For being a fairly new company / School to my knowledge, the experience and training from them I received I would have to say that it was worth every penny… Everyone of them care about what they’re doing there and take pride and making sure that every qualified driver receives his or her CDL… Thank you all very much for having me as part of the fine Capital Transportation Academy family!!!! My Name is Nathan Brown 🀚🏽 Don’t know how my brothers name got up there!!!

The teachers are very experienced and take the time out to make sure you will succeed. The classroom setting is excellent and the yard is perfect for practicing your maneuvers. Thank you Capital for making my experience one to always remember and I will definitely recommend anyone to attend. If you put in the work, they will make sure you cross the finish line!

I loved my time with the Capital transportation team. Everyone works great together. If you are considering going to school to drive a commercial vehicle this is the place. I considered going to Roadmaster and 160driving academy but I didn’t want a manual restriction and a friend of mine who went to the program suggested it to me and I’m so glade that I did. Thank you Guys Brandon, Mel, Henry, Cody, Jayson, Jeff and Mike appreciate everyone.

If your looking for a school to help you pass your CDL test come to Capital Transportation and be aware of {Road Master} bad school! I recently graduated from Capital..Think Capital babyπŸ’•

Review β„–5

Capital Driving Academy prepared me for my CDL exam. They helped put me in touch with a grant program called Roads2Work which covered the cost of my schooling. The instructors were knowledgeable and the course content made me feel confident going into my test. They are invested in helping students find employment after graduation. The school also made available both automatic and manual trucks.

Review β„–8

I went through one interview with this company and they said they was going to hire me . set me up for a second interview with the president of the day before the appointment they canceled and said somebody else got the job I feel that’s bad business I was already setting up something for my kids to get off the bus and on the bus so I was putting that in motion I was putting everything in motion to get the job to be an instructor with these people and then they bailed on me not good just thought I’d throw that out there. Very disappointed

Review β„–11

Great school with great instructors! You get out what you put in. I studied hard for 5 weeks straight and passed my test on the 1st time. Some people will complain about some of the instructors but if you dont take it serious they wont take you serious. Be about your business and get in and get out. They even allow you to come in on Fridays and Saturdays, when they are technically closed, to get more practice and hours in. They also have legit and top recruiters come in like Schneider, DNO, and sygma. Love the atmosphere. They give you a week of schooling and then you hit the yard. The in-class schooling really helps once you make it to the yard and start doing pre-trip, maneuvers and Road. Thank you Mr. Brandon, Mr. Henry, Mr. Jeff, Mr. Cody, Mr. Mel, Mr. Mike and Big shout out to my Dawg Mr. Jason.

If you need/want to get your CDL, this is a great place. All the instructors are great, theyll put in as much work as you do to help you get there. Companies will try to poach you while youre training here, almost an everyday occurrence, so not only do you learn everything you need to succeed but you can also get hired before training is complete.

Review β„–16

I cant say enough good things about this school. If you need a Class A CDL, go to Capital.

Special shout out to Brandon in the classroom, Henry on the yard and the Mel man on the road, my guys.

Review β„–20

Capital is one of the best Trucking schools with no doubt. The course (in-class, yard, and on the road) was very well structured and the instructors are all highly qualified. If you are looking to get your CDL A or B with zero knowledge in trucking, this is absolutely the best choice for you. I went to this school with zero experience in trucking and in 5 weeks I passed my CDL A on my first attempt with no restriction. Thank you Capital.

Review β„–21

Review β„–41

Capital transportation is a premier, hands-on, extensive, thorough school with so many benefits that I was beyond satisfied with the service and result I received from the professional staff members and seasoned and retired former drivers turned instructors who have a deep passion in helping you accomplish every part of the courses. They helped with meAnd I appreciate their in-person one-on-one approach throughout the orientation, parking lot maneuvers and logged in behind the wheel road time and always implemented the β€œno man left behind” approach when connecting with each person. With over 6 instructors and like 8 or 9 truck and trailers for each class, you’ll have plenty of individual time with their equipment and personnels. I’m forever grateful to the staff members, thank you ALL. Ask for Dom when calling, he was very detailed and thorough in helping me weigh out the options and futures and I’m glad I made a sound decision. I choose Capital Transportation Academy and you should too. Tell them Gus sent you

