About our oversize and heavy-haul driver class.
The next class is April 20 – May 1, 2020 in Tulsa, OK.
Take your truck driving career to the next level.
We offer the only heavy-haul and oversize truck driver training class we know of in the world. We provide each student with over 80 hours of class and drive time behind the wheel of one of our power units (with sleeper) and heavy-haul trailers. After graduating you’ll have a complete understanding of all aspects of heavy-haul and oversize transport all the way up to “superload” classification (under 200,000 pounds). You’ll also have full confidence in what you are doing and be prepared to orchestrate your shipment and entire team from pick-up to delivery. Each student is worked with individually until they’re able to comfortably demonstrate a complete comprehensive understanding of the entire skill-set required to safely manage transport from start to finish. Each student will graduate a team commander and never assume any 3rd party contractor such as a bucket truck, pilot car, permit provider, etc. knows just exactly what to do in any given situation. Instead they’ll have a bullet proof plan, share it and oversee it while at the same time safely transporting their shipment. Continue to registration/payment page.
Our awesome training staff is equipped with well over 200 years of combined experience solely in the expertise of heavy-haul and oversize trucking all of the way through superloads which are the largest and heaviest items on earth. It’s what we’ve done all of our professional lives and our love for it is clearly written all over each of us.
Invest in yourself, your career, your education.
Average oversize/heavy haul driver pay ranges from 65-80g per year. Top performers earn 120g+ per year. Most heavy-haul and oversize drivers work 7- 8 months out of the year, drive fewer miles than other drivers and have job security that will extend well beyond their lifetime.
This is simple decision for many. This area of the transportation industry has had a generational training gap which has created an enormous shortage of heavy-haul and oversize truck drivers. If you want to advance into specialized trucking you’re spot-on with your timing as now is a wise time to do so. Why? The 70’s, 80’s and 90’s drivers got a nice full taste of the financial opportunity offered here. Understandably they weren’t eager to share their knowledge with many others. This was and is still is a very coveted trade but the truth is we need more trained drivers. Many more.
What you can expect after graduating our class.
Upon successful completion of our course you will feel confident with driving, directing and managing over-dimensional shipments up to 18′ in width (more than double the legal maximum width of 8′ 6″). You will also be fully proficient in heavy-haul shipments ie: all calculations from federal bridge formula to axle space, configurations and weights of up to 200,000 lbs. *You’ll be set for life as far as job security goes in this field. We’ll provide you with a comprehensive list of companies that are actively hiring. As long as your driving record is reasonable and you’re easy to work with getting employment in the industry should be a breeze as long as you don’t have any unreasonable demands.
*Each student that attends our class is not guaranteed to graduate. However, we work closely with our students to ensure each can demonstrate full working knowledge with total confidence. Testing is based on 3 parts:
Each student must have a single minimum score of 90% (A-) or a combined total of 275 points out of 300 total to graduate. We are unable to graduate/endorse anyone that is not A grade to perform at this level on a public road or highway. All test questions are covered thoroughly during training both in the classroom and the field.
We do not offer financial aid at this time. We are very interested in offering our students any type of grant(s), if you know of any that may apply please let us know about them.
Tuition for the class is $9,900.00. Continue to registration/payment page.
The future of this industry is very clear.
The majority of North Americas heavy-haul and oversize trucking drivers have retired in the last 20 years. Because this is a very coveted position within the industry few were trained to take over these driving positions. As technology grows, so does the weight, size and volume of heavy-haul and oversize shipments. This next new freight volume wave will be partially created by media hype of global warming and greener, smarter energy. This will impact freight volumes for decades as we source for new resources with less carbon emissions. The wind turbines were just the beginning. Specialized freight volumes will continue to increase and there’s simply not enough trained drivers to meet the demand.
