Free Truck Driving Schools &
Company-Sponsored CDL Training

There are free truck driving schools and company-sponsored CDL training programs that are available for little or no money up front. With a mediocre economy and good paying jobs hard to come by there are a lot of people that are thinking about getting started in the trucking industry but don't have the money to pay for schooling. Well, you've come to the right place.

What Is Company-Sponsored CDL Training?

Company-sponsored CDL training programs are truck driving schools which are owned and operated by a trucking company, or truck driving schools whose up front costs are covered by a trucking company.

A trucking company will either train new drivers at their own facility or pay for their training through a private school. In return for this training the driver will sign a contract agreeing to work for the company for a period of time. This period is usually around one year.

Every contract is different so do your research. Some companies will require you to pay back some tuition, others will offer the schooling for free after you've been with the company for a specified amount of time.
