    Does this company test for Sleep Apnea? I hear a lot of drivers are having trouble getting past the sleep apnea testing the DOT doc is giving?

    Any idea if they drug test both hair and urine?

    geez

    if you get tested for sleep apnea, fail the test and get the treatment, sleep better and feel better, what's wrong with that? in other words, why would you ask?

    if you're concerned about passing any kind of drug test, don't bother coming into this business. the first time scrub bumpers with somebody a drug test will be required.when you fail you will go home.you won't get another job in this business if you fail a drug test.why would you bother going to the expense of getting a license in this business if you're going to fail a drug test either sooner or later.

    thank you for asking I hope that clears everything up.

    If you have to ask about hair vs urine this is the wrong profession for you.

    They take a hair sample, and make you pee on it.

    I thought they made you pee in a cup and then mixed your hair sample in it lol, seriously though, if your worried about a drug test just give up your cdl and stay away from me and everyone else on the road

    while i understand you guys giving folks a hard time about drug test its just a question. maybe this person use to smoke the good good and stopped. a hair test goes back at least 90 days and theyre worried about failing that particular test. maybe they wont come and hold off until they feel they can pass the test.. while as long as they hadnt hit the good good in the past month or so maybe theyll get past that one. doesnt mean they will have a bong in the luggage waiting to get in the truck and fire up. Its kills me to see the way some of you respond to people when asked about drug test. Obviously they care whether or not they pass, so why not just tell them.....

    Interstate doesn't regulate the sleep apnea testing. They will send you to a clinic to get a DOT physical, and if that doctor says you need to take it, then that's what you need to do.

    As for the drug test, I think they start with a stool sample, pour in some of your blood, add hair and then let you pee on it for fun................
