When compared to other types of education, truck driver training has one of the highest rates of return. For a very affordable investment, new truck drivers can begin earning up to $41,000. In some areas of the US this is even higher.

People who opt for a traditional university degree can easily rack up thousands of dollars in debt in student loans. In addition, the traditional college career path takes at least four years to graduate.

Even after spending four years completing a Bachelor’s degree, most entry-level positions for recent college graduates only pay $30,000 – 40,000!

In just a few short weeks, you can be in a new career earning a real salary for less than you think. Most truck drivers are able to pay off their truck driving school costs in less than one year. On top of that, many motor carriers will help their employees pay off their loans through a tuition reimbursement program.

While each program is unique, the schools offer different ways to make the program work for every student. All of our schools have tuition assistance, WIA, Carrier Tuition Reimbursement and VA benefits. Some even have Pell Grants and Guaranteed Student Loan programs.

Regardless of truck driving school costs, every school in our network is devoted to helping you get the greatest return on your educational investment. Fill out our quick form for more information.
