About Us

We have a passion for driving trucks and for truck driver training. Our Number 1 goal is your Safety!  Our next goal is to be innovative by seeking out the best way to train new drivers and as a result we believe our training system is the best available to you.

Everyone at Interstate Truck Driving School believes very strongly in two things:

  1. We put forth the effort every day to create the best training experience possible.
  2. We believe in our students. It is our experience that anyone with the desire and commitment can succeed, provided they are given the proper support and guidance.

In order to provide you with the best preparation possible, we have a couple of licensed instructors that are former State CDL Examiners with combined experience of 30 years administering the very test you will need to pass. These professional instructors enable us to make sure we give you complete and accurate information to prepare you for your test. If you have trouble with the road test we will concentrate on getting you the help you need to pass before we go on to the next phase of your training. We use this two-phase approach to truck driver training because we firmly believe this is the BEST way to train new drivers.

We have invested in the latest state of the art Truck Driving Simulators. Your simulator training will make you a better driver with less time and stress than traditional training. Our students and our instructors love the benefit of the simulators! It will be well worth your time to stop by our school and check out our simulators.

We are one of two private schools in Minnesota that are members of the Commercial Vehicle Training Association. Both Interstate Truck Driving School and Heavy Metal Truck Training are committed to keeping the best interest of our students in mind by participate in CVTA so we stay on the leading edge of best possible training techniques. Both schools provide you the same access to companies that are hiring truck driving school graduates so you are assured of a good driving opportunity when you complete your training.

Recently, one of our foreign born students completed his 160 Hour Professional Tractor Trailer Training program. Here is what he had to say before he left: "It was a very good experience at Interstate Truck Driving School. I loved the atmosphere. Everyone is friendly and has a positive attitude. They make you feel welcome and you feel like you are with family. Thank you Interstate!"

We really appreciate these words....especially with what is going on right now in the USA. Interstate Truck Driving School prides itself on being inclusive and providing an environment where anyone with the determination to work toward their success has that opportunity with our full support regardless of their age, race, gender, color of skin, sexual orientation or county of origin.

We have been in business 19 years and have trained people of every possible description and we are absolute in our conviction that empowering people with the skills they need to become financially secure is a positive outcome for everyone in this country and beyond. Every man, woman, and child on this planet is our brother or sister and we will treat them as family when they walk in the door. With all of our family, we believe in tough love when necessary, we believe in empowerment, we do not believe in entitlement. We also recognize that our society has made some mistakes in the past and it is the best interest of all of us to work toward healing old wounds and creating harmony and unity. We are very proud of the work we have done here at Interstate over the years collaborating with agencies like the YWCA that has created some very powerful success stories. We are very grateful for all of the opportunities in the past to expand our Interstate family and look forward to many more in the years to come.
