Are you interested in getting your CDL? If so, you’re probably trying to figure out how to pay for truck driving school. You may want to consider sponsored CDL training. With it, you don’t have to pay for CDL school and you have a job waiting for you when you earn your CDL.
What is a Sponsored CDL Training?
Sponsored CDL training means a trucking company pays for you to go to CDL school. In return, you usually have to sign a contract saying you will work for the trucking company when you get your CDL. Your contract may state you’re expected to work for the company for a minimum length of time like one or two years. Sponsored CDL training is a great option because you don’t have to go into debt or spend your savings to attend CDL school.
