We all know how tough times have been in the past couple of years. A stagnant economy and unheard of unemployment rates have made it tough just to scrape by.

The good news is that you have options. The trucking industry is growing faster than ever and there is a demand for qualified new drivers that just cannot be filled fast enough. Transportation has always lead the way to economic recovery in this country. That is because as a consumer nation, everything Americans eat, use, buy, refill, sell and manufacture ends up on a truck at one point or another. Sure planes, boats and trains do some of the hauling, but you will never see a plane pull up behind a Walmart, or a train deliver to a hospital. As a result, trucking is one of the most secure and stable careers you can enter.


Our Commitment to our students:

Apex CDL Institute is not a “CDL mill” that churns out students with the only goal being the profit margin. We will never cram our classes past capacity. We will never overload the ability of our instructors or facilities to provide a safe, quality training environment. We will never short staff our classes with less instructors, preventing them from spending the quality time needed with their students.

We will not just take anyone into our school, taking their money, even if they cannot benefit from our training. We will not string students along with the hope of a career just to get money out of them. If there is something about a student’s background or driving record that is going to prevent them from getting a quality job in the trucking industry, then it’s our commitment to be up front and honest with that person. We would rather walk away with a handshake and the respect from someone for being honest than promise things that cannot be delivered just to squeeze money out of them. At Apex CDL Institute we are committed to your success and your future.

Multi-ethnic men standing next to semi-truck


Are you a hard working individual with a desire to succeed? Do you want a career that doesn’t set limits but allows you to take advantage of your work ethic and skills?
Then the trucking industry just may be for you.

Unlike many jobs, the trucking industry requires people that plan on succeeding in it to be self disciplined. Good drivers know how to manage their day, they are motivated and do not want or need a boss hanging over their head. They know when the job needs to get done and they can do it without supervision. That aspect alone is what appeals to most successful drivers. The transportation industry is the closest thing out there to being you own boss and affords the most opportunities to actually one day owning your own business as an owner operator.

Your ability to succeed in trucking is only limited by your entrepreneurial spirit and how hard you are willing to work. Your career in trucking does not end with getting your CDL, that is just the beginning. Keep in mind, many of the country’s most successful trucking companies started with one man, one truck and the desire to reach their goals.
