Will My GI Bill Pay for Truck Driving School?

Q: I’m trying to go to truck driving school. The school says they will take the GI Bill, however, they need a contact phone number to GI Bill finance. What is the phone number? I do have form DD-214. Please respond. I also could use any other information that you would think I need. Thank you very much.

A: My first question is which GI Bill do you have? While the school may accept the GI Bill, the GI Bill you have might not pay for the course you want to take. The Post 9/11 GI Bill generally pays for degree-producing courses where the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) pays for both degree and non-degree courses. If you are trying to get your CDL, then you would most likely be better off with the MGIB. Also, not only will your MGIB pay for your course, it can reimburse you up to $2,000 for the cost of your CDL and endorsements.

As far as a number to finance, they can call the Main VA Office number at 1-888-442-4551. I’m assuming either your school does not have a VA Certifying Official or you did not contact that person; otherwise they should have known that number already.

Also, did you have your Certificate of Eligibility when you enrolled. That would have shown them which GI Bill you had and how many months of eligibility you have left. If you didn’t have it, then the school VA Certifying Official should have been able to certify you on the spot off of your DD-214. Something just doesn’t feel right about this whole process or the school isn’t used to working with veterans using the GI Bill.
