DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE USER EXPERIENCES
In an effort to prevent individuals from starting the Truck Driving classes that may be disqualified, we are requiring students to complete a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical (a.k.a. medical card) and drug screen prior to enrolling in the class. The drug screen must be within a 30-day window prior to the first day of class in order to be acceptable. This service can only be provided by medical facilities that perform this service. Some providers include:
Prospective students will also need to apply for their Class A CDL learner permit prior to the first day of class. Students will not be required to take any tests at the DPS office until after the class begins. If one of the DPS staff asks, let them know that you will not be taking any tests; you just need to apply for your permit. The application will cost $25.00. When applying for the permit, the prospective student will need to take two proofs of residence and their DOT physical card with them and submit the following forms:
*All forms must be completed in black ink. Do not sign any of the forms until you are in front of the DPS counter staff. The Texas Department of Public Safety Amarillo office is located at 6592 East I-40, Amarillo, TX (On the south side of I-40 between Eastern and Whitaker).
If a student shows up on the first day of class without their DOT physical (medical card); drug screen results; and Class-A CDL permit receipt, they will be dropped from the class and either refunded their money or enrolled into the next class.
The daytime classes start at 7:30 AM and end at 5:00 PM Monday through Thursday. We will break for an hour lunch. The nighttime classes start at 5:30 PM and end at 10:15 PM Monday through Thursday. There is a refrigerator and microwave in the student break room along with an ice maker.
