What is the Post 9/11 GI Bill?
The Post 9/11 GI Bill is a financial support program for individuals who have served at least 90 days of service after September 10, 2001 or have received an honorable discharge with a service-connected disability after serving for 30 days.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill will fund the costs of both truck driving school CDL training and the fees required to obtain your commercial driver license (CDL).
The payment amounts for truck driving school can vary depending on the the GI Bill program you use and the school you attend. Payments are issued monthly once training has been completed and is based on the number of hours you attend training during each week of the month.
The payment amounts for acquiring your commercial driver license (CDL) are:
- Court Reporters Licensing Exam: $130
- Commercial Driver License (CDL) Knowledge Test: $10
- CDL Examination: $50
