Apply for CDL Training

There are several programs available that can help cover the cost of CDL Training. Applicants interested in enrolling in truck driving school can receive one or more of the following:

  • Apply for Tuition Assistance Programs
    Truck driving schools will often offer training programs that can be paid for after you are employed. The school will deduct reasonable tuition payments from your paycheck until they have covered the cost of tuition.
  • Tuition Reimbursement
    Another way to cover the cost of truck driving school is tuition reimbursement. Trucking companies will pay back the money you spent on truck driving school tuition after driving for them for a contracted period of time. You are basically getting truck driver training for FREE, along with extremely valuable job experience.
  • Government/State Funded Grants and Loans
    Visit the truck driving school’s financial aid advisors and they will have information and resources for you to receive government funding for skills training programs. These programs include, but are not limited to the FMCSA, Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Trade Adjustment Assistance (TRAY/TAA), Welfare to Work (WtW) and Veterans Administration (VA).
  • Private Funded Grants, Loans and Scholarships
    Because these programs are always varying and don’t typically last long, we are unable to give specifics. However, a truck driver school’s financial aid department will have information on privately-funded financial aid programs.
