If you want to get the run around wondering where your goods are while losing sales in the process, these are the truckers for you. Worst truckers ever, both unreliable and careless.
Good dependable company. Great people too.Always find the owner and his brother there to help in any way possible. Their secretary is outstanding also. I've been very pleased with these folks.
I have called several times this week to get a quote and keep getting an answering machine. Not very good service
Wow!! It is so clear that you do not know what you are talking about at all. Apparently you did not do any search either. For one the DMV can and does test more than one person a day. As in this case you are referring to, which PROVES Desert Trucking is not exaggerating when they say almost 100% success. Get your facts straight before you bad mouth good people. The good reviews are all different people, actual real people, not using a fake name like fleetwood whatever or the other one posted 1 yr later being the same guy but different fake names. Jealous of Desert. It is hard times for a lot of people, and maybe on occasions a student might sleep there. But do you know why..... No, you don't cause if you did you would know they are there because they live in Yerington, Ely or somewhere far away and they can't afford the gas to drive back and forth or hotel room. Helping someone to improve their education so they can get a better job? What is bad or disgusting in that?? Guaranteed once they get their CDL they are gone the same day and working shortly after that too. No, the trucks may not be new, do you know how much it costs to own or maintain a truck or what the wear and tear the students do, no, you do not. All I can say is that everyday I had the opportunity to practice my skills if I wanted and when I got my permit, everyday I drove on the streets and freeway. I am Michelle94 I got my CDL the 20th of December, along with other fellow students passing the test the same day, *footnote so there's no misunderstanding* we went at different times on the same day. I still stand behind Desert, all instructors have current CDL's(no DUI'S) and are truly good people. So few good people in the world any more and sad to see others try to portray them otherwise. For the record I was not asked or told by Jimmy or anyone else to re-post anything I couldn't go without saying anything cause I WAS there and common since will tell you more than one person tests at DMV and they pass. I got a saying "Stand up for what is right, even if you stand alone" Thank you again Jimmy and Ron for teaching me and sharing your knowledge.
Wow! It is pretty clear all the positive reviews are written by Desert under different user names. Frequently on the same day! There are many CDL training schools in our area and when I did reserch for myself about attending Desert I was horrified to discover they were able to still train people after their Nevada DMV school lic. was suspended for several months due to fraud. I still went out and looked and found a run down office with dilapitated trucks. The owner was not only desperate for my money and offering discounts when I said I would think about it, but I think he lives in the office. Two weeks later he called me back to see if I wanted to sign up, but I had already started at another school. True to form he started to bad mouth the school I was at, but everything worked out just fine. I graduated in three weeks and got a job at the Washoe County School District driving a bus. My advise to anyone interested to going to a driving school is to actually meet the staff, see the facility, and look at their buses/trucks.
Jimmy claims 100% success rate and he is right. Because he and his staff will work with you as long as need to ensure you will attain your class a. It also helps that 95% of your time is spent in truck, and they will not kick you out like the other schools.Desert Truck Driving School is truly the best. Thanks Jimmy.
I just passed my CDL test today, and it is the greatest feeling. Going to Desert Trucking is the only school to go to, there is no rush for you to complete or to test. You test when YOU are ready to, and if you fail once or twice you do not get kicked out. Unlike the other schools, you get behind the wheel on your first day. You have the choice to practice your skills or to watching educational videos. Others school you don't get to drive for weeks and the instructor(owner) doesn't even have his CDL, too many DUI's. If you can only come in once or twice a week it's ok or only on weekends is fine too. At Desert Trucking School the staff is great, and they all actually care about the students. The owner Jimmy has years and years of experience, and he teaches everything you will ever need to know about trucking. He takes pride in his trucks and his students and as far as I know every student that has come here left with their CDL's. My enrollment number was 1,600, so before me 1,599 students had received their CDL's. Ron is another instructor there who also has years and years of trucking experience, he will take you step by step on your skills, and make you work on your weak points. I do not think I could of come this far and feel so confident with my skills and driving if I had went anywhere else. The cost is very reasonable for all that comes with it. In all honesty Jimmy could and should be charging more for his class, I've heard him say several times "He's in it for the students." And it shows when students from the other schools leave their school to start at Desert Trucking, I met 4 or 5 just while I was there. The bad reviews that are on this page comes from another competitor school, trying to make Desert look bad. That's just sad....... so all I can say is check out all the schools, no one beats Desert Trucking in price, trained and licensed instructors, getting in the truck same day and pretty much guaranteed you'll get you CDL. How fast you get it is left up to you. Thank you Jimmy and Ron!!!!!!!
