Student Testimonials

My experience here at Eagle was very good. I learned how to drive a truck in only 4 weeks. Eagle was a great school to come to. When I first walked in the door it was a little frightening but by the end of the class we were like family.

Life is always changing! With the help of these instructors and their teachings I'm hoping mine will be changing for the better. Very good classroom instructions and patience on the road! I will always be glad I chose Eagle!

Lisa J. Rockford location

Eagle Training was a great experience from start to finish. The knowledge expressed to me has been nothing short of excellent. Everyone was friendly and I knew that even in the future I can count on everyone at Eagle Training to continue their support in my career. Thanks.

Jason N. Rockford location

I must admit, I was very hesitant starting a new career as a CDL truck driver because of my lack of inexperience and knowledge in this field. I've learned from my instructors that giving up is not an option. Perseverance and dedication is what they know best. They were all very helpful and understanding.
