Our Story

35+ Years
Of Experience
Behind The Wheels  


My name is Michelle Deadwiler, I am the co-owner alongside my husband Arie Deadwiler. Together, we have over 35+ years of experience in the industry. Together, we run 3 Rivers Trucking School and we are a family-owned company who provides SECOND CHANCES for those seeking a CDL. Our family knows all to well the impact of having a loved one in the prison system. We've experienced those feelings of helplessness and sleepless nights. Which is why we started 3 Rivers Trucking School, to help other families who found themselves in our predicament. We want you to know that you are not alone and there is hope at the end of the tunnel. Let us help you!


Now, I know you know of the long countless hours and sacrifices it takes to get your CDL. If you have experienced anything like me and my husband, I'm sure you have plenty of stories to tell.

We have spoken with many drivers/future drivers and both groups have the same concerns.

  1. They don't like being away from their family for so long to obtain a CDL.

  2. They don't want to be tied into a contract with low pay & high tuition.

  3. They don't have 5000$ or more available to pay out of pocket.

All of these concerns we took into consideration and came up with a plan to eliminate these problems. After all, we do love this career and would like for other drivers to experience that same love for this industry. In all of our late nights and long miles on the road, we came up with


We created the blueprint to take a 4-6 week course and turn it into a 17-21 day course with a high focus on repetition and attendance. We offer this course once a month. Not only did we eliminate the issue of having to be away from family for long periods of time we also offer our class at a HUGE PRICEBREAK. We can guarantee you wont find a price like ours anywhere in this industry. We are state qualified and certified. Every course completion comes with a completion award of hours ,which we know companies smile upon.

We have two options for training to fit your schedule.

  • Weekday classes- Mon-Fri from 8:00am-5:00pm 


  • Weekend classes- Sat-Sun from 9:00am-3:00pm (10/11 weeks)​​
