    I hope Roadmaster trains you thoroughly, and be prepared to be pushed back a week or two beyond your expected graduation date. Also there's the fees they make you pay for: permit $16, Physical/drug test $110, and if you pass the CDL $30. If you fail the CDL its $100 out of your pocket to retake the test or $175 if you're using the test sites truck. And getting rescheduled is a major pain/delay. they might be booked up at every site and have to work you in somehow or another. thats where getting delayed and pushed back a week or 2 comes into play. All those fees are not included in the tuition. even though you're paying around $5k or more. I quit my job because i felt i couldn't pull off the weekend classes and retain the information, but that might be an option if your struggling for cash. If your out of town you also got to figure in the hotel accommodations, they will cover you for 3 weeks included in the tuition, but if you go over, you're responsible for every day/night afterwards. That can be costly!!! my buddy's racked up a pretty good chunk being pushed back just a week.

    We also had a difficult time getting the one on one training, the classes were so packed that there wasn't enough instructors.
    Most of them really didnt have the patience to teach anyways and were definitely in the wrong line of work.
    There were some guys/instructors that went the extra mile for you though. I had learned alot just from the students believe it or not. I Wish you the best of luck, I just graduated and signed with JBS before I started classes.

    As I recall JBS pays the cash rate for the class but not the accomodations so if RM financed your room and board you will be liable for that. You'll just have to come to some sort of payment agreement with RM. I'm sure it's not the first time a student had to pay back R&B in installments

    I visited RM last week to inquire about some refresher courses and got really irritated with Gal with how she was pushinh JBS. They must have a pretty good recruiting bonus
