Truck Driving

Owens Community College offers you the opportunity to obtain your commercial driver's license (CDL) and immediately join the booming field of truck driving. The time is perfect for you to secure your future earnings by enrolling in Owens Community College's truck driving program.

Truckers Against (Human) Trafficking - TAT

In just four short weeks, you will hold your Commercial Driver's License (CDL) and be employed by one of the many excellent companies seeking tractor-trailer drivers.

In the classroom, our instructors provide unparalleled training. Then, using our vast "simulated city" driving range - the only one of its kind in Ohio - they teach students how to safely operate tractor-trailer equipment. Soon, Owens students are on their way to city, county and state roadways, gaining hands-on, real-time experience in all types of traffic situations.

Once again, Owens Community College is top-ranked for its veteran-friendly status! In our ongoing efforts to assist those who have kept us safe, we remind returning veterans you have just 30 days in which to convert your "military CDL" to a civilian license. And for those of you seeking a CDL for the first time, we welcome your calls to Blackie Blackwell, truck driving program manager, at (567) 661-2689. Thank you for your service!
