    Tom B.

I'm also a trainer for the last year and a half and just got to train an adta graduate. Many thanks to Mike, Jaden and Tim for the quality school they run and getting me a great career earning great money.

    Eric P.
  • I graduated a little over a 2 1/2 months ago, since then I have started working for an industry leader(which they found) and have been earning great money since day 1! I highly recommend ADTA, their trainers (best in the business) had me ready to enter the trucking industry after 3 wks and I could barely start a truck when I started! I contribute my success to the skills and knowledge I learned at American Driver Training Academy!
