Awesome school. I'm from the East Bay (Hayward) and I looked around everywhere for a good truck driving school. Like the posters here have mentioned everything here in the bay area is over priced, their schools are cramped ( 20+ students to a truck), and the instructors only care about their next paycheck. Sergio is the owner and the instructor for this school. He only takes a max of 4 students per class so everyone gets a shot to get their skill practice time in his yard and driving time around downtown Stockton. He's very patient. If you don't understand something either with the pre trip or the driving part he will find a way to phrase his instructions to something the student finds easy to understand. He works with your schedule. Classes are usually on the weekends but if you work weekends he might accommodate you to some days during the week. Most people have a lot of trouble with the pre trip exams but he has an excellent DVD and worksheet going over the pre trip on his truck step by step.
His truck is a '95, 9speed freightliner. Sergio teaches you how to double clutching which is REQUIRED at DMV. No experience driving a manual car? No problem. Sergio will take you step by step from as something basic as just getting the truck moving to double clutching, upshifting, downshifting, cross shifting. In fact, it is easier to learn to drive this truck if you don't know how to drive manual cars. I only knew automatic and I passed my test. He offers many hour courses depending on your needs. If you have experience driving a big rig like this you might opt out for a 40hr course. I had NO experience so I decided to go for a 160hr course. Trust me, I needed all of my hours. I passed my test Jan 6th of this year. The other two guys that started around the same time as me also passed their tests. If I had to choose again I would definitely choose to come learn to become a professional driver with Sergio. He is the man for the job.
