Getting back into finishing my CDL. I passed the written part almost two years ago but had to stop due to personal reasons,now I'm wanting to finish but the school I went to closed down. Company back then was Celadon and had a school in Gadsden AL. I'm trying to find a school that pays while training. Any advice would be appreciated

CDL:

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.

Prime pays a minimum of 700 dollars per week after you have your CDL , and are on your trainer's truck. Roehl starts paying you from day one. I think their training pay it s 600 dollars per week. If you do the math, they come out about the same due to the couple of weeks that you go without pay at Prime. They (Prime) will advance you 200 dollars per week during that time if you need it. Then they deduct it at about fifty bucks per week once you start getting paid. Both of them are great companies to train with, just remember you need to be ready to commit for a full year to them.

Thanks. I did look into Roehl and a few others and I read reviews about them but every company has it's pros and cons and I do know I have to stay with them for at least a year. I do like the fact that Roehl pays u from day one.

Maverick does also and it’s only a 6 month contract.

CFI pays all your transportation, food and hotel while your in training 3 to 4 weeks. Then they pay $100.00 cash for 4 days of orientation. Then it's out with your trainer for at least 7500 miles at 26 CPM. You also get NE pay detention and extra stop pay. Once you upgrade you start at 35 CPM. Hope that helps.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.
