hello everyone I am a student right now at Toro and honestly I don't see what many people complain about. Yes the trucks are old and they do not look so appealing but they get the job done. The way I see it is if you can master those trucks you can drive anything. if you ask for help then you will get the help. on top of that the price for everything that you get is really good especially with the unlimited classes you get. I had my doubts when I read the reviews but I took a theory class and the teacher who gave the class took that doubt away I know I made a right choice by choosing Toro and I cant wait to graduate and make some money !!!!
my opinion about Toro is that its a good school you go for what you go for which is to get your license. Many people complain about how old the trucks are and how they look ugly but as ugly as the trucks are people are still graduating and being succesful like myself. the staff was very proffesional and very friendly. the instructors are very strict on how you do the skills so you dont cheat yourself they make sure you are ready for the DMV and they test you much harder than the DMV so that they feel confident that you will pass when you go to take your test. really do not have much complians about Toro
As was stated before from some other students, the equipment it is pretty old, doesnt get proper maintenance, the school doesnt respect your schedule, one of the trainers gives priority to students of his own ethnicithy, if you bring that to his attention he says that he got the last word that if you got complaints call the main office, but.... nothing gets done, the money that we pay is green right? so should be the same equal instruction and time of practice for every student, its better to consider better options before go there.
Im a recent grad from TORO and let me inform you before you invest your hard earned money. 1.Their training trucks are in EXTREMELY poor condition lacking vital parts such as emergency brakes for example. DOT would not let those truck operate in the condition they are in 2. Instructors are EXTREMELY unintrested in your training and rarely monitor your progress. I got my tests signed off as passing when I never even took took them. 3. The so called placement list they provide is mostly companies that have nothing to do with TORO and dont even know who they are with a few asking to be removed from their list. 4. Jessie (owner) is convienently unavalible whenever you need assistence with placement and never returns calls....Unless you still owe a balance then they are more than happy to return your calls. They are unprofessional and not worth you money.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Toro Truck Driving School for all their help and support in obtaining my Class A license with P endorsement.
I found this school on the internet while searching for a school to get a Class B license. I submitted my information to six different schools and only Toro replied informing me what they could do for me.
Carlos responded to me and after a brief telephone conversation, I had all the information I needed to get started. A short time later I was contacted by Jesse who is the owner of the company. I confirmed with him what I wanted to accomplish and it seemed more logical for me to obtain a Class A license instead of the Class B.
Jessee and I verbally agreed what it would cost for a Class A license with P endorsement. He guaranteed me that I could get the Class A and endorsement in a week, as long as I dedicated myself to the training methods. All other schools were stating not only would it cost more to obtain this but it would take weeks longer.
I began my training on Monday 062512 and obtained my Class A on the following Wednesday. In the same afternoon, I was already studying and driving for my P endorsement. Friday afternoon 062912, I had the endorsement.
Yes hard work does prevail. Its my understanding that in 39 years, I am the only student who has accomplished not only getting the Class A within a week but an endorsement as well. I will tell you that I could not have accomplished this with out the help of Jessee, Carlos, Francisco and Jorge.
Yes, the trucks are older, yes there are other obligations that instructors have such as other students but you as one person should not depend on just one person or persons to help you accomplish what you want.
There were many other students trying to accomplish what I had. I did not get any one on one training and I didn't expect to. I had little experience and not as much time as others. Utilizing the methods given by the instructors, I was able to excel and accomplish my goals.
While in the school, I noticed a lot of camaraderie and everyone seemed to like seeing others succeed. I will also add that my contacts with DMV personnel was a positive experience as well.
I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to put forth hard work, dedication and the time and ability to accomplish there goals.
Believe in your dreams....
I will close by saying thanks to my new Mexian friend..... lol
Toro school and success – Schools are like anything else in life. You get out of it what you put into it. For me selecting Toro truck driving school for my class A training was the best decision I could have made. From its wonderful office staff and their flexable class scheduling, to the patient instructors in the field. They are all great.
Thanks to Toro`s training program I have taken the DMV written exam and the DMV final driving exam and passed both on the first try. Because of Toro truck driving school I now have my class A CDL, and the skills and self confidence to get that trucking job and financial security that goes with it.

It worked for me... and fast too. – I started Toro and not even two months later, I have my class A license. I will admit that the trucks are peices of work... The tires are bald and the gears suck and they are far from new but they get the job done! If you can make it thru Toro, you deserve to be a trucker.
