    Hello everyone, I hope to attend Swift Transportation's driving school this summer. I want to do as much research as possible beforehand.
    Will I be trained on a manual transmission? And how many gears does does it have? Thank you.

    18 speed double overdrive with a 3 speed brown light don't worry you only have to shift one at a time!

    Try to request a manual transmission to be trained on. If you train on an automatic its going to be a restriction on your cdl and limit future job opportunities.

    Swift? Really?

    Research this site, try indeed website. Read reviews. Do a search on YouTube for Swift drivers.

    YOU do it!

    As completely unnecessary the two extra sticks are that's still impressive to me, I'd get lost remembering which one is which.

    All I can say is once you start pulling a Swift trailer, you will be a chick magnet. Hope you are not married.
