I am with Prime, so I have no idea. Just had to pop on here and let you know I love your name. LOL

Check out the section on here that gives info on each company. That might tell you. There is also a pretty long thread about drug testing if you do a search. I'd post links, but I am not sure how.

If there is any possibility of you testing positive for any illegal drugs in a follicle test, I wouldn't even apply anywhere. You never know when a company might decide to change their testing procedures, and if you test positive once for something illegal, you're screwed for years at least.

Last we heard they were doing hair follicle testing:

Hair Follicle vs. Urinalysis Drug Testing: Breakdown By Company

And FarmerBob is right. Do not even consider getting started in trucking until you know you can pass a drug test. Failing one will set you back many, many years.

Thanks 😘😘 well the thing is I currently work for CR England and they are listed as folicial testing here on this site but I got there and did a regular urine test. I am a new driver I'm not currently doing any drugs but before I started working I smoked weed 😩 I just don't want to go somewhere that looks back let's say "a year" and I fail for some dumb reason

I'm not going to look it up now, but I believe that Pee Test is the only test accepted by the FMCSA , so far. Do a TT search.

That is correct however some trucking companies have their own policies

"Technically" - FMCSA/DOT requires a urine screen - but new rulemaking is in the works to "officially allow" optional hair follicle (and will probably make it mandatory in a number of years).

On December 4, 2015, the FAST Act transportation bill was signed into law by President Obama. Among other provisions, it allows for hair follicle drug testing as a DOT-approved method, but not until the Department of Health and Human Services establishes guidelines for testing, which must be completed within a year.

It's been a year now - so we should be seeing something one way or the other, relatively soon.

So even companies that do hair testing are "supposed to do" urine also. We've heard that some do not do urine - and if you get bounced for a hair (where a urine wasn't done) then "technically" it doesn't count as a FAILED DOT DRUG TEST - but a FAILED PRE-EMPLOYMENT TEST.

Either way - fail either one with an "illicit substance" - and good luck finding work in this industry - even if you do the SAP Return To Duty Protocol.

You might be able to "explain away" those Vicodins you took during a root canal last month - and you'd better be able to get THE DENTIST TO VERIFY.

Pop for coke, weed, pcp or anything else - you're not going to be 'splainin that away.

I had major hernia surgery in May - lots of morphine, dilaudid and vicodin (yummy - 4 day vacation in the hospital). Would REALLY HATE to have to explain it though in a drug screen - even though it's documented and perfectly legit.

Typically - the folks most concerned about what a particular company uses for drug screens - are the ones MOST WORRIED ABOUT FAILING ONE.
