VINITA, OK – Heavy Metal Training Institute (HMTI), the only truck driving school in Northeast Oklahoma, today announced that the school is relocating its main campus to Big Cabin, Oklahoma. HMTI signed a lease for the Franks & Sons Trucking building and surrounding land located at 31303 South Highway 69. The new campus will include a significantly larger training facility with increased resources allowing HMTI to better serve its students.
The 11-acre campus will be custom designed for teaching students to earn their CDL. It is large enough to safely train students to operate 18-wheel trucks before they drive on the road in real-world conditions. Other features of the new campus will include:
- Custom designed driving range
- More classroom and student services space
- Administrative offices
- Student housing
- Maintenance shop, warehouse, and garage
“The new campus will support our growing fleet of trucks and plans to add more courses,” said Bobbie Wolf, owner of HMTI. “And I’m really excited about the new driving range.”
HMTI is currently offering several courses for commercial drivers, including Commercial Driver’s license, Commercial Learner’s Permit, Commercial Endorsements, and School Bus Permits. Participants must be 18 or older, have a valid driver’s license, pass a DOT drug test/physical, and have a good driving record. Tuition assistance and scholarship programs are available.
The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) program is a four-week course. Students earn their CLP and undergo training to earn their Oklahoma CDL. This course includes a pre-trip inspection, defensive driving, coupling, backing maneuvers, basic road skills, and more. The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety administers the CDL test on-site for students at the end of the course.
HMTI is a learning institution licensed by the Oklahoma Board of Private Vocational Schools (OBPVS). It offers fast track courses at an affordable price, practical hands-on training, and industry experienced instructors. The headquarters is located at 31303 South Highway 69 in Big Cabin, Oklahoma.
