Awesome. We may have seen each other if you was down for breakfast this morning. I'm just up here in the room reading a couple of chapters then go and post in my Training Diary. But so far, this place is pretty awesome.

Hey Eric,

FVTC is great. Passed on Jan 31, out with a Roehl trainer on Feb 3rd, did the DSE two weeks ago, solo now. It's a great program!

Who is your FVTC instructor? Roehl or Fox valley?

Well, Monday, I start week 4 of a 4-week training period for Roehl Transport. I have a CDL test on Tuesday at 1 pm CST. In that test, I have to do a state specified pre-trip inspection , then 3 backing exercises, straightline, offset, and 90 degree, then a road test. Successful completion of this test leads to graduation on Thursday, and returning home next Friday. I will be home for 3-7 days, and then on the road with a driver trainer for 14-21 days. I am so impressed with being on Team Roehl! This company is really fantastic.

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
