I didn't believe this myself until an astute viewer of my YouTube channel sent me this video.
I don't know what else to say. Could there be more proof that CR England could care less about training people and more about making that money? Now, I emailed the creator of this video and he was kind enough to answer some questions for me.
Trainers are not required to take 2 students but are strongly encouraged to do so.
Students do not have to go with a trainer that takes 2, they can wait for a solo trainer but they may wait weeks, unpaid.
Trainers make $300 per student, $200 when they upgrade and $100 when they get their CDL hard copy. This certainly encourages you to take 2.
Trainers get 1 cent per mile for each mile their students drive for the next year. That also encourages you to take 2.
This trainer is getting about 6000 miles a week and drives little to none of it. He gets 34 cents a mile for all miles plus bonuses and he says he gets $2200-$2900 a week depending on bonus. I can see that a doable.
My take: It should be illegal to take 3 in a truck. CR England should be ashamed of themselves. Maybe they can do a rap song about that. CR England has their own page on my website HERE.
I would like to hear from you if you have been trained in a 3 bunk truck. Email me HERE.
