Frequently Asked Questions for new students - FAQ

New Student FAQ

What if I do not pass the DOT physical?

The DOT regulations do not require you to pass a physical to drive our trucks or take our training, however, you will need a DOT physical to get a job driving a truck.  If you have an issue that prevents you from passing the DOT physical we will guide you through the process of seeking a waiver or a medical remedy to help you.  We will give you honest advice but ultimately it is your decision if you want to continue to proceed with your training.

Do you offer refunds?

We have a written refund policy based on how much training your have received.  You will receive a copy of the refund policy with your contract when you enroll.  

What if something happens that interrupts my training?

We will honor your training for up to 24 months.  So if you get sick, break a leg, a family member gets sick, or any other reason you have to take a sabbatical from your training, we will pick up right where you left off when you are able to return.  The only additional charge will be for a new DOT drug screen required by the Feds if has been more than 90 days since your last drug screen.

Is housing available?

We do not have housing on site but there is a motel (Clarion) within a block of our South St. Paul campus.

Are you on a bus line?

Yes, the 71 Route runs within a block of our So St Paul Campus.
