my advice would be to consult a lawyer.

Yes, thank you, that is the plan, I am trying to get the written contract from Roehl. For some reason, they told me that it is "internal information." Really? :-)

Thinking about it, I never got a contract from FedEx. I read and signed everything on their computer. I usually take pictures of everything I sign, but I didn't with them.

I'm glad to see you did decide to pay them. I look at it the same as going to a trucking school. They paid the cost for you to get your cdl , they guaranteed you a job afterward then **** happened and they let you go. Getting your cdl from a private school, you weren't guaranteed a job and **** still could have happened for them to let you go and you would still owe the private school money.

I will say that I'm kind of concerned about the companies not wanting to fax over a contract or whatever that they had you sign. I know I didn't get a copy of my contract when I signed on with my current company, I don't remember if I had a copy when I went to roehl, but that is suspicious to me.

CDL:

  • 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.

I believe legally - any contract or agreement you sign - both parties are required/entitled to have a copy, or a copy be accessible/provided.

I am no legal expert, but I believe they are required to provide you a copy.

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.

I own my cars, and insurance is not required in NH.

Wow is this really true? So if I'm driving my (hypothetical) $85,000 Mercedes to my (again, hypothetical) summer camp on Lake Winnipesaukee, and some uninsured kid with no assets and no job T-bones me, I'm SOL.

Yes, in this case your hypothetical German car goes to a junk yard and you are getting maybe a few dollars a week from the kids' wages :-)
