I am enrolling in NETTTS in Connecticut and I have heard there are new DOT physical requirements regarding weight and neck size. I am 46, 6'-1" tall and weigh around 340 (I have recently lost almost 70 pounds) I have a 21" neck and my blood pressure was 124/72 last week (I am on meds).
Before I go spending the money for the school I am wondering if I will be disqualified for a CDL before I even get one. I have an uncle in North Carolina who has been driving for 35+ years and he said they are getting stricter for DOT cards. His son-in-law is 50 pounds overweight and is petrified he will lose his CDL. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
