  1. Thanks for the overview of your CDL training program. I’ve done some research online and I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve seen about Wilson. I’m looking to start training around the beginning of April. Do I submit my application 30 days or so before I want to start? Thanks

  2. How long does trainees ride with trainer? Also didn't know that about the med card. Glad u made this video. Super excited as well.

  3. I definitely like that they are small groups and not big ones. I feel like if there to big that anything I need to learn will not sink in lol. So the smaller the better
