I graduated April 2018 grom the shippers Choice Chester, Va and I passed my DMV CDL test thanks the instructors TJ, Tony, George, Joe, Chris and Daniel. They are the best instructor I have ever met and I’m glad I picked this school. I recommend this location 100% and remember turn to the problem to fix the problem lol
As a female, getting my CDL A seemed unreal. Thanks to my recruiter Dale (who stuck it out with me until the end) and the Shippers Choice instructors, my dream became a reality. I have my Class A license. And I had a job lined up even before I even passed my test.
Great hands-on teaching. I felt VERY prepared the test. Great instructors.
I went to Newport News shippers choice, if you read the paper before you sign, it says they give you want info and tools you need to successfully be ready to take your test at the DMV. I personally took in everything they said and more, if you want to listen to what they are saying they go further then required. I appreciated it all, went got my Cdl, applied at tons of places while everybody offered me positions over the road I took a position locally with Pepsi, I am home everynight, great pay, better benefits than you could imagine also! Shippers choice is a great move for your future if you come here ready to focus and not joke around the whole time! Just like school, if you didn't pay attention you got bad grades, well, if you want to make a future for you and your family it's worth the investment!
Very good instructors. They gave me a lot of one on one training when I was having trouble. I had bad great credit and still received a loan and I didn't have to sign my car as collateral like CDS tractor trailer
