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.

HOS:

OOS:

Congratulations Daniel. I'm unfamiliar with that company, but I echo everything you said about the High Road Training Program and the General Discussion forum.

This site is great!

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?

Thanks for the reply Gunrunner. Sorry I am just now seeing it. I am looking into going to Millis and I'm curious, the $2,000 that is available for financing, is that the total cost of the program? Do they take it back out of your pay? What were the instructors like during training (patient vs in a rush)?
