Truck Driving Schools – Are you the Best of the Best?


Truck driving schools are plentiful through out the United States.  Some good….some bad.  We’ve all heard the stories from students and new drivers revealing their experiences with some of the not-so-good schools.  In any industry, there will always be those businesses’ that bring about sour feelings onto the other “good” businesses’.  Those companies that are doing a good and honest job are also hurt by these “bad apples.”

As a student, how do you know the school is what it says it is?  How can you be sure you are going to receive the training you need in order to be a professional, safe driver?  What seperates a “good” school from a “great” school?  What questions should you ask and what should you look for in choosing a truck driving school?

Ken Bons is founder of Eagle Training Services, Inc. out of Illinois.  He and his staff have built Eagle Training Services into one of the best and most highly regarded truck driving schools in the nation.  How?  What does he do differently from the others? 

Truth About Trucking is on a mission to find such schools and companies. . . another way of “helping” students and new drivers.  Are you considering a career in trucking?  Are you looking for a truck driving school that you can believe in and trust?

Ken Bons will be my special guest on our internet talk radio show, Truth About Trucking “LIVE” – Monday, September 15th, 2008 at 7:00 P.M, Eastern Standard Time.  Be sure to tune in and learn exactly what to look for when choosing a CDL school.  But, do more than just listen…CALL IN!

Ken Bons will be glad to take your questions and give you the answers you’re looking for when considering a career in trucking or choosing the right truck driving school.  This is a MUST show for students and “newbies.”   Brought to you by Truth About Trucking “LIVE.”
