DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Wow. If your looking to switch to Heyl why would you need to know what drug test they do? 10 months ago you were asking about May trucking and their test. In ten months you would be clean for either a urine or hair follicle test. Unless, of course you used.

Big PN... "it" gets into your hair from inhaling secondary pot smoke not through absorption. Although definitely in lower concentrations, it may still be detected on a hair follicle test. Zero tolerance means just that, even a trace amount is a fail. Yes the risk is lower, but IMO it's still a risk not worth taking.

Not trying to tell you or anyone else how to live their life, but if you want a career as a truck driver, it might be in your long-term, best interest to find a new set of "people" and/or friends who are not smoking pot. If you are around "it", the temptation to "partake" is that much greater.

I would call a Heyl recruiter to determine how they administer their drug screen.

Good luck.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
