Pre-Hire Letters

If your CDL school or company financing your CDL program requires a pre-hire letter before you can attend their course, contact a Melton recruiter at 866-715-8563 and they can send this letter directly to them.

If you graduate on a Friday, you can be in Melton’s on-the-job training program as soon as Monday with our convenient pre-hire process.

Tuition Reimbursement Program

Looking for truck driving companies with tuition reimbursement? New truck drivers with less than 5 months of experience could qualify for Melton’s tuition reimbursement program. This program will reimburse you $150 every month up to $10,000! If you paid less than $10,000 pursuing your CDL-A training, the payout will stop at the amount paid.

Once you are off your road trainer truck and you’ve officially started your flatbed trucking job, your payments will begin to send on your hire date each month and will continue until fully paid.

Flatbed CDL training at Melton
I love working with/for Melton! I think your program for drivers with no experience is excellent. Every person I’ve interacted with, either in person or over the phone, has been great. I’m not sure what more a driver fresh out of trucking school could ask for. Sure, the job is hard sometimes, that’s the job. The company has always treated me very, very well. Thank you! -Melton Driver
