Does anyone know about SPE Certification

I would just like to give an update to this situation after many phone calls going nowhere for a while to the FMCSA and the original company and even some labor layers. The original company has contacted me again. They says that I can drive for them now with out the spe certification. I do not know what changed there mind, They wanted me to see a company approved dot examiner which by luck I had already done from the very beginning. I have a new delema now because I thought I was not going to be able to drive for them I went and found another company that says they will let me drive for them with no hassles but recruiters will tell you anything to get you to come so now I have to decide to go with my original company or this other company that I found afterwards. I just fear that I may go through the whole process again with the new company.

Any thoughts would be great as I don't think anyone else may have had a similar situation.

This is where I believe it would say it pg 3 or 4. Sorry for the multiple post but could not figure out how to load more than one photo at a time.

Let me revise that previous statement. He says he passed the physical where he's training. The company can't demand it unless the physician marked it and noted it on the long form of his physical. If he checks that physical form and the doctor hasn't marked it as such, they can't make that demand.

Would this have been written in because i do not see anything on either form and I don't not see a box anywhere the cdl school physician assistant basically said the same thing as the first examiner the only thing I see is that they marked the box meets standards with periodic monitoring required for both.

Does anyone know about SPE Certification

Hello,

I would like to see if anyone knows about SPE Certification. I was in a driver training program to get your cdl and I passed a dot physical in NY my home state then again in Illinois where the the school was located. The company then sent me home saying that they would not hire me if I did not get the SPE Certification and were not very helpful with any information in regards to it except to e-mail the school I was at the SPE Certification Packet. May have been my misunderstanding but I thought that the SPE Certification was only necessary if you could not pass the DOT Physical and need a waiver. I do have a mild Disability. Both DOT PA's said that my disability would not effect me driving a cmv one physical was pretty through and the other was not as much. I will admit that they only gave me a 1yr card they thought I should have been reviewed sooner than two years. I admit that I have not seen a specialist in over a decade I was a three sport athlete through out HS.I had a business doing renovations and new construction and didn't really think trucking would be that much harder. I also raised farm animals and periodically would throw 300 bales of hay in a day or shovel 3 tons of bread of a trailer. I have looked at the FMCSA there is not much help there to be completely honest I have reached out to them they sent me a e-mail telling me that my request needed to be addressed by the corporate office that is all I have heard so far. Can this process be done without a company I see that they want you application to the carrier and road test results which you cannot get until after you get your CDL. I would like to say that I did already get my permit. I am sorry if i seem to be a little disorganized but I have spent few weeks before going to class to find out information to if it was a required thing no matter if you passed the DOT exam or not, and since I have been back calling different doctors and the place were I took the DOT physical. No one seems to know anything about it, or even able to tell me of someone that may be able to help.
