Buford >Dalys' Truck Driving School
“am now working for Werner and making good money and in this economy that is a big releif.”
Dalys helped me when I decided to change my career to truck driving. I feel like they did everything that they could do to help me with getting my license. The instructors know what they are doing and have experience. Its not a "i teach because i cannot do" environment. I would send any of my loved ones that were looking to get there license to this school. Thank you Dalys for all your help!
I went through Daly's two months ago. They were very helpful and encouraging during my time there. They helped me with my job placement afterwards and i really felt like i was prepared to go to work driving right after i graduated. I was so nervous before i tested and the instructors that were there helped me to get some confidence so that i wouldnt be.
I just graduated from the weekend course. Hard hard hard, but learned a lot!!! Instructors were patient especially for me since I have never been blue collar worker.
When a former student told me that someone had written negative comments about this school I figured I should write about my experience since Daly's helped me immensely. I lost my job back in 2010 and have searched for work and have only found temp job or jobs that pay next to nothing. I used the federal grant program (who highly recommend Daly's because of their high job placement percentage rate) to pay for the school. Everyone I ran into students included were so helpful. The companies that hire students come to the school so you can get an idea of what each company is about. There is one on one time with an intructor at no extra charge! Thank you Daly's, wonderful experience.
I am not sure what the non-student below is complaining about, but I had no issues with my training or testing process through Daly's. She states they financed, but then she states they were forgotten about once they paid the money so which was it? I didn't have the entire money to pay the school plus I have bad credit they financed me at 6% interest rate and my monthly payments were due two months after I started school. So she is correct in that sense if you aren't finished (school is just 17-days) with school in two months then your payments are due. I went to school three weeks, tested the following week failed the yard portion, I requested extra practice I came for an hour of one on one practice then went down a week later and passed. The instructors are more than helpful giving tips and spending extra time if you are not getting something. I guess you can't make everyone happy including non-students
BEWARE of Daly's is an understatement
and I think the rest of these reviews are lies..lies and more lies My husband has taken and passed the course at the school and was sent to DDS weeks after finishing without being in like a reviewer said a old and worn out truck without NO practice in those weeks prior to being summoned with a 1 day notice from the puppet of a secretary who claims she don't know what's going on half the time. Many weeks have passed by with only being allowed to practice twice within 4 weeks. He was finally sent to DDS again after 1 hours of practice, and again was unable to pass a maneuver due to lack of training. We have called several times and keep getting the run around from the puppet and claiming that the owner must give permission to be able to send back to DDS, mind you with no training, how can a person pass ? Yes they do forget you once they get your money. They do send out people while your in the yard practicing, just to see if they can snatch up slaves to drive for and pay you nothing. If something is not done soon, I'm calling the better business Bureau ASAP and report what I have witnessed with my own eyes. How many people have passed within the last 6 months and actually have their CDL's on hand with a Job?? Now that is the question.
Oh I forgot, You start paying your balance from the finance company before you finish the course.....BBB I'm calling
Beware of Daly's !!! They say that they don't give up on you but that's not really true. That's strictly on their terms. Find another truck driving school. This is a crash course. Some of the instructors just shout at you instead of trying to teach you. You get very little practice time in the truck. You are sharing practice time with 3 other students besides yourself. The practice trucks are really beat up and are difficult to shift because they have been so abused.
Excellent School, the Daly's know their
stuff and how to run a school. I passed first shot and now off to work.
Excellent school, just passed my license test last week. The owner actually is there with you at the test site, he is real helpful. Gave a lot of pointers
Be very careful about going to this school!. This school is all about moving as many people through its doors as possible. First thing you are only learning what is on the cdl test. This is a crash course in truck driving! I have found in my experience and having conversations with other students. That Daly’s pretty much is done with you after they get their money. If you’re going to take cdl courses look at the community colleges. Most trucking companies don’t care for 3 week schools. Lastly Daly’s claims to help find you a job. This is not true! They allow recruiters to visit during your lunch break. You do all the leg work to find a job. Most of these recruiters are vultures preying on desperate people! Please do your research!
