    Graduate Paul Goyne 12/18/2012-NorCal was great. I really got a taste of everything here. I got 53 foot, doubles and single trailer experience. The instructors were very helpful and no one was left behind. You really get out of the class what you put in. I passed my DMV test like a boss my first time.

    12/21/2012 Graduate Robert Valente-An excellent way to see the countryand be garraunteed a job with a future. At this school they bend thier schedule for the student and an excellent payment plan. I now have 1 1/2 years in and it has changed my life and came in very handy during rough financial times.

    Or pointing out the fact that you have to read the manual. Myself I was offered jobs by the top carriers.

    Also I did pass the hazmat background check.
    This might have something to do with it? :biggrin_255:

    12/27/2012 Graduate Matthew Bingham- Good job at finding jobs and being organized. Nice instructors and very helpful. Also nice trucks!! They helped me clean my driving record. They also financed me with a good plan.

    I don't personally know any of the other reviewers, but I can vouch for this one being real (he was in the class right before mine & seemed happy with everything).

    From what I've heard my lead instructor Bob is no longer actively teaching (nor is his wife Brenda), so things have probably changed a bit since my initial review, but I'm still very happy with my training -- especially after seeing the (poor) quality of drivers put out by the big CDL mills. Sounds like they have a 53' trailer now too...

    graduate-robert britza 01/24/2013-i cant say enough about scott and dennis up front in the office. They bent over backwards for me. They showed alot of patience. The two instructors, dave and jody, are tremendous teachers! I made a friend for life in dave. I would recommend this school to everyone.

    graduate timothy woodworth 02/12/2013-norcal truck school was the best thing to ever happen to me. All the staff were nice and they really helped me. The trucks were nice and i got to learn to drive doubles and a 53 footer! If your going to go to a truck school, i wouldn't go anywhere else.

    Graduate Joel Noblett 02/22/2013-I arrived with-out any experience about trucking and left with my CDLA. The trainers push us hard but this preps you for the test & real world experience. I appreciate the school assisting with my needs and helping me reach my goals. The office was great and helped with all my paperwork.
