    Hi, my husband is a driver and I am looking to get my CDL so we can eventually run team. I am wondering what company is the best to go with for a driver paid training program? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Do it on your own, then you'll be free to hire anywhere you want when you're done.

    If you can swing it.. do it on your own dime.
    If you go to a company program, they'll own you for a while.
    If you're gonna be running team w hubby, you should be able to pay it off reasonably well.
    Do your homework.

    Probably about half of all trucking companies offer Tuition Reimbursement that can help you repay your CDL school loan, if you take one out. Also, your state may have money to pay for your CDL school through their WIA/WOIA program which pays for some vocational training for underemployed/unemployed workers. Check with your state unemployment office. If they have money and qualify it is free to you.

    Every CDL school has sources of loan money.

    Is your husband with a good company? Would you be able to handle him teaching and training you? If not, does his company have a CDL program so you could get your CDL through them, train with a different driver, then when your training is done jump on the truck with him?
    If not, they really are all about the same, find the one you will have to spend the shortest time with and go for it.
