THREE types of Michigan CDL Skills Training Programs


Some large Michigan trucking companies maintain their own Truck Driving Schools. These Michigan trucking companies operated schools can be a good option for responsible individuals who do not have the financial means to pay for a private Michigan truck driving school. Upon satisfactory completion of the program you are employed by the Michigan trucking company that gave you the so called "free" training. The "catch" is that you have to sign a detailed contract before you start training. The contract normally requires you to meet standards at the school and to drive for the company for a specified period of time under specified conditions. If you fail to meet the conditions set forth in the contract, they will make you pay for the training and/or penalties for not fulfilling the contract . . . sometimes as high as $20,000. If you stay healthy and don't have a personal crisis while completing the terms of contract, this can work out just fine. However, in some cases, it has been the financial ruin of many a good man! CAUTION: READ AND UNDERSTAND AND BE PREPARED TO MEET THE CONDITIONS SET FORTH IN THE CONTRACT!

FOUR advantages of Michigan Company Sponsored CDL Schools . . .

  • FAST - Usually less than a month
  • High Quality Training - Includes followup after you receive your Michigan CDL for successful over-the-road driving (you basically work-for-them so they want you to succeed)
  • Little or no up-front tuition (read your contract - they aren't giving you "something for nothing"
  • Guaranteed Job! You are pre-qualified to work for the company upon completion of training

Michigan Truck Driving School tuition can vary from as little as $1500 to about $8000 with an average price somewhere around $4000. IF YOU ALREADY POSSESS A Michigan CDL PERMIT THEY WILL OFTEN DEEPLY DISCOUNT - others require you to possess a Michigan CDL permit and medical card prior to enrollment.

Advantages of regular Michigan Truck Driving Schools -

  • Competitive - Abundant choices available
  • No long term contract
  • Fast track to getting your Michigan CDL - as little as two weeks
  • Training can be tailored to your needs

This can be a good option for candidates who already have a job offer based upon obtaining a Michigan CDL and who can afford the up front tuition costs.

CHEAP Alternatives to Michigan Truck Driving Schools -

Michigan Truck or Bus Driving Schools can be very expensive and/or require long term contractual obligations. Many people cannot pay upwards of $8000 in tuition fees. Fortunately, there is an alternative route that a huge percentage of candidates use to obtain their Michigan CDL on-the-road driving skills experience.

Will one of these cheap or free alternates Michigan Truck Driving Schools work for you?

  • Employer Training. A huge percentage of Michigan CDL holders got their Skills training through their employer. Example: an excavation company - the new guy rides along with the old-timer who is a Michigan CDL holder. Once you obtain your Michigan CDL Temporary Permit, YOU can drive the vehicle, with the "old-timer" Michigan CDL holder in the passenger seat to gain experience to pass YOUR skills tests. Most employers want as many of their employees as possible to have a Michigan CDL - using the company vehicle for the skills test if the official skills tester doesn't provide a test vehicle for an additional fee (offered in many locations).
  • A Friend or Relative with a Michigan CDL. If you have a friend or relative with a Michigan CDL, you can often go out with them in exchange for helping them with their loads, to obtain your on-the-road experience to pass your skills tests.
  • Michigan School Districts often provide the Michigan School Bus CDL skills training for their prospective employees - especially those who already have their Michigan CDL Temporary Permit.

Advantages of CHEAP alternative Michigan CDL skills training

  • No tuition - DIRT CHEAP!
  • A more "relaxed" environment
  • No scheduling problems
