I am currently looking into Roehl's "Get Your CDL Program". I noticed that they have a rider and pet policy. It mentions a "minimal fee" for a rider. I was wondering what the fee is for the rider, and also if there is a fee for the pets

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Call Roehl and ask them. I know there are some people on here who drive for them who might chime in though.

I don't know what the fees are but I do know that you cannot have a pet or rider for 6 months after going solo.

The rider "minimal fee" is actually an insurance premium. I think it's to cover the passenger should there be an accident.

Did you look at our Roehl Transport, Inc. Company Review?

The rider fee is 15 dollars. Errol is correct, the fee is an insurance premium for that rider. It's deducted weekly. Extremely reasonable. I have my son with me this week. Here are some other rules. 30 day maximum allowed, min age 10 years. Of course, safety reviews all drivers before giving the okay.

Jordan...the pet fee, I think is 650 dollars, now...I think 400 is refundable assuming no damage beyond normal wear and tear. The other 250 is kept as a cleaning fee once you've turned in the truck. There are weight and breed restrictions...and I think they want them spayed or neutered and up to date on shots....not 100 percent on the spayed/neutered thing.

We have Roehl's pet policy in our Review of Roeh's Company-Sponsored Training Program.

Does Roehl allow pets?

Application and approval required. $650 total pet fee, $400 is a refundable deposit. Dogs less than 60 pounds and cats are allowed, no other creatures. Pit bulls, Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, Chow, Wolf hybrids not allowed. Animal must be spayed or neutered. Pet carrier and proof of shots required. Roehl has installed special waste receptacles and created pet run areas at their terminals.

What is the Roehl's rider policy?

You become eligible to take a passenger after 90 days of employment, children must be 10 years of age to ride along, and there is a minimal fee for rider insurance.

Here is the page it's on:

Roehl's Company-Sponsored Training Program Review Page 5

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Company-sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

Thanks y'all for your help! I have decided to get my CDL through Roehl and will be leaving the 27th! Again, I have to say thanks for all the help on this thread and the site in general, it helped me so much. Between studying for tests and doing research on companies. I may post updates on my training
