Our in house classroom training environment is designed to get you prepared for the hands on driving experience you will enjoy at Truck Dynasty Driving Academy. The first step is to learn the Missouri state Class A permit licensing information. This involves three written examinations including General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Combination.

After you have achieved your class A commercial driver’s license permit, your instructor will introduce you to Logs, Hours of Service regulations, Driver Wellness, Compliance Safety Analysis, and begin working with you on the Pre-trip inspection of the commercial vehicle. This solid beginning will give you the confidence you need for the next steps, maneuvering and driving the semi-tractor trailer!
Basic Skills and Range Training
Our trained and licensed staff have decades of experience training students for Class A CDL skills examinations. They know that most of our students have never even been in an eighteen wheeler, and demonstrate consistently the patience required to get you in one and moving! We begin this portion of the training curriculum on the range, teaching proper shifting technique while developing backing and turning performance.
At this junction of training, students will begin learning the 105 point pre-trip inspection.
Safe and Proficient City and Highway Driving Techniques
Once you have successfully mastered shifting and backing technique to safely proceed to the “Road Skills” portion of your hands on training, you will be introduced to rural, city and highway driving behind the wheel of an 18 wheel , air brake equipped semi-tractor trailer
