SUB STANDARD CDL TRAINING IN EQUIPMENT NOT MEETING MOST COMP

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY WITH A1 TRUCKING SCHOOL FROM FRESNO, CALIFORNIA.............ALOT OF TRUCKING COMPANIES WON'T HIRE YOU AFTER GRADUATION FROM THIS SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY ONLY USE DAY CABS AND TRAILERS LESS THAN 53 FEET AND THEIR TRACTORS ONLY HAVE 6 GEAR TOY TRANSMISSIONS (THE TRUCKS HAVE A CAR CLUTCH IN THEM SO YOU DON'T GET THE CHANCE TO LEARN HOW TO DOUBLE CLUTCH).............TRUCKING COMPANIES GENERALLY HAVE 9 OR 10 SPEED TRANSMISSIONS THAT MOST DEFINITELY YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO DOUBLE CLUTCH THEM UNLESS THEY HAVE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION TRUCKS. TUITION WAS $1,700.00 WHICH I PAID BY PERSONAL CHECK. THE CHECK CLEARED MY BANK BUT WAS NEVER ENDORSED BY A1 WHICH I FIND VERY UNUSUAL. UPON ARRIVAL AT THE SCHOOL WE WERE TOLD WE NEEDED TO PAY $400.00 MORE FOR TESTING UP IN UTAH. WE PAID THIS BY CASH AS I SENT MY GIRLFRIEND FROM OHIO TO CALIFORNIA WITH JUST 1 CHECK WHICH THEY WOULD NEVER GIVE US A RECEIPT FOR THE $400.00 CASH AS REQUESTED AT THE TIME OF HANDING THEM THE CASH!!! TOTAL TUITION THEREFORE WAS $2,100.00 WHICH WE HAD TO REQUEST AND FIGHT FOR A RECEIPT FOR 5 WEEKS FROM THE OWNER FOR. CHECK WITH THE COMPANY YOU WANT TO WORK FOR BEFORE GIVING THIS TRUCK DRIVING TRAINING SCHOOL ANY OF YOUR MONEY. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE WE DID. THE COMPANY WE WANTED TO GOTO WORK FOR SAID A1 FRESNO CALIFORNIA TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL IS NOT ON THEIR APPROVED C.D.L. TRUCK DRIVER TRAINING SCHOOL LIST !!!
