Performance Based Training

Nationwide Diesel Technologies Performance Based Driver Training is a seven-day-a-week training facility. We provide students with a flexible training schedule which can be structured and adapted to their busy schedules. Students may opt to take all or part of their training during weekdays, weeknights or weekends.

Our training rates are affordable and we offer in-house financing to those who qualify.

Training Provided
We offer performance based training for both Class A and Class B Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDL’s). The programs are flexible and cater to the experience and comfort level of the student. They take the test when they are ready. Other programs include corporate training as well as Fire Department CDL classes. Nationwide Diesel Technologies Driver Training also has earned a strong reputation for its advanced specialty driver training (call for pricing).

Our students are typically driving trucks right from the very first day of school and are in the trucks and behind the wheel each and every day of school. We also work the classroom component into the overall schedule during every week of training to reinforce and apply the classroom curriculum with actual hands-on training experience. Classroom training is scheduled throughout the time in school, thereby applying what is learned in the classroom with the actual hands-on experience.

Training Length and Schedule
Class A CDL training at Nationwide Diesel Technologies Driver Training is open-ended. The professional instructors at Nationwide will continue to work with each student until both the instructor and the trainee feel safe and confident in the student’s proficiency and safe driving abilities. At Nationwide Diesel Technologies Driver Training, we pride ourselves on preparing the serious-minded individual for a career as a professional driverĀ  — for real life situations and not just to pass the state road test.

Regular training facility hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00am to 12:00pm. We can be very flexible with your training schedule. Some students, for example, attend mornings only or just Tuesdays and Saturdays. Your schedule can be adjusted around your job or other responsibilities. One-on-one training can be scheduled at any time.

Nationwide Diesel Technologies Driver Training is certified by the U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T.), approved by the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education (RIBGHE), and licensed by the Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). We are also certified by the Rhode Island and Massachusetts Departments of Labor and Training for those who qualify.
