Awesome school. I'm from the East Bay (Hayward) and I looked around everywhere for a good truck driving school. Like the posters here have mentioned everything here in the bay area is over priced, their schools are cramped ( 20+ students to a truck), and the instructors only care about their next paycheck. Sergio is the owner and the instructor for this school. He only takes a max of 4 students per class so everyone gets a shot to get their skill practice time in his yard and driving time around downtown Stockton. He's very patient. If you don't understand something either with the pre trip or the driving part he will find a way to phrase his instructions to something the student finds easy to understand. He works with your schedule. Classes are usually on the weekends but if you work weekends he might accommodate you to some days during the week. Most people have a lot of trouble with the pre trip exams but he has an excellent DVD and worksheet going over the pre trip on his truck step by step.His truck is a '95, 9speed freightliner. Sergio teaches you how to double clutching which is REQUIRED at DMV. No experience driving a manual car? No problem. Sergio will take you step by step from as something basic as just getting the truck moving to double clutching, upshifting, downshifting, cross shifting. In fact, it is easier to learn to drive this truck if you don't know how to drive manual cars. I only knew automatic and I passed my test. He offers many hour courses depending on your needs. If you have experience driving a big rig like this you might opt out for a 40hr course. I had NO experience so I decided to go for a 160hr course. Trust me, I needed all of my hours. I passed my test Jan 6th of this year. The other two guys that started around the same time as me also passed their tests. If I had to choose again I would definitely choose to come learn to become a professional driver with Sergio. He is the man for the job.

Id like to leave some feed back about this school,for people like me not knowing what to Look for when choosing the right school. Im going to keep this simple i just got my CDL threw I.T.S it only took me 60hours to pass all tests to get my CDL. Mr. Franco knows his stuff. Everyone that has attended the courses have passed, ive seen about five Not including myself. He has the right equipment to learn in, anyone can pass the test in a five speed, with a flat bed and a window in the back of the cab to make it way to easy to pass but, guess what your only cheating yourself because when actully doing a road Test for an employer their Going to look at you like why are you. Not able to drive our equipment? all trucking jobs dont have flat beds and a window in the back of the cab to see out of, WHAT YOU DRIVE HERE YOU WILL BE DRIVING AT A REAL JOB. last but not least the groups are smaller than other trucking schools which means more driving timefor you,other places are so full that all your going to be doing is watching others drive ive heard t a few times. Dont waist your time off and money with other schools go with I.T.S you and your fam will be glad you did, if not find out the hard way its your money. Im working now and can drive any truck with confidence ����

Before I made my decision on coming here I called around for quotes and the most affordable school was international truck school for me. My biggest problem was how I was gonna train while working 5 days a week but Sergio told me he would be able to work with my schedule he was able to do that. Man did I make the right decision to come here the man Sergio is smart, knows what he's doing, very patient and let's his students learn at there own pace and taught everything you need to know by the time I went down to dmv I went through my test and remebered everything he taught me and past the 1st time just like the other students I was with. He teaches pre-trip inside the cab and outside the truck,driving safely, all the skills dmv may ask you to do, log books & much much more. Give Sergio a call to start training with him you won't regret it i know I dont! Thanks alot Sergio
