Due to new federal regulations & increased interest in the training, our Wait List to get in is very significant.

We have enough students on the Wait List to fill at least the next 9 classes which carries us to early summer 2023.

Class Information

Entry Level Driver Training

Tuition-  $1,495.00 

The AP120 Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) course schedule is as follows:  (4) 8 hour classroom days, held on 2 consecutive Thursdays/Fridays or Fridays/Saturdays, typically the first 2 weekends of a month.  This time is spent preparing students for the written test (taken in class on day 4; $13 DMV fee) for the Commercial Learner's Permit.  Students must have this permit to enroll in the AP131 Road & Range course. 

The AP131 Road & Range course will consist of (2) 8 hour classroom days held on the 3rd or 4th week (same weekday structure) of the same month.  Up to 15 hours one-on-one drive time will follow with one of our trainers, at the end of which students will test with us.   State guidelines require testing be done by an examiner other than the driving trainer. (ie, you will drive train with one HutchCC examiner, test with another HutchCC examiner.) Hutchinson Community College is a State of Kansas approved 3rd Party CDL Testing Center.    

The HutchCC CDL course fees do not include any DMV fees for tests, licenses, or endorsements.  Please contact your local DMV for their specific fee information.
