An open house for anyone interested in obtaining a Class A Virginia Commercial Driver’s License will be held on Wednesday, June 7, from 6 to 7:30 pm in Room 502, McCarthy Hall, on the Dabney S. Lancaster Community College campus.  This session is free and open to the public.

DSLCC will offer a 40-hour CDL course in June through the non-credit program. The pre-trip inspection and general knowledge classroom sessions will take place on two Saturdays, June 17 and 24, from 8 am to 4 pm.

After completing the pre-trip and classroom portions of the course and obtaining a learner’s permit, students will then have a total of 21 hours of intensive one-on-one behind-the-wheel training. Once training has been completed, an instructor will accompany the student in a DSLCC tractor trailer to the DMV test site for the driving portion of the test.

The full tuition is $2,385; however, students who are Virginia residents may pay only $795 if they qualify under the New Economy Workforce Credential Grant (WCG) program (terms and conditions will apply). Additional funding can further reduce this amount to $79.50 under the FANTIC program, which is based on income. There are also other options for drivers who already hold a learner’s permit or need additional behind-the-wheel training.
