Commercial truck driving can be a solid and rewarding career choice for those who enjoy working independently and having a secure job. Completing a CDL training program may be your best path to long-term career success. But, if you’re wondering whether or not trucking school is worth your time and money, consider these 4 factors:

Better Training = Better Pay

By attending an accredited trucking school, you can learn the necessary tools to become a quality truck driver. At Diesel Driving Academy, we provide three options for Class A CDL training. Students have the option of taking our Advanced CDL Driver Training course, a Basic CDL Driver Training program, or the CDL Prep course. Each one prepares students to enter the trucking industry with a wide range of trucking job opportunities.

Job Placement Assistance

Another bonus of attending a trucking school is job placement assistance. As a DDA student, you’ll benefit from our job placement services, such as trucking company recruitment events, on-site hiring events, and lifetime job placement assistance. Our full-time job placement staff helps graduates find a new job, change trucking companies, or get back into the field.

Tuition Assistance and Reimbursement

According to, truck driving school can cost $3,000 to $7,000 out of pocket. Diesel Driving Academy’s financial aid team will help you determine if you qualify for financial aid or a tuition reimbursement program to help reduce or even fully cover those costs. For our active duty and military veterans, there are a number of tuition assistance programs available. Many veterans use the Post 9/11 GI Bill® or Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA).

When deciding on a driving school, consider the quality of the instructors, past job placements, the cost of training, and the type of training offered.
