How much does the class cost?

Tuition is $4,000. There are some upfront costs associated with enrollment (drug test, background check, DOT physical) which total about $140.

How long is your class?

3 weeks. Monday – Friday 7am til 5:30pm. You will graduate with 150 hours of training.
New classes start every Monday.

Do you offer lodging for people from outside of your area?

Yes, lodging is available at a local extended stay hotel. You are responsible for your own transportation to get to Tennessee and to travel between the hotel and school (about 15 minutes).

Do you help me find a job?

Yes. We work with over 35 carriers that hire students straight out of school. We will help you find a job with the carrier of your choice.

How many students are in each class?

Peak keeps classes small so you have much more time behind the wheel. There are only 4 students for every 1 instructor. Classes start every Monday.

I don’t live in Tennessee. Can I still train at Peak Truck Driving School in Maryville, TN?

Yes. You must have your CDL learners permit in your home state first, but you can train here.
The 3rd party exam (pre-trip, backing skills and road test) at the end of your 3 weeks is included in your tuition and done on site at Peak. That final exam result will transfer back to your home state’s DMV. After class, you just go to your local DMV to get your Class A CDL. You don’t have to change your driver’s license to Tennessee.

How does your financing work?

The school holds your loan and you pay us back starting 60 days after graduation. More details are available by talking to our staff.

How do I enroll?

Call 865-268-8520 or email for instructions. You can also enroll online.

I already have a Class B license and want to get a Class A license. Do I have to take all 3 weeks of the course?

Yes, the 150 hour Class A CDL training is the only training offered at Peak at this time.
