Many people don't realize it’s possible to use credit cards or personal loans, in addition to payments made by cash or check. We accept any combination of these payment methods that’s comfortable for you.
Your employer may offer a tuition reimbursement program where you will be compensated for school costs based on certain criteria. Typically, this means you cover costs up-front and the company pays you back later. Rules are different for different companies though, so ask the HR Department or your Supervisor for details.
National and regional transportation companies needing more solo and team drivers often sponsor training for current or future employees. Ask about this at work if it makes sense for you, or ask us if we can connect you with an employer who could help pay for training.
Grants & Aid
A variety of government agencies and non-profit organizations offer financial aid for CDL training. Eligibility is determined on an individual basis, and American Job Centers offers resources to help access programs such as:
- The Workforce Investment Act (WIA): Funding available for employment and training assistance
- Occupational Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR): Funding for those who have been injured or suffer other physical or learning disabilities
- The Trade Adjustment Act (TAA): Funding for those whose jobs have been moved overseas
The GI Bill
The Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Montgomery GI Bill both provide members of the military with federal funding for CDL training programs, if certain qualifications are met. These aren’t loans, so you won’t need to pay anything back and up to 36 months of financial assistance is provided. Check to see if you and your preferred location qualify.
Some CDL.com partner school locations offer payment plans for students. An Education Consultant can tell you if your school location has this kind of a program, as well as help you figure out if you qualify.
