Welcome To Fontana


I am Terry Jaco. I am the Director of Premier Truck Driving School in Fontana, CA. I would like to thank you for choosing C R England to start your career as a Commercial Truck Driver. I think you will find that Premier Truck Driving School is not just a name, but our description as well. We are California’s “premier” truck driving school.

I have lived in Southern California all of my life, and have been in the trucking business for over 30 years, with 21 years in the “truck school” business. After working for several truck schools I realized that most schools really didn’t know what trucking companies were actually looking for in new drivers. It’s true, they knew that they needed drivers with a CDL, but beyond that, they did not have much of a clue of what to teach you. So, they taught you how to get a license. Period.

In 1998 I met Wayne Cederholm, who offered me the opportunity to help create and develop what is now Premier Truck Driving School. What you will find at Premier is that we care about much more than just getting you a license. Our mission is to help you obtain your goals through our training, and employment with C.R. England. 

It is my goal to provide you with a training environment that is not only relaxed and enjoyable, but offer the best in education for your new career.

I look forward to seeing you at Premier Truck Driving School soon,

Terry Jaco
