LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Sowela Technical Community College is now registering for the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training program.

The Class A license training program is a comprehensive 245-hour classroom and behind-the-wheel program that covers Louisiana’s rules and regulations, pre-trip inspections, backing pad skills, and on-the-road skills.

Scholarships and payment plans are available for those that qualify.

The 7-week class begins Monday, May 3, 2021.

Students will meet Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis with a limited number of training seats available for each program.

The final skills test to receive the state license will be administered by state-approved examiners.

Those that complete the course will obtain their state license to drive tractor-trailers, dump trucks, tow trucks, delivery trucks, tanker trucks, and flatbed trucks.
