There is more to this story. I’m a Roehl grad. All though several years now, but I had 2 classmates that took the state exam in wisconsin twice before they passed. I’m sorry but 1 and done there does not sound right to me

Thanks PJ...I was hoping a Roehl-er would confirm my thought.

So how about it there Dominique, please tell us the whole, unabashed story. Then we may actually be able to offer you sound advice.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Anytime sir!! I know the test and what Roehl teaches. Call me a skeptic. They bend over backwards for students. Heck I took my drive test in snow.

Hopefully we will hear more from the OP. Never read how many times the test was attempted, one, two, or three times. Just wrote failed the final test for DMV.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Packrat the OP didn’t state but left the impression it was 1 and done. If my assumption is wrong I apoligize. I just know the program, and folks involved, so I know there us more to this story.

If this was Roehl doing the OP wrong and they give the full detail, I’ll get a liad over there and let them take the drive test at DMV in my truck

I drove for Roehl, too, PJ.

Testing in your long nose Pete would be....interesting.

I brain farted while pre tripping the coupling systems and driver side of the trailer and missed 2 less parts than what was needed to pass. It was weird to me because the tester didn’t tell me that I failed until we went inside the truck for the in-cab inspection, which I passed 90/90. After he told me that I failed, I made a comment (this is where I believe that it cemented me not getting a second chance) and said that I thought if I failed on anything it would’ve been on 90 degree backing. I guess the tester told Roehl and felt that my joke was indication of lack of confidence or something and felt that I was undeserving of a second try.

Sorry...I cannot help but think you are still leaving out something.

Let me try to help you...; was it maybe your “attitude”.

Did you argue with the instructor or did the post-fail discussion become heated or contentious? No one will dismiss a student for telling a joke. Sorry.

I cannot believe Roehl would kick you out of training after only one failure due to a random comment, or some sarcastic joke, either. It must have been a very offensive statement for that to have happened.

Again, I don’t feel we are getting the entire story. Has to be more.

I understand, but If there was more to the story I would tell you all with no hesitation. It’s not something that I’m embarrassed to talk about, and I don’t harbor any bad feelings towards Roehl because of it.
