Military and Veteran Benefits at HDS Truck Driving Institute

A lot of individuals and businesses are thankful for the service and sacrifice of our country’s armed forces, but few are in a position to give back to the men and women who gave so much for our country. That’s why HDS Truck Driving Institute is proud to help veterans obtain their CDL in Tucson and other necessary qualifications and certifications for quality employment opportunities in the transportation industry. Here’s a look at some of the benefits we offer qualified veterans looking to attend a Tucson truck driving school.

HDS Truck Driving Institute students who qualify for the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post-9/11 GI Bill can receive tuition assistance and a monthly subsistence payment while attending truck driving school. The Post-9/11 GI Bill may be transferred to a spouse or children if you meet specific requirements.

Eligible military spouses may receive up to $4,000 of financial assistance through MyCAA, the Military Spouse Program. This financial assistance can help eligible military spouses pursue education, training, and licenses leading to a career in the transportation industry.
