    Looking for input from those of you that have went through the maverick cdl program.

    How long was the driving school?

    How long did you wait for the phone call to get into the driving school?

    Anything to know before going? I'm waiting on my phone call to tell me when I'm going.

    The CDL Training Class at ASU is 4 weeks. I don't know how long the wait is as I'm waiting for the call myself.

    Good luck...

    How long ago did you get approved and what area are you from? We may wind up there at the same time.

    Gotcha. I was hoping to get in pretty quick. Haven't really been able to find anyone that can say how long of a wait it's been here lately. You going flatbed?

    Yes, I'm going flatbed.

    Here's the 2018 scheduled provided by my recruiter:
    2018 Schedule for CDL Training Classes at Arkansas State University – Newport, AR

    1. Orientation December 31 – CDL Class January 8 – February 2

    2. Orientation January 28 – CDL Class February 5 – March 2

    3. Orientation February 25 – CDL Class March 5 – March 30

    4. Orientation March 25 – CDL Class April 2 – April 27

    5. Orientation April 22 – CDL Class April 30 – May 25

    6. Orientation May 20 – CDL Class May 29 – June 22

    7. Orientation June 17 – CDL Class June 25 – July 20

    8. Orientation July 15 - CDL Class July 23 - Aug 17

    9. Orientation August 12 – CDL Class August 20 –September 14

    10. Orientation September 09 - CDL Class September 17 – October 12

    11. Orientation October 07 - CDL Class October 15 – November 09

    I know that doesn't answer your question as to how long the wait is. When I asked they said they couldn't even give me a ballpark. I assume the waiting list is lengthy. From what I can tell, there appears to be 8 to 10 students per class from Maverick.

    Talked to my recruiter yesterday and he's saying probably the march class. So maybe February or March for you
