    ok I know DOT Physical has qualifications that deem it necesary to take a sleep study at certain BMI or Neck size.
    What I am asking is what companies do not require a study of every applicant? it's not that I couldn't pass I just don't want to take one.

    I know Millis doesn't, anyone else?

    not really looking for all of them, Im sure that would be a long list but just the normal "bottom feeder" / Starter companies.

    Millis
    Roehl
    Prime
    Schneider
    Melton
    etc

    I don't think Millis has a sleep study. But if you have sleep apnea, then you have a problem and I suggest getting it taken care of before it kills you.

    again, not that I would have a problem passing the sleep study (because I do not have any sleep issues) I just don't want to do one if I can avoid it.

    I am not so certain it is required. I thought that still was relied upon the doctor who examines you and his line of questioning? If someone has a history of sleep apnea, I think it is required, otherwise, like I say, I do not believe it's official as of yet. Do some more research at websites for Landline magazine, Overdrive magazine, which can be found online.

    Sage advice. Best thing I ever did was get a sleep study. The results were horrifying. Now, with my CPAP, life is good again. You really have no idea how much better you'll sleep after you get your CPAP.

    Prime,Schneider,Crete are into sleep studies.

    These company doctors will ask you questions about your health. Just say no to it all. Sleep studies should be between you and your personal doctor. Thousands of drivers aren't dying daily from sleep apnea but the way these companies push it on drivers you'd think it was an epidemic.

    Sleep Apnea = the replacement for lease purchase scams

    Sleep study from a doctor. Good.
    Sleep study from a DOT doctor. Kickbacks

    I've heard that it's not a DOT requirement, but the DOT is "recommending" to doctors that they do follow up's on patients with a certain BMI.

    Its a sleep study, not a sleep test, there is no pass or fail to it.
