The ACE Driving Academy began in 2018 with a staff of over 20 years of truck driving and training experience. We believe training is the first step to a career as a Professional Truck Driver. The over-the-road instruction will be taught in well-maintained equipment; similar to equipment used daily in the trucking industry. Equipment utilized in training includes conventional style diesel powered tractors, with forty-eight to fifty-three-foot-long box-trailers.
Industry Leading Training School
The trucking industry depends on ACE to provide high quality, well trained, and road ready drivers after each graduation. ACE has built a strong partnership with many of the best trucking companies, and that puts our students in the best position to succeed with many of America’s largest trucking companies.
Many people need our training in order to get a better paying job. It’s great if you can pay for your training on your own but we understand that most cannot do this. We offer:
- Great partnerships with local employment offices for public funding assistance
- Great partnerships with National Carriers willing to sponsor your training
“I recommend ACE to anyone that wants to change their career. I’ve been a welder for four years and I chose to become a truck driver for U.S. Xpress, the best company in the nation and Ace Driving Academy is teaching me everything I need to know to become the best truck driver I can be. They have the best instructors you can ever wish for they will make sure you succeed!”
“All the instructors and admin go out of their way to help you the absolute best that they can. Was hired 2 days after getting my license and started training the day after hire. Will always be happy to give super kudos to the team.”
