Established in 1971, National Tractor Trailer School has over 41 years experience training men and women for commercial truck driver careers. Accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges and with courses certified by the Professional Truck Driver Institute (PTDI), NTTS is approved by the NYS Division of Veterans Affairs for the training of veterans (GI Bill), and is an eligible institution for financial aid programs including Stafford Loans (student loans), Parental Loans for undergraduate students (P.L.U.S.), and Pell Grants.
NTTS offers CDL Truck Driver Training (CDL-A and CDL-B) programs, financial aid for those who qualify, full and part-time courses, graduate employment assistance, and modern housing available to students from out of town.
At NTTS, commercial truck driver training isn't just about getting a CDL license, but the career education to become a qualified and competent, entry level, commercial truck driver.
National Tractor Trailer's School's first students began training in June of 1971. Originally established in Newburgh, New York, NTTS opened a Syracuse campus in January of 1972. Syracuse, NY proved to be more conducive to its mode of operation and more centrally located in freight lane. Therefore, in December of 1972 the schools merged into one campus located in Syracuse, NY. In November of 1977, NTTS moved to its present location in Liverpool, New York, and purchased the facility in May of 1981. NTTS received its initial accreditation from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, in October of 1984, and subsequently became an eligible institution for Title IV funding in March of 1985. Since then, NTTS has been reaccredited four times.

In May of 1989, the school established a branch location in Blasdell, New York. In May of 1990, the Blasdell facility was moved to its current location and purchased by NTTS at 175 Katherine St, Buffalo, NY. In October 1990, the Buffalo location was accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges as a branch location. Program offerings in Buffalo are essentially the same as at the Liverpool facility. Receiving its Commercial Drivers Course certification in July of 1998 from the Professional Truck Driver Institute, NTTS became part of a unique group of Professional Driver Training Schools in the United States and Canada. Since its inception, NTTS has remained under the same name and ownership
