The company I work for needs subs, and activity drivers for weekends as well as routes... If you tell them you want to work for them they pay you to learn, they teach you all you need to know, they give you over the road instruction as well as making sure you are prepped for the driving test.... All day their expense, and they pay for the physical, and they provide the vehicle to test in while paying you to do it.... Here in Minnesota that is 5 written tests (CDL classB, Passanger endorsement, School bus, air brake endorsement, and drivers license written) then you need a physical, and a background check all paid for by them.....You really can't go wrong going that route, and maybe you work a Saturday here and there driving a football team to a game or two and you get paid for that. If ask around with your local school districts I am sure you can find a deal way better than paying for a school.
You might even enjoy the kids if you decide to do some trips after you get your license.... I know I do!
It might be worth looking into.
I wish you the best in your journey.
