Financial Assistance Options for Military Veterans

Use Your Military Benefits for CDL Training

DriveCo can help certify service members and veterans for the GI Bill® benefits to cover the costs associated with getting an education or training in the career of their choice. As an Active Duty or Military Veteran, you may be eligible for educational benefits through the numerous GI Bill® programs available. DriveCo is approved for participation in various funding programs offered through the Veterans Administration for active service members, reservists, veterans, dependents, and spouses, each of which is administered differently depending on a person’s eligibility and duty status. These grants are designed to help recruit, train, and place veterans and their spouses in high-demand jobs in an industry that is vitally important to keep our national economy moving forward.

DriveCo is proud to participate in the following Veteran Assistance Programs:

With DriveCo, students will have in-classroom instruction, as well as the opportunity to drive at our Gary, Indiana 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.


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