These people are so rude and dont care about their students success. Youre just another tuition for them. Please choose wisely when looking for a CDL program. It will be too long to explain our experience but it was SO SO HORRIBLE. I dont know if Id even give a Zero star.. the 1 star was because I had no option!

I just completed class in Columbus,OH and it was very eventful and a great learning experience. I only gave 4 stars in the regard my class was pretty large in numbers and turns in the truck were limited. I did learn A LOT while there and the trainers I had helped me and I owe them for helping me. The trainers did everything they could in their power to help us and I was very appreciative of the time,work and effort they put in for us.

We spent more time in class than in practical training. We did not get enough practical training till the 4th week. On week 4 they rush you and forced you to take the skill test despite no enough training. It looks they hunt only for the money. I told them that I am not ready to take the test coz I did not felt I got the training that I need. However they forced me to take the test.

Went here almost 11 years ago to get my class A Cdl license. Theres room time and alot of pad time out learning meanuvering (45 degree backing/90 degree backing/suicide backing or also called blind side backing /parallel parking), then there is road time to learn shifting, lane change, driving interstate and driving in traffic. The test people are extremely merciless on pre trip/the parts of the rig and the tug test. So make sure you have some sort of stick and literally touch every part you talk about, and yes you get greasy or dirty while under the rig. There is different grant money you can see if you qualify for. I got a grant through Columbus state college. The teachers and office people are laid back, but that doesnt mean you need to be. Take this training seriously .

I just pass my CDL today! I will gave them 5 stars because of the trainors! specially to Eric and Dale! I failed my first state test but they never showed me that i cant do it, instead they gave me POSITIVE vibes and telling me i can make it! I love them so much! Every one of them are great! Different ways to teach you and for sure one of them works for you. I just hope that the management wont accept alot of students coz its hard for them to learn specially on skills if there trucks and trainors are limited. But all in all my experience was great! It was Fun! Hopefully there all Pass! THANK YOU to all my Trainors ❤

They will tell you theres no way you will get a local job straight out of school. That is not true. They are just trying to get you to sign with werner. I am aware it is a werner funded school but shouldnt lie to new drivers about opportunities. Other schools have recruiters coming in with tons of local and regional opportunities for new drivers.

I’ve been approved to attend this school for months now and did my DOT physical and quit my day job and have been ready to start class but they call me every week to tell me my enrollment has been pushed back another week. It’s happened 5 times in a row and now I’ve been without income for over a month because every week I’m supposed to start. Always saying “we can try to get you in next week or the week after” and then a few days later they call to say they can’t. Then they offer for me to take the class in another state and say they will add the hotel bill to what I owe through financing when there is already a 3k financing fee. This place is a joke. If I end up attending this year at all it’s because I have to, not because I want to. I’d like a career in trucking but this school is making me re think everything.

Want to thank all the trainers here for helping me obtain my CDLs. I came in knowing NOTHING about driving trucks and left a WINNER lol. Special thank to my specific trainers RICK (the BEST), DALE (LeBron James), Jay (Bourbon Street) and a little help from Keith (Mr. Give it to you Str8). These guys are one of a kind and are really helpful to me for sure. Appreciate you guys a lot!

Also Scott the instructor was a great help as he was able to help me adjust my focus and build confidence while showing me how to use my strengths. Thanks Scott! J was also a great motivator and an excellent person to work with, he helped me to believe in myself and encouraged me to be a success.

I had a great experience here. The instructors were very helpful and courteous. They made the time here enjoyable and not boring. I got my CDL A through them and they help you understand how to do everything with the trucks. It is an accelerated course so there is tons of information that is crammed in 3 weeks. If you pay attention and put the effort in you will pass.Also everyone there works. That includes the office people. The director himself I personally witnessed cleaning a bathroom and helping where needed.

