SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A CDL truck driver training school is now open at Ivy Tech Community College.

160 Driving Academy had its grand opening on Wednesday in the Ivy Café on the South Bend campus. 

The academy, which is the nation’s largest and fastest growing vocational training program, looks to help solve the shortage of truck drivers.

With wages on the rise, Steve Gold, the academy's founder, believes that now is the perfect time to for the program to start. 

“There are not enough truck drivers in the United States. The wages for the starting truck driver are up thirty percent from where it was three or four years ago before the pandemic. So, trucking is an excellent place to start making money,” said Gold.
