Congrats and I hope to see you around the terminals some day. You will get alot of knowledge very quickly through there program that is where I got my cdl so don't let it overwhelm you and ask lots of questions even you think they might sound dumb because every little bit that you can remember the better you will be because once you go solo its like you are starting from scratch and you have forgotten everything lol.

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.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Good luck Mike! I went to RDTC and there is so much to learn in a short period of time. I have been driving solo for 2 months now, and just now some of the things they taught in school are beginning to make sense. I would love to know who you get for your instructors do stop back and let us know!

I researched long and hard before going with Roehl as my first company. They generally seem concerned with safety, which was big for me as a rookie driver. I went to private CDL school, then went with Roehl. I have already seen some tuition reimbursement checks.

It is a very difficult journey. Just keep focused and cool.

I hope to see you in one of the terminals.
