I would recommend this school to anyone looking to get their CDL Class A driver's license. I was a stay at home mom for 20 years and became a truck driver in a month! The staff and instructors really care about their students. HDS is a first-class institute that has an environment that is conducive to learning how to drive trucks. I had so much fun! I made a lot of wonderful new friends along the way. Now my 20 year old son wants to attend HDS and become a truck driver himself!

The ones saying the school sucked were clearly never there and never put the effort into learning. All the instructors are experienced OTR drivers. I went in with no experience whatsoever about CDL and took the long program. I’m now out on the road. It’s a great school if you put the effort in
