Does anyone know if a drug test is a part of the DOT physical. I've heard several different answers.
They can also test for cause if there are signs pointing to impairment. I highly recommend you not be doing anything that would show up on a drug test if you drive for a living. This is common sense, no?wily_old_vet said:Agree with unregistered. If God forbid you are in a major accident they have the right to have you tested but other than that no drug tests.
Dino makes a good point. I used to have Sleep Apnea, a sleep disorder indicated by heavy snoring. After having the surgery to correct this, which is having your tonsils and adnoids removed, it was still an issue if you write it down in your paperwork. I had to get a letter from my doctor proving it was done, even though the DOT Physical doctor could look down my throat and tell. Also, make sure the doctor completely goes through the booklet that UPS gives you and fills out everything including the correct dates on the DOT Card. Last year I had to make three trips to the Clinic because of stupid mistakes they made. I have got to go back in a couple of weeks for my yearly.dino said:FYI on DOT physical: if you snore, do not admit so on the questionaire.
