Students train on Volvo Tractors 

Students will be trained using late model conventional Volvo tractors with straight 10 speed manual transmissions.  Trailers used during training will be flatbed and van trailers up to 53 feet long to provide the best possible training.  Our tractors have safety features factory installed or added to them to insure the safest possible training.

Our campus is conveniently located near Exit 50 Interstate 81 at 134 Joe R. McCrary Road in Fall Branch, Tennessee.  We are approximately 15 minutes south of Johnson City and 20 minutes from Kingsport.

The Campus covers three acres with two buildings on the property. 

CCS  is currently operating in a mobile office and classroom facility at the far end of the tractor trailer training field while its’ new offices and classrooms are being completed. Behind the main building and connected to the truck lab is the driver training range.  The range area is used for tractor trailer operations training and backing practice. The entrance to our Business Office in the mobile office is through the door at the east end of the building (left side) and entrance to the classroom, break room and restrooms is the door on the west end of the building.

CCS uses a number of visual aids and modern equipment in our classroom to enhance student learning. On the driving range, students will find several stations for the hands-on practice of backing maneuvers in preparation for the Commercial Driver License test.

All CDL Permit and Endorsements written tests are conducted by the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security in their facilities. Final CDL driving test is conducted by TDOS-approved Third Party Examiner right on the CCS campus.

 

 

Please Note: Students should never park or enter into the driver training range area with their personal vehicle.  All car traffic should enter through the second entrance on Joe R. McCrary Road.  This entrance will bring students into the parking lot area.
