About Us

Since 1973, TDDS Technical Institute has been the leading diesel mechanic training school and truck driving school in Ohio. Located in Lake Milton, near Akron, Ohio, TDDS has a wonderful year-round environment for diesel mechanic and truck driver training.


Truck Driver Training


If you're looking for a truck driving school, TDDS offers a variety of programs to fit your needs and level of experience. For starters, we have a CDL training course designed for drivers with no previous commercial driving experience.


At our truck driving school, we also offer programs designed for individuals and companies that want to upgrade their skills. Whether you need a Class A and B refresher course or need hazardous materials training, TDDS is here to guide you. And those are just a few of the truck driving training programs we have to offer!

Diesel Technician Training


If you're looking for a top-notch diesel mechanic training school in Ohio, then TDDS is the perfect place to start. We offer a bumper-to-bumper education that allows our students to work on and repair live equipment – not simulators – so they can get a real feel during training. And since every detail matters, we keep our class sizes small to maximize your opportunity to excel.


In addition to our great programs, consider the other perks of attending TDDS:

  • Affordable student housing
  • We offer Title IV funding (which most trucking schools don't)
  • An accredited education
  • Job placement opportunities
