    Then just wait till the hr rep calls and see what you have to do.

    Good luck to you. There have been many amputees do the job. There's a video off a flatbedder with an amputated arm below the elbow, he's out there tearing it up
     
    mega747400 Thanks this.

    I used to flat bed, I don't see them hiring you due to your disability. If pulling a van, I would say you are OK. The only way I see you flat bedding is with your own authority and equipment. But, that is just one man's opinion, and you know what they say about opinions. ;-)

    Good luck, I'm sure you'll do fine.

    A lot of drivers only have half a brain, so you're probably already well ahead of them.
