    No I cannot. But arm hair was an alternative for some people. I am 99% certain facial hair will be accepted. I stayed at a holiday inn express last night. :)

    That is urine sample was not for drug test. Just checking sugar levels. No drug test for d.o.t. physicals. Unless company requires one

    Hair is hair, so get real!
    They can use any hair on your body. If you shave everything you will not even be considered.

    And by the way... it is not the follicle that they collect. It is a hair sample.
    The follicle is under the skin, and they do not dig in to get it.
    Learn some simple biology.

    Your arm pit hair, pubic hair, head hair, facial hair, arm or leg hair...
    If you have hair they will simply take some and test it.

    If you don't have 1.5in of head hair. They can use any body hair. and when they use body hair it can go as far back as 180 to 360 days.

    okay so i did my DOT physical, i got sent home for high blood pressure, so i have to get a clearance from my doctor to either say my BP is good after he tested it himself, or i need treatment, etc. Also, they took hair from my facial hair (beard).

    Clearance from your doc doesn't matter. When you get tested at Swift it has to be in the correct range.
    If it is high you will be put on meds to reduce it to the correct levels, and then you can try again after it is under control.
