Benefits of Using a CDL School

A great perk about use a CDL program is that they have ties to many of California’s largest trucking companies. CDL schools typically have strong connections to at least a handful of reputable trucking companies, however you don’t need to select one of these companies. In today’s industry, most truckers get to pick the right one for your specific interests. This is a big advantage compared to company sponsored CDL training, as you are not obligated to work long-term for one company after you complete CDL training.

Many truckers start of doing long-hauls. This allows them to put in plenty of upfront hours and make a good wage. The downside is that you may be on the road and away from home for an extended period of time. Eventually, many truckers have the option to do shorter routes, which allow them to sleep in their own beds every night.

Hands on training

Along with classroom experience, you’ll get a great deal of hands on training. Instructors often have years of both industry experience and teaching experience, which provide you with an optimal environment for being prepared for real-life experiences.

You’ll also be able to choose a program that fits your schedule. Whether you’re looking to get your CDL license over an extended period of time or as quickly as possible, you’ll be able to find a school that meets the needs of your schedule.

Tuition Assistance

Most CDL programs in California offer some form of tuition assistance. This typically comes in the form of a loan or tuition reimbursement, where you pay your tuition over time once you have a truck driving job. You can also ask if they can provide help with applying for grants and scholarships that are available to California residents.

You can also search for these grants and scholarships on your own. The California Student Aid Commission has an updated list of available grants and scholarships on their website that can be used for CDL programs.
