C.R. England and Premiere Announce New Atlanta Driving School
Atlanta, GA, November 16, 2016 (Newswire.com) - C.R. England and Premier Truck Driving Schools are proud to announce the opening of a brand-new driving school in Atlanta, Georgia. The location of the school will make it possible for students who live in the South to receive comprehensive CDL training closer to home.
C.R. England purchased the property at 1500 Cedar Grove Rd. in Conley, GA earlier this year. The property sits southeast of Atlanta and is easily accessible by numerous interstates including 75, 675, and 285. Premier Truck Driving Schools officially opened at the site on October 3 while the remainder of the 17.5-acre site continues to be prepared as an active C.R. England terminal.
The school itself consists of several classrooms, meeting rooms and a lounge area for drivers. There is ample space on the property for students to practice their driving skills under the supervision of Premier's instructors.
"Having this school in the South allows us to really open our network and support surrounding states where we have strategically aligned ourselves with our customers and high volume lanes, and it helps drivers find their career paths quickly and get into routes that work for them," the company said in a prepared statement. "The Atlanta facility will be a terminal for us as well, so it's another resource for drivers." New driver orientation and driver placement services will also be offered at the Atlanta Facility.
In addition to housing Premier Truck Driving Schools, the Atlanta property gives C.R. England better access to its southern markets. The property offers thousands of square feet of new office space, on-site parking for trailers, and even space for dispatching and freight selling operations. C.R. England has not announced the official opening for the rest of the property, but Premier Truck Driving Schools is already enrolling students.
