CDL Truck Driving
The Professional Truck Driving Department offers a variety of training options for students wishing to work in the transportation industry. All students must participate in a random drug-testing program either through SLCC or, if company sponsored, through the company’s drug-testing program. People 18 or older may obtain a CDL for driving within the state of Utah (intra-state). People over 21 years of age may obtain a CDL for driving between the 50 states (inter-state). When hiring, most companies for insurance reasons, require applicants to be 23 years of age. Most diesel systems technology technicians working in the field are required to have a CDL driver’s license.
