VA Benefits for Truck Driving Training or Heavy Equipment

Use Your VA Benefits to Train for Truck Driving or Heavy Equipment Operation

If you would like to use your GI Bill VA benefits to become a truck driver or heavy equipment operator, we have just what you’re looking for. We are approved for Veterans training by the state approving agency of Florida. We are the only truck driving school in the country with a 350-acre facility, including a private, 1 ¼-mile highway, designed specifically to teach our students how to safely drive semi tractor-trailers.

 

Important Notes about Using Your VA Benefits

Some points are worth mentioning, if you’re interested in our programs. Each service member on active duty should check in with his or her Education Office to discuss options for using their VA benefits for these programs. If you are preparing to discharge from the military, you might want to speak with a transition specialist, if one is available where you are stationed.

Also, before we will be able to enroll you into one of our program, there are several steps to follow with the VA to apply for your GI Bill benefits. Some of these are outlined on the VA page in our Resources section of this website, but for complete details on the process, visit http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/.
