Which GI Bill Pays for Truck Driving Schools?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: Is there any GI Bill program that will pay for truck driving schools which usually run one to three weeks and cost $1,500 – $6,000? I am eligible for the Montgomery Bill and Post-9/11 Bill and I am in southeast Michigan.

A: Your best bet would be the Montgomery GI Bill. It is the normally the best choice for trade, technical, license or certification training and it will reimburse you up to $2,000 for your CDL test and endorsements. The Post 9/11 GI Bill would most likely not pay for your training and it would reimburse your for only one test.

Right now the Montgomery GI Bill pays $1,421 per month to go to school and you have to pay all your own education-related expenses. For a course of less than one month, the amount would be prorated down to the number of days paid at around $47.37 per day for the duration of the course. The big thing will be to ensure your choose a school that is VA-approved before enrolling. See your school’s VA Certifying Official and that person can help you with the paperwork. Here is a list of truck driving schools in your area.
