    Hey there! I'm about to start classes at my local road master. All I have left to do is finish my DOT physical before classes start. I hit a road block with my dot physical. The person that conducted the physical is refusing to submit it because I mentioned that I had been treated for anxiety and depression. I also said I have been doing fine without meds the last few years, and now she wants me to be seen by a doctor to get a release. Problem is I have no doctor.. I haven't seen one in 2 years due to no insurance. So I went back to my old doctor to try to get seen on a sliding scale to have an evaluation done and they refused to because they don't do dot physicals or anything relating to it. Have any advice? Do I HAVE to use the clinic road master sent me to?

    Maybe you don't have to use their clinic but you'll have the same problem somewhere else. You're going to have to clear the anxiety/depression diagnosis. If you're over it now maybe have someone else give you a screening?

    That's a common problem; people volunteering information that is irrelevant.
    They talk about medications they took in the past.
    Roadmaster is too expensive anyway; plenty of much cheaper schools to attend.

    Chinatown, I have become your new fan. I've noticed your responses on almost every threat I look at and I can't help but appreciate the time you take educating and helping everyone here. I am also starting that process and I look forward to my new and last career. What schools would you recommend in the Jacksonville, Florida area other than Roadmasters to attend. I have been searching through this forum for the past 3 months and am unable to get an idea.
     
    LameMule, Pamela1990 and Chinatown Thank this.

    Have your old doctor send them the documentation they need.

    J-Tech will provide what you need. I think the course is 170 hours and many companies only want 160 hours.
    J-Tech also has a longer 8 week course.

    What type job do you want in trucking?
    For example, Heniff Transportation wants a 200 hr. school, so if that interests you, ask J-Tech if a 200 hr. course is available.

    This company, at majority of terminals, is Teamsters Union.
    Has their own cdl school. You'd attend the nearest school, then after graduation, be assigned to the Jacksonville terminal.

    For this one, call the company and ask which school they hire from. Ask if J-Tech is on their approved school list.
