Our Twenty Year Anniversary is coming up soon.

In less than six months, Interstate Truck Driving School will be celebrating it's 20th Anniversary.  During that time, Interstate has maintained a perfect safety record with zero insurance claims due to collisions and zero DOT reportable collisions.  

 

We are very proud of our Perfect Safety Record and we are committed to keep our record going.  We use the best equipment available and strive to use the very best teaching methods.  We are one of very few private truck driving schools in the country to take advantage of high powered driving simulators.

Electronic Logging Device Update Sept 7th

Despite efforts by Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association, it looks like the requirement to use Electronic Logging Devices will become mandatory December 18th of this year.  Owner Operators are opposed to the rules while the American Trucking Association is in favor of the mandate. 

 

There have been lawsuits filed in federal courts and legislative efforts to delay the new rules but they all have failed.  Some owner operators are still hoping for a miracle but it looks like this is a train that will stay on track.  Stay tuned for further updates.
