Driving School Breakdown
The Knoxville Driving School consists of 3 weeks of classroom and hands-on training consisting of backing, pre-trip inspection, and driving skills. Classes are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm. There is 1 instructor for every 4 students to allow students to stay with the same instructor throughout their schooling. During training, students are paid $400.00 a week.
The first week the student will get hands on training, practice quizzes for their permit and permit testing. The next two and half weeks the student will be hands on learning about the tractor and learning how to drive. At the tail end of 3 weeks and the start of the 4th, students will go to Crossville to take their road test. There the student will be 3rd party tested by one of our state certified examiners. The 4th week acts as the transition week for the students. They transition from training to obtaining their CDL license. After a student obtains their CDL license, they become eligible to work.
