he Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is a multimodal transportation agency serving one of the fastest-growing areas of the country. ADOT is responsible for planning, building and operating a complex highway system in addition to building and maintaining bridges and the Grand Canyon Airport. A major component of the organization is the Motor Vehicle Division, which provides title, registration and driver-license services to the general public throughout the state of Arizona.
From the early 20th century, trucks were the primary mode for hauling copper from Arizona mines to processing and manufacturing plants, raw cotton to gins and mills, cattle to railheads and local markets, and citrus to packing and distribution centers. Today’s modern trucking industry operates in every aspect of economic life, delivering textbooks, medical supplies, retail goods and the building blocks of highways and energy production for the state’s growing population.
HDS Truck Driving Institute has proudly served Southern Arizona since 1991. We are a fully-accredited educational institution that has trained thousands of students to not only pass their Commercial Driver License (CDL) test, but to become the kind of professional driver that companies seek. It’s what we’ve done for 20 years, and it’s why our graduates are working for many of the nation’s top over-the-road carriers, as well as regional and local companies.
The most important person on the campus. Without them, there would be no need for the training center. Not a cold enrollment statistic, but a flesh and blood human being with feelings and emotions like our own. Not someone to be tolerated so that we can do our thing, they are our thing. They are not dependent on us; rather, we are dependent on them. In 1999, Gary P. Williams unlocked the doors to Southwest Truck Driver Training for the very first time, with just a handful of family members and friends to help in getting the school rolling. Since then, Southwest has built a good reputation throughout Arizona, Nevada and the local community - as well as with employers. Southwest Truck Driver Training has locations in Tucson, Phoenix, and N. Las Vegas, with plans of expanding into other areas.
