Interested in getting your Commercial Drivers License (CDL) but not sure how to finance your CDL training? Good news–many CDL schools offer ways to help you pay for your CDL training! Find out how you can reach your goals with the financial assistance offered at United Truck Driving School.
Government Financial Aid
Many people don’t realize that truck driving school can be financed with government funding. United Truck Driving School is accredited by both The Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the California Bureau of Post-Secondary Education. These accreditations mean that United Truck Driving School is able to offer a number of options for government-funded tuition assistance. Programs such as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and other such government programs can cover all or part of the tuition at United Truck Driving School for eligible students.
United Truck Driving School is proud to participate in VA Educational programs serving veterans, active-duty military, and military spouses and dependents. Many active-duty and ex-military veterans excel in trucking because many of the skills taught in the military align with that of truck driving. United participates in the Post 9/11 GI Bill®, VA Vocational Rehabilitation, and Transferred GI Bill Benefits. Military spouses also have the opportunity to use the Military Spouse Career Advancement Account (MyCCA) to pay for CDL training.
United Truck Driving School works with trucking companies that offer tuition reimbursement. This means you pay for your CDL training, and the trucking company that hired you reimburses you for the training in the form of monthly payments over time. With this option, you will have to sign a contract promising to stay with the company for a certain amount of time.
Personal Financing & Payment Plans
Even if you don’t qualify for financial assistance, you can still get help paying for your CDL training. United works with students to create personalized payment plans. Many times students don’t have to begin paying until after graduation.
If you have been displaced from your career due to disability, truck-driving may be an option for you. Supplemental Job Displacement Benefits can be received if you were injured, have a disability, and your employer does not offer work you can perform. United Truck Driving School accepts these vouchers to cover your tuition and fees, books, and other expenses for your CDL training.
