The idea of DRIVE509 started while I was working for a food delivery company. Like most people I started as a night shift warehouse picker…not my dream job but a foot in the door and a paycheck to feed my family. I slowly progressed and worked my way into a driving position delivering products to the Northwest and eventually into a lead driver position where I helped train new hires and manage drivers and customers. After ten years of employment, it became clear that my passion was not just in driving but was in training others to drive as well.
Training others brought me an undeniable sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. It gave me purpose. It felt good to help people obtain a job that would help them provide for their families. It felt good to know I was helping provide quality CDL drivers for an industry that literally keeps this country running. It became clear that I wanted to focus all my attention on training quality drivers. So, I took a leap of faith and went out on my own to create a company that would provide superior training to those seeking a CDL.
Over the past 14 months, DRIVE509 has become one of the best CDL schools this side of the mountains. My instructors and I always push our students to be better and to be over prepared. Most CDL schools and training programs simply train students to pass a test. Being a certified state CDL tester, I understand the complexity of the state test and ensure our students are prepared to pass. However, we know training is not just be about passing a test. Our number one goal at Drive509 is to prepare our students for the real world of driving big rigs. It is about safety and preparation for situations that may occur.
Though DRIVE509 is a new company, we are filling huge gaps in the CDL training world. We care about our students, offer superior training, and help our students obtain local employment. If you would like to know more about my company and how we take care of our students, please google DRIVE509 and check out our Google reviews. We look forward to the opportunity to help you in achieving your careers goals as a professional truck driver.
