We love it when our graduates stop by to visit! It give students who are currently in training a chance to learn more about what to expect as a new driver from someone who went through the same training they are going through. Terry Dreher graduated from DDA Little Rock and is now a Driver Trainer for Maverick Transportation! He stopped by with his Maverick truck to visit with students and his instructors.
