About Central States safety

& driver training

about us

At Central States Safety & Driver Training we focus on putting safe drivers on the road. That's why we train largely through on-hands training & real world driving. What better way to learn how to handle difficult driving situations than to be in the middle of it all with your professional trainer!


First, our students learn the rules of the road in the classroom. We help you prepare for each test getting you one step closer to driving on your own. Next, students receive hands-on training from our driving school instructors. Students learn all the skills needed such as basic control, lane position, double-clutching, shifting, backing and traffic laws & regulations.


We are a privately owned school, and we are not the most expensive, but we are the largest in the Midwest. Why? We understand that a career as a professional semi driver can open the door to a lifetime of job opportunities. Proper training is critical to your potential for success. Our goal is your success.


There is such a need for good truck drivers, the industry is booming! There are several large trucking companies that hire students right of our class. There are so many opportunities all over the United States. We will train you so you are ready to apply to those companies with confidence.
