Drug testing for CDL school

As I said previously, I'm not trying to skirt the system, or trick a test into showing a false negative. I'm okay with not using cannabis, I don't agree with the regulations and illegality of it, but that is a philosophical issue. I appreciate the sentiment. I am concerned with hair follicle, because I've read where people have tested positive after 6 months, and that really worries me short term until that time.

Thank you all for taking time to reply. It's all good advice, and I thank you for it.

Does anyone who might be a recent hire, or know a recent hire of Prime, know offhand if they do hair follicle testing, or just Urinalysis? I would prefer to not have to do hair follicle now, for obvious reasons, that could tack on another maybe 60 days. But whatever it ends up being, it ends up being.

Thank you all again, I hope to see you on the road one day soon.

Drug testing for CDL school

I'm 55 and starting a new career after being in the same field for 40 years.. About a two years ago, I started using cannabis. When I got laid off I thought I'd be able to find work.. Well, that hasn't happened, so I decided I was going to go to CDL school. I stopped using that and am seeking alternative ways.

So, I've been 40 days without, and still showing positive on a home test, that is why I am curious about their policy/procedures. I'm not sure if they test on day 1, or not. I'm not sure if they send you to a lab, or whether it is done at the school. If it's day 1, I will need to wait, if it's in a week or two after, then I should be okay.

This new career is very important, so if I need to wait, I will wait. It's tough though when you've been out of work for as long as I have.. I'm still looking at another 4 weeks, likely going to school, so time is of the essence, as I've been out of work for over 6 months. There is no money left. I was able to get a grant for school and I do not want to mess this up.

This is the reasoning for my question. I'm not trying to skirt the system, I just wanna work and make a living.

You're right, I have waited. I figured 40 days out would be okay, but apparently for me, that isn't the case. This is why I was wondering about the schools policies. I will be finding out soon, and if I need to wait on school, so be it.

Thank you, those things I already knew. I was more curious about the actual schools policy. I'll just show up tomorrow and let them know what is going on. Honesty is the best policy, but sometimes people judge before they know.

I am curious if anyone can tell me what the requirements or provisions might be for attending CDL school.

I am planning on attending C1 in Strafford, MO and I really do not wish to ask them about their testing policy and/or procedures because I do not want to raise any red flags. I was curious if someone may have that info and want to share.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
