Daly’s has a vehicle that will allow you to get a CDL class B license with no restrictions. Most of our competitors train you in a bus with an automatic restriction. This means you cannot go to work driving most dump trucks, concrete trucks, and many other class B vehicles. The employers who are hiring require you to be able to drive a manual transmission as well as an automatic.
At Daly’s If you want to drive a bus you get your unrestricted license first and then they will get you a passenger endorsement when you start work. If you want to work in the construction industry getting an automatic restriction on your license will only ensure your options are narrowed for employment. Get the maximum benefit out of your class B license with an unrestricted license thru Daly’s Truck Driving School.
In your first three days of training, you can expect to get right to work – in the classroom. There will be a little bit of adjustment for you since most Daly’s students haven’t been in a classroom setting since they finished high school or college.
Your timeline for being ready to pass the permit test is only 3 days. During this time you are also going to be satisfying requirements under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for entry-level driver training in accordance with 49 CFR 380.503. You will also learn about “Highway Watch”, which has been described as: Homeland Security’s program that “uses the skills, experiences and road smarts of America’s transportation workers to help protect this critical infrastructure and the transportation of goods, services and people.”
Your primary objective, however, during these first few days is to become familiar with the Georgia CDL Manual. As a Class B driver, you will only be required to know two sections of the Georgia CDL: Air Brakes and General Knowledge.
The first items covered in the classroom will be General Knowledge and Air Brakes. We will give you all the information you need to pass the written test and receive your class B permit.
You will take the “permit” test covering general knowledge and air brakes on the third day of schooling at a state testing centre.
