Great news folks! We now have several awesome pages of information in our Trucker's Wiki about drug and alcohol testing:

Alcohol and Drug Policies & Testing

This is the main topic and it covers the Federal policies on who is tested, how often they're tested, and what drugs they test for.

DOT Drug And Alcohol Testing Information & Methods

This subtopic gives more specific information about the various types of tests that are done, what they detect, and how long they will detect it

Hair Follicle vs. Urinalysis: Breakdown By Company

This subtopic gives specific information about which types of testing are done by the various companies and when we received our last information on the company.

We'll continue to use this conversation to collect information and answer questions. All of the information we gather will be kept up to date in our wiki.

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.

Just looked at the new wiki page and Prime is listed as a hair follicle tester. Has this been verified? I went through the program in the middle of July 2015 and it was still urine testing. Just want to get the right information out there so it doesn't exclude those who are making a positive change in their life. Their training program is great and for previous drug users it is long enough that it can be a very detoxifying experience. I haven't been home since I started and that amount of time away from home would greatly benefit former users.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Hi, Brett!

I just went through their medical evaluation, and I can say for certain it's UA only. I hope that helps someone out there who's considering Prime.

Best wishes,
