Welcome to the New Mexico Junior College Transportation Safety Training webpage. We are proud to serve your transportation safety needs. Our trainings are taught by highly skilled and trained instructors who pride themselves in professionalism.

Effective February 7, 2022, NMJC will be conducting a two-week CDL Training that meets the new Federal Regulations. The cost for the 2-week CDL Training is $3,000. We offer the training bilingually. However, federal law requires that the CDL skills test be done in English. We limit our class size to 3 students per instructor/truck to ensure that you get a great deal of time behind the wheel and on the driving range. For more information, please contact our office. 

We are a Third Party CDL Testing Site which conducts required CDL Skills testing for the State of New Mexico. New Mexico Junior College has testing sites in Hobbs, Portales, Raton, and Taos. To schedule a test once a driver has met the requirements of their Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP), please contact our office to set up the test.

We also offer Defensive Driving classes in both English and Spanish. The Defensive Driving class is licensed and approved by the New Mexico Traffic Safety Division and accepted by the courts for citations received. The Defensive Driving classes are offered on a monthly basis on Saturdays.

Need to attend a DWI School to get your license back or for court? We offer a 12 hour licensed and approved DWI School. The school is licensed and approved by New Mexico Traffic Safety Division. The class is offered in both English and Spanish.

We offer HAZMAT training that  meets the Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) requirements to add hazardous material endorsement for a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) license. After the student has passed the course, they will be issued a certificate of completion and it will be entered into the training registry as required by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
