Class Information

Entry Level Driver Training

Tuition-  $1,495.00 

The AP120 Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) course schedule is as follows:  (4) 8 hour classroom days, held on 2 consecutive Fridays/Saturdays, typically the first 2 weekends of a month.  This time is spent preparing students for the written test (taken at a DMV the week following class) for the Commercial Learner's Permit.  Students must have this permit to enroll in the AP131 Road & Range course. 

The AP131 Road & Range course will consist of (2) 8 hour classroom days held on the 4th Friday/Saturday of the same month.  Up to 15 hours one-on-one drive time will follow with one of our trainers, at the end of which students will test.   State guidelines require testing be done by an examiner other than the driving trainer.  Hutchinson Community College is a State of Kansas approved 3rd Party CDL Testing Center.    

The HutchCC CDL course fees do not include any DMV fees for tests, licenses, or endorsements.  Please contact your local DMV for their specific fee information.
