Family values bring father and son to TeamRoehl

To ensure that new drivers meet a standard level of safety, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has created the Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) mandate. The ELDT establishes a uniform national benchmark to ensure all new drivers have the same safety skills regardless of their licensed state, the truck driving school or CDL training program where they learned to drive. In this article, we address some frequently ask questions surrounding the topic of ELDT.



Roehl Transport is one of North America’s largest, safest and most successful trucking companies. We’re family owned and we’re built on Values. And it’s those values that led Don N. to recommend Roehl’s Get Your CDL Program to his son, Matt.

Don joined Roehl about four years ago as an application developer, and he said that Roehl is a “quality company through and through.”
So when Matt’s job was impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, Don referred him to our on-the-job paid CDL training program, where Matt developed the skills to be a professional truck driver. Matt shared that the training was “very good and very fast”, and he felt like he was given the skills to be successful.

Now, rather than dreading going to work, Matt is focused on his goals to become an Owner Operator and a trainer in our Curtainside Division, and he’s already on his way. He has driven about 50,000 miles with Roehl and has visited all four coastlines: north, south, east, and west. As Johnny Cash had sung, “I’ve been everywhere, man. I’ve been everywhere.”
Being a member of TeamRoehl means we’re connected and share values – and many teammates say Roehl feels like family, and for Don & Matt, Roehl truly is.
