After a lot of reading talking to a lot of people I just signed on with Roehl head out the 26th start there GYCDL and Honor program the 27th. Want to say thank you to all of you that answered all my questions and took the time to talk to me.

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.

Congratulations Gary!

I see Roehl flat-beds at a lot of the places I go. In fact I parked right next to one last night in Dayton, Ohio.

Maybe we will run across each other some day.

Hang in there - the training can be trying, but the career is definitely worth the commitment that will move you on into your own solo truck one day. Then, of course, it seems like you've stepped into a whole new arena of training.

I like the way Roehl handles their new drivers. You should be able to do real well with them.

Gary is the only terminal with a cafeteria.smile.gif

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.
