How Much Does Truck Driving School Cost?

Affordable Tuition + Financial Assistance = Job Placement

It’s very simple, just do the arithmetic … if you compare all the different career training options available, becoming a professional truck driver has the best financial return on your investment, by far. With a short training period, affordable tuition — and in many instances employers assisting in your training cost if you qualify — professional truck driving is clearly a smart career choice for folks who want a good, steady income. There is no unemployment in the trucking industry right now.  Demand for professional, qualified drivers is at an all time high.

So, by now you are asking how much does truck driving school cost? The answer is — it depends in part on which choices you make.

Your upfront out-of-pocket cost will be approximately $200 – $300, depending on whether you require lodging.  Most truck lines we work with will help with the balance through their Tuition Assistance Programs. Even with the low cost of tuition, there are still several options available for covering the costs of CDL Training. Some of these options include:

Career Education Funding

There are several financial assistance options available to help with the cost of CDL Training with very little upfront out of pocket expenses. Truck Driver Institute’s Student Services Department is available to assist in coordinating and implementing the best funding option for you.

Employer Tuition Assistance

Like nurses, truck drivers are in great demand, and many employers are willing to do what it takes to attract qualified candidates. Along with a strong pay and benefit plan many trucking companies are even willing to invest in your education through Tuition Assistance Programs once hired. All this over and above a very attractive pay package and with no employment contracts required.
