Donald Rouselle from Driver Solutions Facebook page asks: How much does CDL training cost? And how much up front?


If I remember correctly the loan for trucking school was around $4,000. I'm sure Driver Solutions can correct this if I'm wrong. They worked out a payment plan, where I pay weekly payments for one year until the loan is paid off. It's not all that much every week, so it was really doable. I didn't have to pay anything up front. This was the beauty of this program!

Take care and be safe,
