The cost of our program is $6000.00 and the estimated fees are approximately $400  for your DOT physical, drug screen, CDL permit, and CDL License. Most companies we place our students with pay tuition reimbursement. The trucking company will pay for your schooling, just not up front. We offer financing of the tuition and get the company you go to work for to help pay it back.

Our in-house finance options do not require a credit check, co-signer or contract with a trucking company! As long as you are qualified for job placement, you are qualified for financing options with Tampa Truck Driving School.

What makes our financing even better is that your student loan payments don’t begin until 60 days after you graduate. This gives you a full two months to get out there and make some money before you have to start making payments towards your tuition loan.

Just one other way TTDS strives to make you successful!

Coupled with the fact that the majority of carriers that hire our students have full tuition reimbursement programs and it has never been easier to get started in the transportation industry.
