If there are any past ROEHL transport drivers or students that attended or are going attend the Appleton, WI training for your cdl. I was told that I would need to find my own ride from the hotel to the training center. Where is the hotel that they stick you in and what are the options of transportaion to get you to the school. The travel to Appleton is no problem, its the getting from the hotel and to school is the issue. If any past Roehl or current drivers that can help me that'll be great.

Also are there any other paid cdl schools that don't require a ten year work history application, like Swift or Prime does? I've tried Wilson cross them out and other companies that don't take anybody from Maine. Any help that would be great.

CDL:

  • 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.

For a brand new hire, any place is going to ask for the ten years employment history of all jobs.

How old are you that you don't have 10 years of work history? Have you tried CFI? I'm not sure if they currently hire from Maine.

By law companies need 10 years of work history for drives with CDLs. I think it's either 3 or 5 years. Unemployment and school count.

@Big Scott (CFI's biggest fan) I'm 34 and the reason I don't have ten years of work history. Is because I have made bad choices that caused me not to work for a period of time. I'm not going to discuss on things to anyone that I don't know. But does CFI do a paid cdl program?

Answering for him atm, yes they do. He will reply shortly, I'd imagine.

Did you read the link I posted for you?? From Brett. It's 3 years if you've not held a CDL. I'm sure at your age, there may be intricacies they consider, ie: were you in the Western hemisphere, working for ISIS et al. If you've been on W/Comp or Unemployment, or any gov't funded program, you'll need to include those dates. If you were incarcerated, list that also. They mostly want to know you were on US soil, doing USA things.