This is the best truck driving training school ! Everyone was respectful an knowledgeable with plenty of tips to get you on your way to a cdl . My instructor rick took the time to explain the skills test an how the truck an trailer moves an they showed you not only how to back up but they also showed you how to fix your mistakes an thats half the battle is to know where you made the mistake an how to correct it. Id definitely recommend Roadmaster to anyone looking to get a cdl . Thanks again to the instructors they made it easy an fun to learn !!

Good school, lots of equipment, lots of students. Some equipment needs a bit of work but you will have plenty to run the courses with. It may be a bit higher priced than other options, if you are paying for the course as opposed to a company paying for your training or going the paid CDL schooling route with Werner or someone else that may use the school. If you are local to central Ohio it is a great option. Use your training time wisely. Dont worry about the instructors barking too many instructions. It is all part of the program and as you get further through it things will ease up and get better. They will do everything they can to assist you through the few weeks to get you ready to do your tests. Dont sweat the first week and a half.

It’s a good CDL school if that’s what you want you’ll do fine. The staff of the pad is super friendly and nice. When you get on the road that all changes all they’ll do is scream at you making you more nervous. Sure I do recommend this school but if you find another go there.

Excellent trainers! Very knowledgeable and fun, but quick to help if you are struggling. The office staff in Columbus, OH was helpful and had my interests in mind in all of our meetings together. I also had a great recruiter in Tampa, FL that stayed in touch with me, and still does as I continue my career in trucking.

I had my test today and my examiner failed me intentionally on the pre-trib because he didnt like me. I have passed the pre-trib on the first day of my evaluation and have been practicing since then for 2 more weeks to get ready for actual test and was ready for it. I have asked the head guys to give me another examiner before the test started or some one else watch us while Im on the test because I was confident no matter what this guy would fail me but unfortunately they ignored my request. I think there are some honorable teachers in the pad . But for sure Keith is extremely corrupted and un professional. I dont know how the state let him to be an examiner because he has low temperament and would retaliate you if he doesnt like you in person. I cant believe what I have seen today. Like I said there are good instructors there but keith and rick act they are cool and will make you pass if they like you and fail you if they dont. This reminds me those corrupted leaders in third world countries. Keith might be an instructor but he is highly uneducated and dont understand the basic rules of professional life. I have graduated from college and seen my different instructors and this is haunting me now. I have been coming to this class from 7 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday in the middle of World wide Pandemic, putting myself at risk everyday not knowing if Im gonna catch anything and some one just would play me like this is really frustrating.

Review №64

I was able to get my CDL Class A after completing this school. It was an acceptable school and training.The reason I did not give it more stars is due to how they did their financial arrangements. I was originally told that the cost was about $6,500 dollars. After they received my earnest money they said I only needed to pay them $5000 dollars and they would waive the $1500 dollars.After I started working for Werner I was expecting to get an extra $100 dollars a month for tuition reimbursement. What happened was Werner began paying the Waived $1500 dollars. It was not waived, at least not my understanding of what a waiver is. It was DEFERRED until I got a job. Due to the complexities of how Werner does their pay I actually get LESS money on the week that I get my extra $100 dollars. I am approaching the time when the $1500 will be paid off but I wanted to warn others that Roadmaster does not seem to keep their dealings completely transparent. Go in with open eyes and be prepared to loose your first $1500 dollars of tuition reimbursement if the company you hire on to offers it.

I would definitely recommend roadmaster to anyone who’s interested in getting CDL great stuff and great equipment one of my instructors was Craig if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have passed the skills and road portion, he knows the roads better than any instructor (my opinion) I appreciate what you have done for me Craig and all the instructors that helped me out.

This company as a whole is disrespectful and have major attitudes everytime no matter you gets the call. Someone basically falsely used my information to gain access to their school. I get non-stop calls and when you call in to inform of the issues they get nasty and rude and have the nerve to say the call is being recorded. Customer service go along way tone is everything and you all need coaching and lesson in customer service.

