    Howdy friends,

    Looking to obtain my Class A CDL and hoping to find a good school near Eugene, OR. Also wondering if it is important to find an accredited trucking school? Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    There is no Ivy League in trucking schools. You need a 160-hr training certificate and experience backing a 53’ trailer (some schools only train with 28’ trailers). As long as the school offers those two things you are good to go.

    There's a May trucking sponsored or associated cdl school south of Eugene.

    Eugene Truck Driving School | 160 Driving Academy
    I think it's this one.

    160 is a good school. Majority of trucking companies that hire new cdl school grads, will hire from the 160 school.

    This one, the school is in Portland and after graduation you'd be assigned to the terminal in Eugene.
    Paid hourly pay while in the school. One student said he got $18 hr. for 40 hr. week, but that may be different depending on the terminal where the school is.
    CDL school is free to you plus meals and lodging provided and hourly pay.

    Do you want to run the roads?
    Any issues with passing a drug test? Hair follicle or urine drug test.

    Reddaway is also in Eugene and is owned by Yellow. The school in Portland, Post #5, probably can place you with Reddaway also.
