March 11, 2013 Uncategorized
If you’re a veteran thinking about pursuing a career in truck driving, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve spent a good deal of time putting together a comprehensive resource discussing the finer details of truck driving for veterans, specifically truck driving schools that have been approved by Veteran’s Affairs.
Finding VA Approved Truck Driving Schools
Locating truck driving schools in your area that have been approved by Veteran’s Affairs might seem like a daunting task at first but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, you can easily locate them by searching the schools on our website. All our listed schools qualify you for free CDL training through the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill is an update to the original GI Bill that provides funding to anyone who has served in the military. This funding can be used to attend college or vocational school or to obtain training for a specific career like truck driving. The idea behind this is it makes it easier for veterans to be integrated back into society after they are done serving their country.
What Will I Learn at a VA Approved Truck Driving School?
You’ll learn everything you need to know to pass your CDL or commercial driver’s license exam. This can include the rules and regulations of the road, the parts of the truck, how to drive a truck, and how to perform basic maintenance operations on a truck. Basically, once you’ve completed a truck driving school course, you’ll know everything you need to know to pass your CDL exam with flying colors, get hired by a trucking company, and hit the road.
