    Good afternoon,

    I'm sure this question has been asked in the past. My apologies. However, I am looking for recommendations of driving schools which have the best curriculum and behind the wheel training and will get through the whole course fairly quickly.I will be paying out of pocket, located in the greater Los Angeles, CA area. Thank you in advance!!

    @BigpopperRunner - may have a suggestion.

    @389Trucker - I thought you started trucking a few years ago.

    What type of job do you want? Contact a company that has what you want and ask which school they hire from.

    I’m from Los Angeles, CA. I been getting great advice from china town! But anyways to answer your question, I went to Edison trucking and bus driving school in south El Monte, not the best school but it fit my schedule since I work mon-fri and they open weekends. However, I went in learning everything in my own, the teachers do care about you and are willing to help but there’s a lot of people there at times. Schedule is like this: Mon, Tues: pre-trip, air brakes tests (occasionally driving on the road), Wednesday Thursday all day driving, Friday closed Saturday and Sunday all yard skills. If you have time I would suggest doing an 8-5. Cus you get more training, most schools will give you a discount if you pay up front and get your permit in advance.
