The PTDI Story:

Since 1986, the Professional Truck Driver Institute (PTDI) has been working with the carriers, truck driver training schools, insurance industry, and government to make safety a #1 priority in the trucking industry. PTDI is the first nonprofit organization to develop uniform skill performance, curriculum, and certification standards for the trucking industry and to award course certification to entry-level truck driver training courses and motor carrier driver-finishing programs. Our goals are to advance truck driver training, proficiency, and professionalism and to put quality drivers on the roads. PTDI streamlined the certification process to help carriers and schools obtain national recognition that their programs meet these standards.
