Hands–On CDL Training
The SAGE driver–training program provides students with the ideal mix of classroom and “hands on” training. The program is modeled upon the curriculum developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Professional Truck Driving Institute (PTDI).

Industry-Leading Equipment and Facilities for Truck Driver Training
SAGE provides students with the same tractors and trailers used by today’s leading trucking companies. And the school has one of the largest truck driver training pads in the country, with access to 10 acres of concrete pad, and a 1 mile private shifting track that includes multiple turns, intersections and other features students practice driving on before driving on public streets. This is one of the premier driver training facilities in the country.

Excellent Income and Benefits in Trucking
With demand for truck drivers at an all–time high, trucking firms and other commercial carriers are offering new drivers higher mileage pay rates and better benefit packages. A first year income of over $40,000 for a tractor trailer driver is typical. Highly motivated drivers can earn even more!

Exceptional Job Demand for Truck Drivers
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists heavy truck drivers as an occupation with high projected growth. According to the Bureau, “as the economy grows, the demand for goods and services will increase and more truck drivers will be needed to keep supply chains moving.” Trucking is considered to be one of the top job categories according to industry statistics. The American Trucking Association reports that through the year 2025 an estimated 890,000 drivers will be needed to be hired; this means over 88,000 drivers will be needed each year to meet industry growth and driver retirements. And there is o need to move: live in central New York and take advantage of local, regional or national trucking job opportunities!

One Student Per Truck Training for the NY CDL Test
In our TTD150 program, each student receives 46 hours of one student behind–the–wheel driving instruction with an experienced instructor – unheard of at many other school or career programs (be sure to ask them!).

Certification to Help You Get a Trucking Job
Upon successful completion of the program in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation 49 CFR 380.503 and passage of the NYS Class A Commercial Driver’s License graduates will be certified as an entry–level tractor trailer drivers.
