Options to Manage CDL Cost
Financial Assistance at Phoenix Truck Driving School
At Phoenix Truck Driving School, we understand that not everyone can afford to pay for the cost of CDL training upfront. Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify, and many trucking companies will reimburse the cost of your training. Qualified veterans may use the GI Bill® to obtain the necessary qualifications and certifications for quality and stable employment opportunities in the transportation industry.
Phoenix Truck Driving School students who qualify for the Montgomery GI Bill® and the Post-9/11 GI Bill® can receive tuition assistance and a monthly subsistence payment while attending truck driving school. The Post-9/11 GI Bill® may be transferred to your spouse or children if you meet specific requirements. Qualified individuals can receive up to $25,000 annually in tuition assistance and may be eligible for 15 years after separation.

Upon command approval the service member, while still on active duty, will be able to attend training on orders. This allows the service member to focus on the training being provided and allows for a smoother reintegration process.