Review β„–47

Capital transportation academy is THEE BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!!! Where do I start....So originally I went to a meet and greet in November 2019 I made a decision at the first of the year I would go for it so I study for my temporary cdl permit which it took a minute but I did it!!! Capital stayed in contact with me thee entire time and gave assistance whenever I needed it. Covid unfortunately came and the start of school was postponed. I went to a week zoom class to brush up on soft skills which in turned paid for my schooling!! IT WAS FREE FREE FREE!!!Fast forward we did a week in class learning all the boring rules and regulations! The following 3 weeks after was all yard and road driving. Every instructor is Professional and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE if they can’t teach you to drive then honey you might want to try something else. I went from not knowing how to drive a 5 speed stick in my friends Neon lol to driving a 10 speed tractor trailer in 30 mins!!As Mr Mel says it’s all in the β€œPop pop” 🀣🀣 I appreciate all of my teachers (this is the shout out part) Mr. Jason your awesome you made me cry but it was tears of joy because you made me understand my offset maneuver when I was ready to give up. To Mr. Henry you were always patient no matter what and made my time there at ease (not like mr Mel lol) Mr Mike could tell the best stories about being out on the road and kick my a** with the alley dock as much as he could and drill sergeant Mr Brandon he will make sure you know your β€œpre-trip” come HELL OR HIGH water! So to all of you thank you my life is better!!

ThΓ© Capitol Transportation Accademy is a great school for CDL to go in Columbus. it is where I get licensed. there are a very professional management team from top to bottom whom want your success from, day one to the finish line. Each one of them is eager to their students to get their License as early as possible with a real teaching methods and no short cuts at all. But a real knowledge.I β€˜m very pleased the way CTA Instructors do the step by step instructions in the first couple of days.that first week teaching is the one that you take away through out to the graduation day. Stick on it and focus what you may have learned that week.Good luck.Abdullahi Horri.

Review β„–52

Capital Transportation Academy is a awesome place to get your Class A. First impressions are everything and after meeting with Mr. Bob I knew for sure Capital was the place for me.I had no experience before attending Capital Transportation but they make sure you have the tools you need to succeed.I was fortunate to spend time with each instructor in the yard or on the road. My advice to anyone interested in attending Capital is don’t get comfortable with just one instructor because with all their experience combined you can learn from each of them.I recently completed my training and I’m ready to pursue my new career as a professional truck driver.To all my instructors Jason, Mel, Jeff, Phil, Sarge and the Capital Transportation Academy staff thanks for all your help and believing in me.I would like to send a special thanks toMr. CrockettMr.EvansMr.LewisMr.CauseyThanks for welcoming me to Capital Transportation Academy Family!

After attending capital transportation Academy and receiving my CDL. I got a job with Ups with no experience. I am driving doubles an 53feeters .

Review β„–54

I drove all the way out here for open interviews and you guys canceled it and didn’t let anybody know. That’s a waste of gas and time and very inconsiderate I would never work for this company because they don’t care about people flat out

Review β„–56

Excellent place to learn how to get your CDL. All the instructors are very friendly and very very knowledgeable.

Review β„–57

Would recommend to anyone trying to get their CDL. Follow the material, follow the instructions. If youre new, you will get frustrated. If you get frustrated, take a break. Try again.Very helpful staff, very friendly. Small class size is a major plus. If something comes up, they will work with you. Best experience I couldve asked for

Capital is a great school to attend I completed 4 weeks training and passed my pre trip maneuverability and road test on the first try and got a decent job with hogan a day after graduation I recommend this school to anyone

Im an instructor at CTA. We strive to offer the best training experience in central ohio.

Review β„–60

When i started here i had absolutly no idea how to drive a manual transmission, much less a semi truck. Now i have my cdl and a great career ahead of me. All the instructors are very knowledgable. They wont hesitate to tell you what you did wrong but they also teach you how to correct it. I can honestly say this is the best cdl school in columbus, especially as they keep class sizes to no more than 8 people. You get a ton of individual instruction time.

Review β„–61

Capital Transportation is where I got my CDL training from. The training was phenomenal and the instructors knew everything needed to obtain a CDL. At capital you’ll receive much more time behind the wheel driving and on the skills pad than state requirement. I had about 56 hours of skills (backing up) and driving while the start only required a total of 40. I have never driven a manual (shifting gears) car before, but I learned to double clutch and shift a 10 speed. Crystal and Roy a great instructors and Crystal was a former examiner (she knows exactly what the examiner is looking for). It’s vital that you listen to the instructors and try your very best. When it’s NOT your turn to drive observe the other students because you can learn from their mistakes. Learning to drive a truck might appear simple but in actuality it takes a lot of listening, practice and effort. After the second week of training I considered quitting because I had a hard time backing up the truck. I got my CDL on March 28th with zero points on the skills test (backing up). It’s important that you continue to TRY because you’ll eventually understand the concept.Capital Transportation Academy is like a family, and once you join they will treat you as such. Tosha is my favorite person at Capital; she looks out for the students and displays sincere concern for the students’ success and overall happiness.Capital has good equipment and facility.If you go to Capital ask the instructors about Spock (my nickname)
