Truck Dynasty Driving Academy provides a refresher course for Class A commercially licensed drivers that need to sharpen and / or develop their skill level prior to re-entering the transportation industry as a professional driver. Refresher courses will commonly be required if a driver has not been in a semi-tractor trailer in an over the road capacity within the last one and one half years.
The refresher course curriculum is offered in a one or two week timeframe increment. Prior to enrollment the driver is evaluated to determine skill capacity. Truck Dynasty Driving Academy evaluates the driver’s expertise on the pre-trip inspection, six basic backing maneuvers and road performance. To be accepted for the one week refresher, he/she must score a minimum of 75% on the pre-trip inspection, not miss more than 8 points on the backing maneuvers, and miss no more than 15 points on the driving test. A lesser score in any of the above mentioned categories results in the necessity of a two week refresher curriculum.
