Millis Transfer CDL Training

Im coming up on my 1st year at Millis its a great company and training program is top knotch if you got any questions let me know

Thanks for the review on Millis. I am looking at them or Roehl for training here in Georgia. Now did you have prior CDL experience and was doing refresher training or did you obtain your CDL through their training?

Finished training at Millis Transfer in Ga. Trainers were all outstanding. Learned a lot in the three weeks of training. Professional and understandable Instructors. I'd highly recommend this school for those wanting to be trained properly and safely. Brett, this site totally prepared me and helped me to choose the best company to start with. Spoke with many drivers who've been here for years and don't want to leave because they get consistent miles. Very veteran friendly too.

Instructor yelling

On my 2nd day of road training did way better on 2nd day than 1st way less grinding my problem is when I go to shift I drift into the white line making instructor yell . Other time was hitting the curve on a right turn I think him asking if I saw the car parked at the stop light ( I did he didn't see it stopping ) made me cut in too quick and I road up on side walk. Tommorow I hope is better going on a 350 mile haul and turn around 4 of us take turns

Did a lot of paperwork before lunch tax forms contracts etc. then after lunch went over rules and guidelines and do and dont about drugs etc. Payed out 400$

double-quotes-end.png

You say payed out $400. What was that for?

Medical card, cdl testing etc... or something else?

At Millis you pay 100 down for the school to hold your spot then pay 400.00 on 1st day of class .

ALSO you have to already have your permits and dot so that's another 200.00 then you pay them back 2000.00 over next 2 years
