FleetForce Truck Driving School, one of Florida’s proprietary, entry-level commercial driver training programs, announced it will expand into Sarasota-Manatee beginning Oct. 4, 2021. In collaboration with State College of Florida (SCF), the expansion will make this the second of FleetForce Truck Driving School’s two locations in the state, with projected plans to further grow into Venice by next year.
The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training school will be the first to operate in the Sarasota-Manatee region with training programs taking place on SCF grounds. New classes begin every Monday. Students can choose between either a 40-hour Class B or a 160-hour Class A course to obtain their CDL license, which certifies them as commercial drivers. With support from Suncoast CareerSource, most graduates have job offers awaiting them upon completion.
