After reading many training stories I realized that all major schools are very similar. The only big difference is driving schedule. Being out for 3-4 weeks doesn't work for me, so I decided to go with Roehl, they have a lot of optins (7/4, 7-3; 7-7; 14-14 and more). Today I got my CLP in Concord, NH. The recruiting lady from Roehl wrote that she would call me tomorrow. Hopefully, soon I will have what to share with the forum.

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.

That's great Andrey! Keep us posted.

Trucking is a challenging career to break into. It's a very demanding career. You seem to have a feel for what you need, and I hope you find success at Roehl. They run a great operation. There flexible schedules are very appealing to some folks like yourself. I loved the over the road lifestyle, and my situation at home allowed me the freedom to pursue it with gusto. I hope you manage to make this work for you and your family. Hang in there and do your best. Roehl will certainly give you the tools to make it happen. We've had several of our members make a good start to their careers at Roehl.

Over The Road:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I asked to be trained on a 10 speed, they said it is Marshfield, WI.

I was surprised to learn that they don't cover travel anymore. I'll be driving from NH, it is about 1,300 miles.

They don't reimburse for travel to the training location?

That's what they told me.

I am supposed to start in Marshfield as well! I am not coming from quite as far (I am in GA), but it is still quite a drive. The recruiter said that they would reimburse a hotel stay (up to $64) so that people are able to split it to two days. But that there definitely wasn't any reimbursement for travel to training.

So, if all goes well, I should see you there!

That would be a deal breaker for me. Plenty of companies pay for or provide transportation.

I didn't get my CDL there, but Roehl was the first solo driving job I had in 2016.

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.
