Hey all! My husband and I are doing his application to Roehl. Well, on the last page it won't let you finish the application unless you acknowledge and accept the loan. Is this standard practice? Could we be on the hook if he doesn't even go? Thanks in advance!

A lot of companies will require assuming responsibility for repayment of training costs if a driver quits within a specified amount of time.

there will be no liability if he doesn't go

There will only be a problem if he goes but then quits before the specified interval....often it is a year but companies differ slightly on that.

The Roehl GYCDL program is a good one....very thorough....and some will like the relatively short amount of road training time required and that Roehl trains on a solo driving basis. For some, the road training won't be long enough but coupled with the GYCDL program, I think it is good so long as the person is a quick learner.

Great, thanks! We know he'll have to pay back regardless, it just really threw us off to see that in the application portion. No worries on fulfufilling length he is good about longevity. Filling out Millis today also - those are his top 2. Fingers crossed!
