Have you ever wanted a career that brought you new experiences every day and your services were always valuable no matter what might happen in the world of business?
Did you know that a truck driver at some point transports nearly everything you wear, eat and use on a daily basis including everything from your refrigerator to laptop computer to the materials used to build your house? You name it, a truck brought it!
Did you know that Houston is one of the country's leading port cities and the transportation industry - large carriers, private fleets or delivery companies of every size - need many more drivers, even in this slower economy. Imagine, in just 6 short weeks you can go from a minimum wage, dead-end job to earning approximately $35,000 in your first year of driving alone. Picture it being your own boss, seeing the country, and being a part of an industry that keeps America moving! Lone Star College is proud of its Professional Truck Driver Program. Many students have changed their lives and those of their families by beginning their new professional truck-driving career at our college.
We start new classes every month, keeping our class sizes small for improved individual student attention. Our entire training team is focused on your success and pleased to offer our skill and knowledge to a new generation of professional truck drivers. We are proud of our 98% placement rate.
