At Kansas Truck Driving School it is our mission to be the best source of well trained, new drivers for the Class A truck community in the state of Kansas. We will accomplish this by graduating student drivers who are proficient in all Entry Level Driving Training skill and knowledge areas as well as how to be safe, courteous, and professional drivers.
KTDS works with many state agencies like Heartland Works, WIA, Workforce Development, Unemployment Office, VA, SRS, and Vocational Rehab that may be able to help you pay for training. We can point you in the right direction depending on your individual circumstances.
KTDS also has partnerships with a select few trucking companies willing to sponsor school candidates who qualify to go to work for them. This means we can help almost anyone get the financial assistance they need to attend CDL training.
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 personally attended this school and passed with flying colors in 4 weeks. I am now working for U.S. Xpress making $1,500 a week. I highly suggest this school.”
“My experience with the KTDS was a 5 star rating. I was fortunate enough to have all 3 instructors that have real life experiences that I’ll be able to use in the real world. With the help of Darrell, Chuck, and Tom I have my CDL, 1 and done. The instructors are very professional and truly care for each student to grasp the concept of driving semi trucks.”
