Contact local trucking schools

As trucking schools have grown all over the country, many trucking companies have built working relationships with local schools. Depending on which school you decide to attend, they may have existing relationships with carriers in your area. When you apply for school, you may be able to get in touch with these employers and sign an employment contract in exchange for having your tuition paid for. Other companies may require you to pay tuition upfront and then get reimbursed when you start driving for their company.

Look into nearby carriers

Even carriers that don’t work directly with schools often have a significant need for skilled, dedicated drivers. You may want to look through trucking jobs on our site or explore carriers that you see around town.

By selecting your state from the dropdown below and contacting a company’s human resources or recruiting department, you can find out whether or not they have a tuition reimbursement option for new truck driving students. Keep in mind that you may want to contact trucking companies before you start training, since some only hire drivers in certain license classes or with specific endorsements.

Become part of the trucking community

Another great way to learn about tuition reimbursement opportunities, whether you’ve already started your education or if you’re still looking into your options: join a local truck driving association. These groups are often filled with experienced truck drivers, owner-operators, and company owners, all of whom know their way around the industry.

By talking to those who are already established and who may be involved in the hiring process at their company, you may be able to learn about tuition reimbursement opportunities that aren’t as widely advertised.

Know what’s involved with tuition reimbursement for CDL school

Before you get reimbursed for your tuition, you’ll typically have to sign a contract that requires you to work for a specific company for a set amount of time. Typically, this starts at one year of employment. If you terminate employment (or if your employment is terminated) before you complete your contract, you may be expected to pay back the remaining tuition expenses that have not been paid off by your employment. Knowing what you’re agreeing to before you sign a contract can help you plan for your future and avoid expenses down the road.

Tuition reimbursement can be an excellent resource for you if you want to save money on your trucking education. Get started by reaching out to trucking schools near you today.
