This training seems to be very well structured. Since students already come into the program with a CDL driving permit, they are able to begin driving instruction from day one. This program seems very thorough and reputable.

On The Road Training - Phase II Itinerary

Roehl Transport flatbed CDL training

You'll be on the road with a Roehl certified trainer, where you'll put the principles learned in Phase 1 to work. You and your trainer will focus on refining your driving skills, maximizing fuel efficiency, trip planning, understanding how to utilize electronic on board log recording systems, learn how to handle freight and meet customer service expectations, and maintenance.

This phase of training is performance based and usually lasts 15 days. You'll earn $90 per day when you are training with a trainer.

Upon completion of Phase 2, they will verify your skills. After verification, they will issue you your first truck and give you your first work assignment (dispatch) routing you in a homeward bound direction.

On The Road Training Policies And Itinerary

How much will I be making when I'm on the road with a trainer?

You will earn $90 for every day you are with a trainer (beginning at phase 2 - see above).

Do they run your trainer and you as "team" operations or like a solo truck?

In phase 2, student drivers are given on the job training by a Certified Driver Trainer – this is not a “team” dispatch situation. Students also have a Fleet Training Manager who’ll assign training based on the specific load being hauled.

Is there more than one student per trainer and truck?

No, during Phase 2 training there is one student to one trainer.

Roehl Transport On The Road Training Policies And Itinerary

Do you have a "No sleeping in the top bunk while the truck is rolling" policy?

Sleeping in the top bunk while the truck is in motion is prohibited. Your training continues when the driver trainer is driving.

What is your policy for handling disputes between trainer and student?

Trainees are given phone numbers to call in case of any issues. If a new trainer needs to be assigned one will be provided.

Can you get a non-smoking trainer?

Yes, either smoking or non-smoking trainers can be requested.

What are the company's minimum qualifications to be a trainer?

Trainers attend an intensive course (Trainer Foundations) and have support available to ensure success.

Training at Roehl is different than most other company training programs. You are hired and paid as an employee on day one. Training to obtain your CDL is part of the job. You'll be paid $500 a week while you get your CDL. CDL training is four weeks. The training is available in multiple locations. After you have your CDL, you'll start your on-the-job training as a long haul truck driver (Phase two and three). During Phase two, skills are refined and there is no team driving involved. If you’re coming from the Roehl Transport CDL School, you’ll skip Phase 1 entirely. In Phase two, you’ll be assigned a Fleet Training Manager and a Certified Driver Trainer for your on the job training.

Most training companies do not include the first phase and instead, place students on a training truck, which is dispatched as a team operation almost immediately. Roehl does not operate the trucks as a “team” operation. You’re there to learn and be successful.