Great place to train with knowledgeable instructors and quality equipment. I had Garilynn as my road instructor and I learned a lot from her all the while making it fun and interesting. Only issue I have is student to instructor ratio on the pad is below my expectations. Overall a great place to learn. I would be really interested to know why the owner only makes remarks on reviews that are less than favorable instead of all. If you really want to know about this school or the instructors then read all reviews in their entirety, at that time weigh them to see which weighs the most the positive or the negative. Just because someone may not like a certain person and have personality conflicts they may give a bad review. To the owner and future students, look at it all before judging a certain instructor or judging the school as a whole.

My road instructor, Ron was excellent in his teaching abilities. The pad staff were very friendly professional and like family. Special shout out to Dale and Cathy for their patience in teaching me to stop over thinking my thought process of alley docking manuvering. Office staff, Sandra and Hannah were great! Always cheerful and upbeat. The only downfall is no website/phone service to inform students of cancellations due to inclement weather. Other than that; a great place to learn how to obtain your Class A CDL license and make your dreams come true.

Review №75

The classroom instructor was very knowledgeable(John) and the instructors i dealt with were great (Mike,John Paul, Paul,Craig,Ronnie,Dale,Cathy,Scott,Rick,Jay) they do the best they can with large classes and it seemed like ever changing rules they had to follow. I felt bad for them, not all the students pay attention or want to do the work and even when you do the work you might get to do a maneuver once or twice in a 2-3 hour period due to the class size. Believe me if it werent for Dale Scott Mike Ronnie and Cathy really taking their time with me i dont think i would have passed on my first attempt.A new class starts every week so if you arent picking things up quickly reach out to them they want you to do well. Id give 5 stars if it werent for the class size but the instructors do an amazing job with the task theyre given each and every week.

Don’t go to this school, is a lot of money for no reason. This is the worst cdl school in the country . Most of Instructor especially (Brian, Eric) is always on their phone, chatting with other instructors and very rude to the students, they always using the F word and disrespect the students. The main thing road master student doesn’t understand is that students are not professional truck drivers so we will make mistakes and is their job to help us instead of telling students to figure out their own. Don’t go there🙏🏾 You’ll regret it. 7000 for what 👎🏾 I went to the one in Columbus Ohio

Good school to get your CDL fast....It is what you make of it....I was having problems with parallel parking and Jason, Scott, Brian and Darrel went above and beyond to help me learn what I was doing wrong and pass my CDL on the first try......One thing that also sticks out was something that Ron my first road instructor said...There is no room for negativity in this truck Unfortunately Ron got sick during my training but much to my surprise Brian stepped up and finished are whole group....we all passed 1st tryDo some of the instructors chew tobacco? why yes they do....Theses are bad habits that these REAL TRUCKERS picked up along the way.....GET OVER IT!!! The instructors are the REAL DEAL and can share with you there years of REAL WORLD experience....If you take the time and are serious about putting in the effort in Im sure that youll be happy with Roadmaster

It was more challenging than I imagined. Some were not able to pass the course. Driving a 53 foot trailer can be difficult but their instructions make it happen. Not everyone can pass the course/test. Most are able to pass the test after the first or second try. Often a small but serious mistake will prevent them from passing. They will continue to work with you to improve needed skills. Instructors have a tough job but keep on trucking week after week to help students and to get them where they need to be.

If you speak English as a second language most of their instructrs dont care you, and they gonna help you less. It was my second day of maneuver when an instructor told me that the person or whoever paid my money (school tuition fee) has got lost, because he said you are not showing any progress, i felt so disappointed and i went toward administration and i requested him to let me join another team because i cannot stay with that teacher, he said i will let you that for next week. Next week too far for me.......finally i decided to quit the school at all.

The teacher is one of the most carless people I have ever met, he chews dip and spits it during class, doesnt ask if your lost or not, and he could care less to help you if your lost! I feel so bad for the people who barley speak English cause they are going to fail for sure! Even the recruiter said he should it be teaching cause she has head so many complaints!!! All the books and paper work are outdated (the horribale teacher even said). Im absulutlly disgusted with the way they teach. More like your own your own class.
