Additional Information Provided By The School:
DCS states: “Yard time is group. Usually no more than 4 students/instructor. Road time is effectively 1:1. “We accept a MAXIMUM of 6 students in any class. Our standards are very high and students are screened for employability before class. If they are not employable, they are not accepted. The director and lead instructor was a State Certified Teacher who became a driver — not a driver who decided that teaching was easier than driving. Our equipment is far above “school quality trucks” featuring Kenworth T-600s with both 10 and 13 speed manual transmission. Visit our website and view the video at DCSdrivingschool.com.”
