Payment Plans

We at DCS School of Driving understand that it is difficult or even impossible to pull together the full amount for tuition.

Most trucking companies no longer offer a plan to pay for your schooling up-front

And those that do expect you to go to THEIR SCHOOL, Pay THEIR COSTS And be a servant for up to TWO YEARS.  (See how a Company School can trap you HERE.)

But we want to make it possible if you meet our eligibility requirement.  We now have TWO options available to you!


The plan requires you to pay part of the cost up-front ($1500).

The balance will be financed at 18% deferred for 14 months. This means that if all of your payments are made in full and on time you will not be charged any interest charges.

Repayment will be according to the following schedule: No less than 3 weeks after expected graduation date you will make your first payment of $250.  Every month afterwards for 13 months your payment will be $250.

There is a one-time application fee. This fee is $125 and covers costs to perform background checks.

This fee is non-refundable whether or not you are approved.
