I graduated ASUN CDL school 2 weeks ago.

They really do the "contract"....they take the cost of the CDL school and divide that by 12. Each month you are there 1/12th is paid back. So if you leave at 6 months you owe them half the cost of the school. That is how it is for me at least. If they have changed that I do not know any details on that.

Yes seems like I read that somewhere thanks for the info man, and hope all is well with you!

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.

It is a 2 year contract now at a rate of $30/wk instead of the $350/month. Anything left on it after the two years is forgiven. This is as of Friday when I talked to them. He said they didn’t have the updated file on it and had to semd the old o e. But I am pretty sly....It was via chat so I have his name and videoed the conversation so I have it in writing of sorts.

I just read on Jeramys diary someone said that it’s a 2 yr contract now the recruiter told them that. I was under the impression that is was a 6month contract. What did they tell you?

I hope this worked. I tried posting a photo of where he told me about the contract....I mean “promisary note”. Potato~potäto

Yea I hoped back on there to confirm it, it was Keller trucking that has the 6month contract. I’ll ask this week and make 100% sure it’s not a 2 year contract now.

I wonder if they give you a choice of paying more to shorten the the 2 years?

Weston was my recruiter and knows his stuff. That must have very recently changed. Interesting.

If it is the same, except the amount....they do not actually deduct that $30 from your checks. They "forgive" the debt at the new rate of $30 a week instead of $350 a month. You dont pay anything out of pocket unless you leave for any reason. May be good to confirm this with the recruiter. That is how it is working for me though.

Thanks Jeramy! I’m going to call him back tomorrow. I will ask about whether it is deducted or forgiven. Good to know Weston is not gonna BS me. But I have a friend that drives for Maverick and he said the same thing you did about every promise they made they kept. The only concern I have is with the physical agility test due to the fact that I am like an old Cadilac....I’m heavy and sit low to the ground.

For me.....the agility test wasn't hard at all. Just some basic stuff. I have seen several older people complete it with no issues. Craig Ryan has an awesome video on youtube that describes the agility test very well. I recommend going and checking that out. If you have any specific questions about it juat let me know.

And absolutely true about Maverick and their promises....none broke with me. No misleading....just truth. Weston was great for me, all of their recruiters are "no BS" type of people. They will ask a bunch of questions to be sure you are a good fit. They do a good job of qualifying you before you are invited to orientation. I really liked that. I felt comfortable that there would be no issues once I arrived, just get to work and learn all I can.
