Hi, have not been on here for awhile. Roehl drivers how is the physical capacity test? Do most pass this test? Just curious about how it goes. Thanks

Roehl's test is a little more difficult than the one many others use, because they take your BP at the completion of each exercise, and if it goes up too much, you fail. The test itself is not difficult. If you do not smoke and are in half decent shape, you will pass it. I'm an old, fat slob and I had no trouble with it at all. On the other hand, I saw two young recently out of the marines guys fail. Why? They were heavy smokers.

I failed the test with Roehl because my heart rate was a 3 bpm to high, but guys way older and bigger than me where able to pass. If your in decent shape you should be able to pass no problems.

I started back with Roehl in January. The use a new machine for their hiring physical test. It measures your strength and agility based on a predetermined score. If you score higher than the predetermined number your ok to proceed to the next step.

Google Roehl physical test...pretty sure it’s in there. In fact I think Roehl put out there own promo video. It’s not that difficult.

Good luck
