Mercedes-Benz dealerships appreciate the quality of well-trained MB DRIVE program graduates. By opening the door to military Veteran participation through a GI Bill® Registered Apprenticeship approved by the U.S. Department of Labor and State Approving Agency, dealers now have access to another source of exceptional talent.
Military Veterans bring an exceptional work ethic to a dealership service department. They are mature, responsible, adapt quickly to changing requirements, and they have been tested under the most demanding operational conditions. Hiring a Veteran is a intelligent business investment for any dealership seeking a skilled technician who is team oriented, mission focused, and understands the importance of delivering quality work.

This brings an added benefit to the dealership through additional financial support from the U.S. Government, provided directly to their newly hired Veteran, to promote success during the first year on the job.
