Temperature-controlled truckload carrier KLLM Transport Services has partnered with Cedar Valley College to open a new KLLM Driving Academy in Lancaster, Texas.

The two-story, 44,000-square-foot school will offer an 18-day accelerated truck driver training program to Texas residents. It features classroom, behind-the-wheel training, road and range instruction and driver safety education.

The facility features modern classrooms, an onsite physical lab, electronic log and refrigeration labs, a 4-acre backing range, full-service cafeteria and lodging facilities for 43 students. The new residence hall section for the school provides students with refrigerators, microwave ovens, cable TV, WiFi, laundry facilities, computer labs and a study hall.

Upon graduation and earning a CDL-A license, students will have the opportunity to be placed as a professional driver with KLLM.

"We will be training company drivers and independent contractors, helping them earn their permit and CDL-A and learn about accident prevention, professional driving techniques, D.O.T. regulations, cargo claim management, temperature control chain compliance, and CSA compliance, safety and accountability,” said Kirk Blankenship, KLLM’s vice president of driver resources.

The academy is fully accredited and holds a Career School Certificate by the Texas Workforce Commission and is open to any resident of Texas. KLLM currently operates two other driving academies in Illinois and Mississippi for students in those states.
