If you’re thinking of switching careers, you might consider earning your CDL and becoming a professional truck driver. You’ll find that truck driving school can be exciting and rewarding. However, you may have a difficult time paying for trucking school while supporting your family. Fortunately, there are several ways you can pay for your truck driving education.

Student Loans

If you can’t collect enough tuition money from your family members or personal savings, you might consider student loans. If you’re willing to visit various financial institutions, you may find a student loan that’s worth pursuing. Student loans are advantageous for aspiring truck drivers because they typically have low interest rates. Once you land a good job in the trucking industry, you should be able to repay your trucking school dues in a hurry.

Financial Aid

Another way to obtain funding for trucking school is to explore your financial aid options. If you contact the trucking school admissions representatives in a timely manner, you can have a much easier time coming up with the necessary funds. For instance, HDS Truck Driving Institute can match qualified individuals with Arizona trucking companies. If you get pre-hired with one of these companies, you can have up to 100% of your tuition costs covered.

GI Bill

HDS Truck Driving School is honored to serve those who have bravely served our country. If you have recently been on active duty in the U.S. military, you can fund your Arizona CDL classes with GI Bill Educational Benefits. Our Arizona driving school also offers reduced tuition for those in the U.S. Army Reserve or National Guard. If you are the dependent or spouse of a deceased veteran or active duty soldier, you won’t have to pay as much for CDL classes.

Paying for your truck driving education can be simple if you’re willing to go through the proper channels.
