Hello,

I am a new comer here and new to the trucking industry. After 15 years spent flying the friendly skies as an airline pilot, it was time for a new career and a new adventure.

I have applied to Roehl Transport for their CDL program and I am up to the point of getting my CDL Learner's Permit from my home state. Question for those of you who went thru hiring process: once you completed DOT Pre employment physical, Drug test and CDL permit, how soon were you given a class date? Of course, I will check with my recruiter next week, just wanted to touch base with fellow Roehl drivers to see what everybody's experience was.

Have a nice weekend, CT176

Howdy, CT176 and welcome to our forum!

As we await a Roehl driver to check in and answer your questions, here are a few current diaries from guys training w/Roehl right now; perhaps your answers can be found within.

Not with Roehl but everything is screwed up still with the Chinese Virus. Someone will be along to answer before long. Welcome to Trucking Truth.

Not a Roehl driver, but pre-covid you could be in class within a couple days. Now that class sizes are smaller it may take a couple weeks but your recruiter will be able to give you a solid answer.
