Some drivers do cross into Canada, so in addition to having a valid US Passport, some drivers must be legally allowed to cross the Canadian border. To acquire a HazMat endorsement, drivers must undergo a more thorough background investigation and submit fingerprints to the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). The cost for processing depends on your home state, but is normally less than $100.

Cost Structure Of Roehl Transport's Driver Training

There is no cost to Roehl’s Get Your CDL Program. Drivers that want to attend the training give a commitment to drive for Roehl in exchange for the value of our program (120,000 miles or about 15 months).

Roehl Get Your CDL participants will, however, be responsible for the cost to get their CDL permit. Transportation is generally covered, though many drivers will be training close enough to their home to drive back and forth.

Drivers who attend private CDL schools may be eligible for tuition reimbursement up to $6,000. You will need to provide a receipt showing the amount you paid for CDL school tuition.

Get Your CDL drivers who leave Roehl on their own before fulfilling their commitment will be responsible for the full cost of the program.

Roehl is one of the few companies that doesn't offer any options to pay for the schooling and training, so there really is no cost structure.

Your CDl school is paid for as long as you fulfill your contract, otherwise you will be on the hook for the full amount.

Roehl’s paid CDL training program will get you ready to test for your commercial driver's license in a few weeks. There's a lot of information for you to learn, and you'll begin your training at 7 am and conclude at 5 pm each day.

You'll train with late model equipment - the types of trucks and trailers you'll drive when you are actually doing the job on your own.

You'll be in a small group - your instructor will train you and two others (3 to 1 ratio). All our instructors have practical OTR experience, many of them working as Driver Trainers prior to working in a CDL training environment.

You'll test for your CDL testing in the last week of the program.

Once you have your CDL, you'll enter Phase 2 of our training program. You will then go out on the road with a certified driver trainer who'll work with you on additional skills as you do the job.

What You'll Learn in the Get Your CDL Program

The first portion of your CDL training – the first four weeks - includes:

  • Basic Control
  • Vehicle Inspections
  • Control Systems
  • Shifting
  • Speed management
  • Space management
  • Backing/Docking
  • Turning
  • Coupling/uncoupling
  • Hazard perception
  • Protective driving
  • Life outside the truck
  • Communication systems
  • Atlas use and trip planning
  • Accident procedures

Once you have your CDL, you'll proceed to the second phase of the training with a certified driver trainer.

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
