This is the truck school that you want to attend to get your class A CDL. Don't take my word for it, do your home work and see for your self.1) Mr George and Argel owner and instructor are bilingual, patient, direct, stay late or come in on Sundays if they have to, to get your CDL. They won't baby sit you or hold your hand. They teach you right and the rest is up to you. You will get your CDL.2) Everyone here works together. Everyone here helps each other out. You help put diesel in the Rigs, you throw the trash, you make coffee, sometimes you bring Donuts, you BBQ, the ones about to grad help the green hornes coming in, get it? You interact and socialize with class mates and instructors. We're all here for one thing, Get your CDL. The price is right! The Rigs are 10 speed. The yard is paved! Not dirt! Rain or shine, you practice. The BEST SCHOOL. Check it out for yourself. Thank you George and Argel. Your school is a success. I highly recommend your school to all future students that want to pursue their career in trucking. Here you get your Doubles, Triples, Tankers and Hazmat to go out there and get a good job and make some $$$$$$$$$. I want to shout out to my peeps, George, Argel, La Chula Princesa, The other George the joker lol, Waldo, Pelon and El Sikario. See you out there on the road or in the oil fields. Just listen for,,,,, Breaker, Breaker 1,9, This is Huggy Bear on your C B Radios.Peace!
I just went through the 40 hour refresher course at the Western Truck School in Bakersfield. I've read so many bad reviews of it that I wanted to write my own review. My whole experience here was amazing! The equipment was top shape, the instructors were very helpful, and there was a lot of driving involved. I had plenty of time to learn and practice the skills and go driving around town. Bakersfield is a good place to learn--not too much traffic (most of the time) and lots of different environments. Phil is a good instructor, and he taught me how to shift up and down both up-hill and down-hill. The other current instructor, Matt, is very easy going and a good instructor as well. I learned how to do the skills from him. Before I went there, I researched many schools around Bakersfield. All of them either wouldn't talk to me, or couldn't speak English, or wouldn't offer a shorter program than 160 hours. Western is the only truck school in town that does the 40 hour refresher. They also help with job placement, which is a very important thing if you don't already have a job lined out. I give the team at Western Truck School 5 stars. Thanks to them for giving me such a good learning experience.....A Very Satisfied Customer

Despite the fact we live south of town, and are much closer to the truck driving schools on Union Avenue, we decided on Golden Pacific based on reviews. My husband was not disappointed. He passed his test on Monday, after only a month. With nothing negative to say about the school, I give them a 5 star, and would recommend the school to those serious about getting their class A license.
