehicles, and trucks. Proper fuel management typically results in a 40% improvement.
Using the simulator as a part of a class, students can train for the CDL skills and school bus driver exams. The types of vehicle simulations available for in-class training on the VS600M are the semi/Tractor-trailer truck, school bus, dump truck and waste management truck.
MNTC’s VS600M simulation model is unique as it provides driving variables that can be changed to challenge students. Items that can be programmed are the weather, time of day, traffic load, road hazards, animals and pedestrians.
