By Arkansas NEXT on Friday, September 25, 2020

Shaun Tyler enjoys a career as a commercial truck driver for North Little Rock-based Maverick Transportation. His job takes him on routes all over the country, and Shaun enjoys getting to see all the different states.

As of June 2020, Black River Technical College now offers a commercial driver’s license (CDL) training program, where students can get a Class A CDL license in just one month.

Only four students will be accepted per class, and the program demands 10-hour days. The first week prepares trainees for the CDL permit test, and the following three weeks focus on driving.

Immediately upon completion, drivers can get a job operating large vehicles like semi-tractor-trailer trucks. Must be 18 or older.
