Steps for Enrollment
1 Attend an interview at the range office, any Wednesday at 2:00 pm except holidays. (Access the Berkeley County School Calendar from our Training Resources page). This will determine if you meet DOT eligibility for CDL licensing. Directions to our facility are on the contact page. The interview should last 15-30 minutes. We ask that you stop by the DMV on your way and bring a copy of your current lifetime driving record with you. You have to ask for the lifetime record or they will print a 5-year. The cost is the same for either.
2 Go to the main office to apply. A $235 registration fee will hold your spot for the next available class and it also pays for your drug screen and physical. Call Dianna @ 304-754-7925 for current class space availability.
3 Proceed to the current health facility to complete the drug screen and make an appointment for a DOT physical. The secretary will provide this info and pre-paid forms to take with you. You will also need to provide us with a copy of your driving record by the start of the program. JRTI accepts funding from most state and federal re-training programs. There may be HEAPS funds available for students who meet financial need eligibility. The School counselor can provide more information about financial aid.
Enrolled student should visit their state’s DMV and pick up a free CDL manual – see our Training Resources page for on-line versions. It is STRONGLY SUGGESTED that you begin studying the booklet as soon as possible in preparation for the CDL permit test. You MUST have your learners permit by the start of class, or at the very least, have passed the General Knowledge portion of the test. We will evaluate on a case by case basis.
Class meets from 8:00am-2:40pm Monday through Friday and follows the schedule for Berkeley County Schools openings & closings.
