Certainly, many prospective truck drivers are curious about how they can obtain their Commercial Driver’s License without bearing the full costs. Here are several ways students might be able to get their CDL.

Tuition Reimbursement

Some companies might not pay for your training upfront but will reimburse your tuition costs after you’ve been employed with them for a certain period.

Company-Sponsored Training

Some trucking companies offer paid training programs. In return, graduates typically commit to working for the company for a specified period. This is one of the most common ways new drivers obtain their CDL without upfront costs.

Payment Plans Exclusive to Our School

While this option might not make the training “free” upfront, our school understands the financial constraints some students might face.

Therefore, we offer tailored payment plans where students can provide a manageable down payment to begin their training.

With a weekly payment of $650, students can steadily work their way through the course fees. It’s imperative to note that the complete tuition must be settled before course completion. This structured plan ensures you can focus on mastering the skills, confident in the knowledge that you’re investing in your future in manageable increments.


There are federal and state grants available that can cover the cost of CDL training. For instance, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides financial assistance for job training, including CDL training.


Some trucking associations, nonprofits, and training schools offer scholarships for CDL training based on merit or need.

Military Programs

Veterans and active-duty military personnel might qualify for free CDL training through programs like the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Community College Programs

Some community colleges offer affordable CDL training programs. With financial aid, the costs can be significantly reduced or even covered entirely.


Some companies or organizations offer apprenticeship programs where you can earn while you learn. This combines on-the-job training with classroom instruction, often covering the costs of obtaining a CDL.

State-Funded Training Programs

Some states have training programs aimed at high-demand jobs, including truck driving. Check with your state’s Department of Labor or equivalent agency for opportunities.

Trade School Partnerships

Some vocational and trade schools have partnerships with trucking companies where the company agrees to cover tuition in exchange for a work commitment.

Workforce Development Programs

Local workforce development boards sometimes have funds or programs specifically designed to help residents train for in-demand careers, like trucking.

Tribal Funding

Members of recognized tribes might be eligible for educational funding, including CDL training, through their tribal administration.


While not a traditional method, some students have successfully funded their CDL training through platforms like GoFundMe, explaining their passion and reasons for wanting to pursue truck driving.


In some areas, local businesses or community groups might sponsor individuals to receive their CDL, especially if there’s a local need for drivers.

Prospective students should thoroughly research each option, as some might come with stipulations, such as a commitment to work for a certain company for a specified period.

It’s essential to find a path that aligns with one’s career goals and personal circumstances
