Welcome to the forum Steve. There are many options available for Company Paid CDL Training Programs.

We highly recommend not placing all of your eggs into one basket. Use this link to Apply For Paid CDL Training.

Perhaps more important than selecting a company at this point, we highly recommend reviewing and studying the Trucking Truth starter links:

These links accomplish several goals; establishing realistic expectations, building a base of accurate information and a computer based training course that will enable a student to more easily pass the CLP tests.

Good luck!

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.

CLP:

Commercial Learner's Permit

Before getting their CDL, commercial drivers will receive their commercial learner's permit (CLP) upon passing the written portion of the CDL exam. They will not have to retake the written exam to get their CDL.

I will say this.. My current trainee came from CR England. He went through their school, and he's an excellent driver. The reason he left was before he initially went there, he was told that when he tested out, he'd be solo. It turns out that CR England is changing directions and going to an all team format, so after completing his training, he had to team. Team pay fresh out of school was 32 cpm split, so 16 cpm per driver. I've seen his pay stubs. He made arrangements to pay his obligation to them and they did release his certificate of training due to the change between his start and upgrade dates.

If you're not the teaming type, please be sure to verify this new team shift at CR England before you make your decision.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

This is HUGE.

I was working with a CR recruiter and he made no such mention. I said I wanted to be solo, and he said that would work for them.

I believe they team during training which is why I stop pursuing them...plus that was before I found this forum and was able to be more research.

Oh I also forgot to add, CR England trains in automatics, so you will have a manual transmission restriction on your CDL , as does my trainee. It's not that big of a deal to some people, but it's also something else to consider.

  • 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.

I had a buddy that I went to CDL school with had C R England sponsor his training. The way he explained it to me is that after you are done with a trainer, you go on another rookies driver as the 2nd seat. After 2-3 months of that then you will get your own truck. But, you get a 2nd seat fresh out of training. Once you hit your 6th month mark you can choose to go solo at that point. Things may have changed. But that is what my buddy had to do.

  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

My trainee was there just over 4 months. He was told he had to team because that's the direction the company was headed and that he would not ever be solo. They released him from his contract and gave him his training certificate because when he hired on was told he'd be solo as your friend was and then it changed and was told only teaming. That's why I'd recommend anyone making sure which way it will be. I don't think I'd like being hired me for solo then after upgrading being told they were going all team so I really don't know. Maybe it depends on where you live or whatever? Just the same, I'd recommend anyone actually verifying team or solo and get it in writing.

Things do change. My friend left C R England as soon as his contract was up. That was over a year ago. He got a local job near we're his mom lived; so he could help her due to some health issues she was having.
