Navy Sailor Gets CDL & Teams Up with Wife in Truck Driving School in Southern California at California Career School

Leslie and husband 018
Congrats to the Zimmerman team for their recent success  driving for Auron Trucking, a subcontractor for FedEx.  Chris and Leslie are two of our newest students driving our success.  Chris Zimmerman, a former U.S. Navy sailor and his beautiful wife Leslie sent this testimonial to our Southern California Truck Driving School.

Chris Zimmerman was stationed at the 32nd Street Naval Station in San Diego, but when faced with staying in the US Navy or getting out, he was not sure what he wanted to do next in his life.  Tired of being away from his family he spoke with another US Navy Sailor who had success getting his truck driving career off the ground after he got his Commercial Truck Driving License through California Career School. Chris then took the next step of enrolling at California Career School in Southern California, near the  Naval Station on 32nd St in San Diego California, in January while on active duty.  When he transitioned out of the military, he already had a job at FedEx waiting for him.  Shortly after, he saw the opportunity to make $100,000 plus as a team driving with his wife.

This was a great opportunity for his wife Leslie to spend some time with him as well as have her own career.  She decided to attend California Career School, got her Commercial Truck Driving License, and is now driving a big rig  with her husband as a team.

A Perfect Plan comes together with help from California Career School!



US Navy Sailor Southern California Truck Driving School Graduate testimonial

“The reason I decided to go to California Career School is because my husband had attended the school and really enjoyed it! California Career School also has the best reputation we found, it has great job placement opportunities, awesome instructors and professional atmosphere. As a woman coming into a “man’s world”
I was nervous but everyone made me feel just like another student. It was refreshing on the nerves!

Now my husband and I have great jobs and get to be together.
We love it!”
