Government Assistance for CDL Training

DriveCo CDL Learning Center works with several different government programs to help qualified Indiana residents with significant barriers to cover the costs of CDL training. This gives anyone access to the in-demand, high-quality jobs they may not have the ability to obtain through their own means. Employers are looking to hire and retain skilled workers, and this is an avenue to fill their needs.

All of our professional truck driving school training programs are approved for funding by the following State and Federal Agencies:

Indiana Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

The Indiana Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program provides access to job training and work services to job seekers with significant barriers to employment – including veterans, and those with disabilities. This program delivers a job-driven approach to career training and job skills development for individuals to obtain employment in high-demand career fields, such as the trucking industry. To determine eligibility, contact our school office to apply for this program.

Indiana Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)

The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program provides benefits and support to displaced workers who have lost their jobs, have had their hours cut, or have had wages reduced as a result of production moving outside of the United States. Eligible participants receive tuition assistance to obtain new jobs and earn wages comparable to their prior employment. To determine eligibility or apply for this program, contact our school office.

National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP)

With DriveCo, students will have in-classroom instruction, as well as the opportunity to drive at our Gary, IN location. There is no need to travel to another location for training when it can all be done at the same place!


DriveCo has several training trucks students will drive in during their training. Students will spend time driving with their instructors in our driving yard, located at our school, as well as on highways and interstates within Gary, IN.


When students go take their CDL Test, they will only have to travel a few miles away from our Gary, IN location. Students will also be able to drive in the same trucks they have used throughout their training during the CDL Testing!
