Are you an employee of Bozzuto's Inc.?(Required)

Are you looking for a new and rewarding career path without years of commitment and the student loans that come with a traditional college degree?

Nearly everything that touches your life has traveled to your local stores on a truck, from food to medications, to home goods, even your car! Right now there is a driver shortage in the trucking industry in the United States, with an estimated 80,000+ drivers needed ASAP. In less than ten years this number is more than expected to double to more than 160,000.

Big Rig Driving Academy is training our graduates to drive, not just pass the DMV test. Our mission is to produce road-ready drivers equipped with the knowledge and skills to keep our loads moving and our roads safe for our families.


  • The career path for CDL A is bright! The average entry level CDL A truck driver makes $28+ per hour with experienced drivers making $40+ per hour.
  • A CDL A license gives you the most opportunities - graduates can drive for a local employer, regionally, or nationally with an “over-the-road” carrier driving CDL Class A or CDL Class B.
  • With our schedule flexibility and quick start times you can finish a 160 Hour Program at Big Rig Driving Academy in as little as one month.

Big Rig Driving Academy Offers

  • Flexible scheduling, small classroom groups, and one-on-one pre-trip, maneuvers, and road training.
  • Driver fundamentals not tested by the DMV test including hands- on drop and hook training and introduction to hours of service, critical skills used daily by every successful driver.
  • Self-paced FMCSA required Entry Level Driver Training and HazMat certification.
