50+ Years of Truck Driver Excellence

In 1969, the Central Tech Board of Education and Administration set out to develop a quality truck driver training program.

Central Tech felt it should be the mission of at least one technology center in Oklahoma to focus part of its efforts and resources toward serving one of the state’s largest industries – the trucking industry.

The Central Tech Truck Driver Training program utilizes classroom instruction, range, and road driving, as well as, practical application of skills used in highway driving.

Quality Training at Affordable Prices

In 1988, legislative leaders devised a way to upgrade and fund the expansion of the Truck Driver Training Program at Drumright. They were determined to make it “second-to-none” in the nation.

Central Tech continues to upgrade equipment, provide quality instruction, and expand facilities. The latest addition to the on-campus driving range was added in 2018.

The ‘West Point’ of CDL Schools! No one can match the instructors, facilities, and equipment. Don’t settle for second best!

There is no such thing as an overqualified truck driver.


News spreads fast. Industry recruiters snap up Central Tech graduates as fast as they can be trained. Today, the school has a placement rate of 98 percent and a reputation for turning out professional, employable trainees.

Ask professionals. They’ll agree. . . “The best insurance is a better driver, and the best drivers start at Central Tech.”

Don’t just take our word for it!
