Start Training with Roehl Flatbed division on Mon 9/14

So you are training here in phx? Question: did mvd make you show your social security card to get your cdl permit? I can find the thing but I can find my original birth certificate. I can get a new ssn card, and I plan to first thing tomorrow morning, but it takes like 10 days to receive it. I'm supposed to start training at the roehl phx terminal on the 21st. Hope this does not delay me.

Good luck.

High road training

I have been training in the high road program on this website and it is stellar. I need to get my permit with general knowledge, air brakes, and combination. The last two are clearly marked, but which of those modules in Hugh road would be considered the general knowledge (in relation the permit test anyway)?

"Export" Radios & DOT Inspections

Keep in that shouting farther than you can hear does not serve much of a purpose. You can transmit a lot further than the next guy, but those folks hearing you way way off are probably running legal rigs and you will never hear their reply. Quite the one way convo.

I also looked at CR England and Swift. I thought I found a very similar program somewhere that paid 400 per week similar to Roehl but I can't find it now.

Call the recruiting number on the website. It is a different recruiter depending on where you country you are trying to be, but they do answer the phone and will direct you accordingly. I dealt with Megan Force she is very responsive.

I lost track of my other thread but I wanted to thank everyone that replied. This website is a great resource!

It looks like I am going to end up with Roehl in their paid get your CDL program. They pay 500 per week throughout their 4 week CDL school and then 90 per day while you are with your trainer (2 weeks). After that you have a 120k mile commitment but you never have to pay them back. Starting pay after training is .35 per mile, I'll be at about .40 a mile within nine months.

So this all sounds like a great way to come into the industry. I have received my offer and passed my DOT physical. Im studying for the permit and will start at Roehl's PHX terminal on the 21st.

I just want to make sure I am considering all of my options. I know there are other company sponsored CDL programs but I've yet to find one that pays like Roehl does. Ive been out of work for a while so the 500 per week will be a big help.

Is there another company/program I should be considering?

Hello and question

Hi all. I am a 30 year old gent considering a career transition into trucking. I have been lurking about and reading and I will probably land with Roehl in their paid CDL training. Especially since I am only about 35 minutes from their Phoenix terminal and can still be home during school.

Anyway, I was wondering about parking and idling. Let's say I'm stopped somewhere for the night, a truck stop or rest stop. Am I allowed to idle the truck to keep my power and climate control going? If not, does that change if I am driving a reefer? Are you then allowed to idle to keep the reefer cold? Also, DOT limits you to ten hours a day driving correct?

Thanks.
