Program Details

Like many local residents, Richard Garmon was affected by the closure of Illinois Tool Works in Mazon. He came to our office interested in training to become a driver and earn his CDL.

Richard attended classes at 160 Driving Academy and in very little time had completed the required hours and passed his exam. He is employed once again using his new skills.

In his own words “I would recommend that driving class to anyone who is interested in driving and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the grant. Thank-you.” We are happy to be a part of your journey Rick.
