Take permit test without prior medical?

I am not an expert- but anything that could make you lose consciousness will fail ya. Diabetes fits that category. I would ask the Doc for a 90 day DOT until they can get the issue sorted.

My question would be do the results preclude you passing a DOT physical?

Either the worst or best truckers song of all time.

I don't think it is best or worse but 'Convoy' by CW McCall needs a mention. A #1 hit on Country and Pop charts. The song impacted popular culture and contributed to the CB craze of the 70's.

Contradicting Learning Material

I would say the 'right' way is the way the person who is grading you says it should be done, i.e., that state of Oregon.

OK, I have 2 questions.

A person signs on with ABC trucking to go to their school. How does one get their CDL if the training is not in the employee's home state? People go half way across the country and get their cdl, how does that work?

How restrictive, in relation to job prospects, is it for a person to have a CDL but did not go to an 'official' school?

When you gotta go

Use the device in the link. Keep an empty quart size bottle in the truck. Keep a quart size or larger jug of water and a spray bottle of a Clorox bathroom cleaner. Use the water and Clorox bathroom cleaner to rinse and disinfect the device and your pee bottle after you dump it. I would recommend- Rinse-disinfect-rinse.
