    I am setup to leave for western express Saturday. Ive read multiple threads on the company. I heard from drivers that they do urine test but i read that they hair folicle test also. Can someone please 100% verify if they do Hair or urine test?

    It isn't an "either/or" situation. EVERY trucking company is REQUIRED to do a pee test...pre-employment, random, post-incident, and for-cause. SOME companies choose to ALSO do a hair follicle test. The hair test is NOT a DOT required test, cannot be used in place of it, and only is done because of company policies. They still must perform the required pee tests even if they also test your hair.

    If you don't use drugs, it shouldn't matter either way.

    Just study hard and apply yourself and you should be able to pass any test.

    If you have to ask what type of Drug Test a Company performs, then you don't NEED to be behind the wheel, nor does any other Driver WANT you behind the wheel of ANY vehicle on the road.

    Get a job flipping burgers and leave the driving to a Professional.

    Just because a person asks what kind of drug tests companies give doesn't make them anything. I continuously ask the question and the morons come on making assumptions. Saturday will be 27 years drug and alcohol free and I will continue to ask. Don't be that guy, you look opinionated......
