I HAVE BEEN UNEMPLOYED FOR ALMOST A YEAR NOW . I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED MY CDL LICENSE BUT NOW I CAN'T AFFORD THEM. IT WILL COST ONLY 2000.00 DOLLARS. A LITTLE START LIKE THIS IS ALL I WOULD NEED.IF SOMEONE COULD HELP ME LET ME KNOW.

heck out sites of larger companies (like Swift, Scheider, etc...) that offer paid training. It's not much but you can get your CDL and make some money doing it...Good luck.

If you have a local truck school in mind and out of work for some time, it actually may work for you. No work, no money, government wants you working so there's a lot of grants for a motivated admin office. I just finished at NTTS Buffalo. School was 4500 for 4 weeks and even driving 100 miles roundtrip daily and 10% down borrowed from family, it cost less than 1000 or so. 90% paid for by a DOT grant, and the school had a partial fund and I'm not obligated to work for anyone at this time. The other school I tried that NYSDOL suggested only 8 miles from home didn;t return my phone call, and isn't accredited by the state. So I finished with the right school and they help also with some pre hires/companies sponsoring the school I imagine? Good luck! It's a challenge driving a big truck even with 10 years of med duty truck/trailer experience but, it appears to be opening doors to a new future. Just passed NYS CDL A yesterday, and added 3 endorsements so just put your school time into knowing what they teach and most can do it.
