YRC is also kind of unique in that they require students to have their tanker endorsement specifically, as well as the TSA approval letter that will allow them to get the Hazmat endorsement.
Students also won't need to be too worried about an "items to take" list, as they will be responsible for having a place to stay and for their meals.
There is no cost for the school.
The student needs to pay for their CDL permit, TSA check, DOT physical, and Hazmat and tanker endorsements.
No, students must provide for their own meals.
No, students will be commuting to school, so they will need to live in the Chicago Metro area.
No, there is no option to pay up front.
Drivers agree to work for YRC for 1 year. If the driver leaves YRC before the year is up, he or she will be responsible for the entire CDL school tuition.
As YRC does not have any payment options besides the 1 year obligation, the only costs are the permit, TSA and endorsement fees. Leaving before the 1 year mark will leave the student on the hook for the entire CDL Training Academy tuition.
This is keeping in mind that no meals or lodging are provide, and the driver must provide their own transportation back and forth to school daily.
