Frequently asked questions

How long is the program?

The entire program consists of two parts: theory education and behind-the-wheel training.  The theory education is done 100% remotely and at your own pace - most students finish in one week. The behind-the-wheel training is done at our Kansas City facility and takes 10-12 days to complete.

Where will I stay?

The Zeta Driving School provides clean, comfortable, convenient accommodations for all of our students.  Our student advisors will coordinate your housing and provide you a packing list so you don't need to worry about anything before you arrive. 

How will I get to Kansas City?

Your student advisor will work with you to select the dates for you to travel to Kansas City to participate in the behind-the-wheel training. Once your training dates are selected, your student advisor will work with our in-house travel team to coordinate transportation options to get you to our facility and back home at the end of the program. 

How do I pay for the program?

The Zeta Driving School offers more than 30 different financial aid programs including grants, scholarships, loans, tuition reimbursement, and more! Most of our students pay $0 out-of-pocket to participate in the CDL A program. Housing and transportation costs can even be included in most of these financial aid programs!

Do I need a CDL permit before starting?

No! Our online theory education will prepare you to take your CDL permit exam in your home state. A CDL permit will be required prior to beginning the behind-the-wheel training. 

Where will I take my CDL road exam?

Students will take their CDL A road exam in Kansas City, Missouri during the in-residency program. Once you pass your CDL A road exam in Missouri, you can receive your CDL A license in your home state by presenting your road exam results to your local DMV.
