CDL Enrollment Requirements

What's needed to earn your CDL

Enrollment Requirements for CDL License Training

At Apex CDL Institute, it is not only our job to provide you with CDL training to obtain your Class A CDL, but it is also our job to ensure you become a successful truck driver with a strong start on the career path in the truck driving industry. We want you to succeed, so our advisers will teach you the ins and outs of the truck driving industry and how to operate a commercial truck. The first step in that process is to determine a student’s ability to benefit from our CDL training. In other words, can the student get a job? Is this career choice the right path? Our goal is to provide job placement to every student that attends our Kansas City-area course program. Therefore, in order to qualify for our CDL License training, you must meet our CDL requirements for enrollment.
