    My wallet is missing. It has my license and DOT card in it. We have torn the house apart, gone back to the center, etc. It appears to me gone.

    Can I still work???

    The Dr office is a M-F only place. Everytime I have had a license renewal or DOT renewal, an OMS photocopies them. There should be a record with my center that I am eligible to drive.

    You don't need a DOT card or driver's license to drive. You only need them if you are stopped by the police.

    Big is right.
    Everyone should know their DL#, that way you can prove to the police you are who you say you are.

    Company policy states that you have to have your license and DOT card on your person to drive a UPS vehicle. However, just as most other policies this can and will be overlooked at the company's advantage......or not.

    Trpl is right but, of course, the only time that this will be a concern for you, or any of us, is if you are stopped for whatever reason or during a Keter audit. Let your center manager know what happened and he will probably ask that you get new paperwork before you are allowed to return to drive.

    and if you happen to have an accident without your license and DOT card on your person, you could be in very hot water.

    It sounds as though you may be taking an unplanned day off very soon to get your paperwork in order.

    Man, that sucks.

    On a friday before a holiday weekend no less.

    I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

    I hope you "find" your wallet over the weekend.

    Good luck.

    My post was partially meant to be tongue in cheek. This past Tuesday, my daughter rolled her car on the interstate. She was doing 65 MPH. Thankfully, she was wearing her seatbelt and walked (limped actually) away from the car. She got a sprained ankle and a few bruises. Because the car rolled, all her belongings were strewn about the interior. The State Police officers searched the car for her wallet which contained her license to no avail. They came to the conclusion that it was lost in the accident. Whenmy daughter got home from the ER that evening, she looked on the dining room table to see her wallet. She had left it there that morning.

    It does suck, because it is gone. Besides work, I also cannot pickup my new motorcycle because I do not have a license.

    Don't work w/out telling the boss-man about this. People get fired over crapola like this all the time. Let them know, and if they whine take the day off and get a new license and DOT card. Easy enough.

    A long time ago I took my drivers license, DOT card, etc out of my wallet and carry them in my right pants pocket. That way I always know were my tools of the trade are!

    Do whatever you have to to get your new m/c. That's a much bigger incentive than just being leagal for the brown machine.:peaceful:

    I make a color copy of both of those document and keep an electronic copy for just this reason. I would go to Motor Vehicles and get the one replaced and go to the physician that did the DOT physical and have them give you another. Good Luck

    The driver managers both knew. I deliver to a county seat, so I ordered my dup license today and the Doctor is doing up a new DOT card. In the meantime, I carried copies from my file.

    I made sure that the right people knew before I drove a UPS vehicle without carrying my license and DOT card.

    If you know your wallet was left in a public place, I would certainly be concerned about identity theft. Make sure you contact any credit card companies that could have been compromised. I would also subscribe to a company that monitors your credit.

    Already done.

    Thanks for the reminder, though.
