ROEHL

That would have to be your decision alone. I have heard though that Roehl is a very good company to work for.

No BS Truth about Trucking Video

Every once and a while I find a really good video about trucking. This video, "The no BS truth about trucking" is worthy of a watch. This guy, I think lays it on the line for someone who wants to get into trucking. He's down to earth and tells it like it is/will be.

Schedule 2 Meds and Company Training

OK here goes. I am currently taking Concerta for ADD and Prozac/Welbutrin for Clinical depression. These meds keep me functioning like a regular person. This would not affect my learning or driving abilities. I have read in other forums of people who are on schedule 2 meds and their company training schools have said, "No way". I have contacted Stevens about this and they said that they don't discuss medications (in CAPS). I don't want to get my hopes up a go to the trouble of getting all signed up, and then shot down before I even get started. My Dr would sign a note for this with no problem. I also wouldn't want to go through a private school and then not get hired from an outside company. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Youtube is your friend....

This guy, "YourboyE The Trucker" has some very good videos on trucking. He is positive and realistic in his approach to trucking. This video on how to double-clutch will start a 3 part series which, if you are new to it, is very helpful and thorough. Just thought I'd put this out there.

ROEHL's Training Phases?

If Roehl is just a training company funded by government subsidies that just "churns out new drivers", would this apply to other training companies as well or is Roehl just particular that way? I am looking at Stevens Transport for training and might consider traditional CDL training to avoid any "traps". I don't see this however at Stevens.

Stevens Transport Training

I was reading about various terrains that the student driver will encounter during the OTR portion of training. The one that caught my eye was "back into a dock in the northeast region of the United States." That struck me as odd. Is there a difference elsewhere or is this something unique to Stevens? confused.gif Just curious.

Getting my CDL early

Even though I am not getting into trucking right away, can I get my CDL early? When I sign up with a company would I still need to go through the whole course, even as a refresher? It will still be a year or so before doing so.

Stevens Transport, FFE, or CR England?

Well, there is Swift in San Antonio. That would also be an option. I have a friend that drives for Swift and he really likes it. He been with them for 7 years now and now drives a dedicated route with Sears. Thoughts on Swift? I've heard good an not so good (21 cpm to start) but they are very good about hiring their students.
