Starting July 8, Centralia College will be offering a commercial truck driving course, a standalone certification class that includes “hands-on skill development and instruction that aligns with the Department of Transportation,” according to the college. 

The course will teach students to maneuver a commercial vehicle in different traffic conditions, operate a tractor-trailer and navigate around obstacles. 

Students must be at least 18 years old, pass a federal Department of Transportation health and drug screening, have a valid Washington driver’s license, have no history of driving under the influence, hit and run, reckless or negligent driving in the past five years and have no more than three moving violations in the past three years. 

The course runs from July 8 through August 30 on Mondays through Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30  p.m. The total cost is $4,412.
