The CDL Class A training program is a five-week, full-time program designed to teach students how to safely operate a Class A commercial vehicle and obtain a Class A commercial driver’s license. Students will receive theory instruction to prepare them for the written exams at the MVD. Once you have received your permit, you will attend three weeks of behind the wheel training with a CNM Ingenuity CDL instructor. Instruction is based on the New Mexico CDL Manual and the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration requirements including airbrakes, vehicle inspection, manual transmission, backing skills, and over the road driving. We will assist you in obtaining your Commercial Learner’s Permit.
