    I need your help drivers.........where did you get a physical around here ?? Mine is coming up and I need to find a clinic just to stay qualified.........

    What about TWIC here ...I know we don't need it but is there an office in the area or do I need to head for the coast???

    Thanks!!

    You should have a clinic in town. Crane has a clinic, that i got my dot physical at. TWIC go look online. They will tell you where to get printed. I got printed in Odessa, for my Hazmat. What do you need TWIC card for?

    Ok Crane...check that out.....anywhere else?

    TWIC is because I have it and don't want it to lapse. Oilfield is spongy and I could end up on the street . I'm keeping all driver credentials up in case of exile and I'm forced back to a truck.

    Big Lake is like 10,000 people? They should have a walk in clinic there. On the south side of town in Crane is where I got my DOT physical done. Yeah I have a TWIC card too, I wanted to be a refinery operator. I have never seen it needed for trucking, in my almost 2 year experience.

    The two nearest places to get a TWIC are Houston or Oklahoma.

    You wont access a port or refinery on the gulf coast without it. I have for tanker yanker and if oil plays out I'll need it to L/O again.

    Wanted to be ? Why are you giving up ? All you need is an associates from a community college whom gives the course. I have it, you need names ?

    Also there is a clinic in Big Lake. Will call them Monday and see if they do DOT and found a TWIC office in Odessa.

    Big Lake has a population of 2936 according to the city limit sign. Not counting the influx of oilfield workers. I imagine they have a clinic but I haven't noticed it. I guess I should find out where it is in case I ever have a need for it! Another option would be San Angelo.
     
    chalupa Thanks this.
