Paying for CDL Training

JTL is a military-friendly school. Our 160-hour Class A CDL course is approved for the GI Bill®. However, if students don’t qualify for assistance through that bill, JTL admissions staff may be able to connect you with other options that are available. We want nothing more than to help you reach your goals. Get in touch with our expert team to review each of your payment options.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/

The school will comply with Section 103 of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018 as follows:

Sec. 103. Disapproval for purposes of educational assistance programs of Department of Veterans Affairs of certain courses of education that do not permit individuals to attend or participate in courses pending payment: This provision would require that in order for a school or training program to be approved for GI Bill benefits they must adopt a policy that disallows the school or training program from imposing a late fee, denial of access to facilities, or other penalties against a veteran or eligible dependent due to late payment of tuition and/or fees from VA. This would only apply if the payments have not been received within 90 days of the beginning of the term and the Secretary would have the authority to waive this requirement.  Schools would be allowed to require students to provide documentation to ensure that they are entitled to GI Bill benefits.

The restriction on penalties would not apply in cases where the student owes an additional payment to the school beyond the amount of the tuition and fee payment from VA to the school. VA would have to make payments to schools no later than 60 days after receiving the tuition and fee certification from the school, and they would have to report semiannually to Congress any cases in which VA fails to make such payments within 60 days of certification.

Transitioning from the Military to Trucking

Many of the skills you learned during your time in the military are easily transferable to a trucking career. We’ve clearly seen that veterans like you make excellent and strong leaders in the classroom and out in the industry. Our admissions team has years of experience helping military men and women start their training at JTL.
