CDL courses now offered for Patrick County students

Beginning January 9, the Patrick County site of Patrick Henry Community College is partnering with Wytheville Community College to offer truck driving classes. 

This six-week truck driving program includes a combination of classroom lecture, skills range, and on-the-road driving to prepare students for the Commercial Driver License (CDL) exam. The class meets from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday from January 9 to February 24.  Space is limited and registration is now open.

The class is eligible for the Workforce Credential Grant which enables qualifying students to pay only one-third of the cost of tuition. It normally costs $4,500, but successful completion of the class could be earned for a maximum of $1,500 with the grant, and additional financial assistance is available to assist students with those remaining costs.

To apply, go to and click on the Commercial Driver’s License link. Or, for more information, call (276) 656-0260.
