When I was a kid my mom had a job for a while running the financial aid office of a trucking school in Portland, Oregon.

I have no idea how hard it is to drive them (the only thing bigger than a car I've ever driven is a 27-foot RV for about 5 miles in stop-and-go traffic), but if I recall correctly the course they did was six weeks in Portland and then they had to go to some place near Phoenix for a week for more significant road work.
