Simulators For Training....Good?

I have been checking out various schools in my area for CDL training. Most do not have simulators but the one I visited last does. They claim they are a great way to learn before actually getting behind the wheel to learn the shifting of a truck. Have any of you been through training with a simulator or have you heard opinions from others who used simulators and whether or not they were helpful? The instructor claims they are very realistic and have worked very well for their students compared to before when they did not have the simulators. I have been comparing places for about 3 months and really want to narrow it down now and pick the place that I think will give me the best training so any advice on this would be appreciated. Thanks all!

I DID IT!!! PASSED THE ROAD TEST.....

last Friday at the exam station in Eagan, MN. The need to study day in and day out is no more and this weekend I have really chilled out. Easy to do here as the temp this morning at 5:30 was -21 w/ a windchill. I lost a few points for what I considered putzy stuff, but it's all well and good, and in the same breath still important to get the feedback from my examiner. I graduate from school this next Friday and since I haven't called my recruiter yet from Werner, I'm not going to post the date yet of when I'd like to start orientation/training. I'm so pumped!!! Thanks drivers for information and support you've provided me. "Each day, a new beginning."

That is fabulous news! When you went into this......did you have any mechanical background or exposure to trucking at all or did you learn it all from school?

Do I or don't I?

Thanks for the encouragement. That's just what I need to hear. Roehl is actually where I believe I will be going too.

Do I or don't I?

That has been going over my mind every day. I have always wanted to drive truck and know other women who have done it and they loved it. It never fit with my life before with kids and things but now there is no reason I shouldn't go for it. I got all excited and revved up after visiting a local training school and then came home with full intentions of going for it. Then I did more research online on my own and saw a few things that concerned me such as companies lying about the pay which is a big deal or that the CDL training is very hard and you don't get the training you really need and the next thing you know I'm freaking myself out and wondering if it would be a mistake to change careers. Have any of you had this happen, went for it anyway and are so glad you did it and didn't chicken out? My husband fully supports me and says he knows I can do it and I'm worrying too much, and he is not a driver and has no interest in trucking himself. He just knows how much I have wanted to do it and is fully supportive of it. Talk to me girls!

Roehl CDL training program

Keep me posted when you get there how it is. I read a blog on here from someone who did it and it sounds very encouraging.

Roehl CDL training program

I am weighing options whether to go to a private school or try applying to the Roehl CDL training program where you are hired right after your CDL program. Anyone done this and have any advice on how the training was and what Roehl is like as an employer?
