So I'll be starting Swift training soon in Memphis I already got my DOT done will I have to do another one when I get there?


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.

If it was done by a Swift Approved Clinic you won't have to. Otherwise they will make you take another one. Also if any info on that card is incorrect they won't accept it & you will have to take it over. I had my own done by an approved clinic which they recommended but once I got to Salt Lake City, Utah & they checked everyone's information mine didn't have the box checked for CDL A. I can't quite remember what it says but I assumed that it asked for your current license class not what what you were applying for. So I think my had the "other" box checked because I had a class "E" license which wasn't listed. But come to find out that CDL A should have been checked. It wasn't clear on the paperwork that you should put "A" it just looks as if they wanted you to put your current license status down.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

I went through Maverick orientation recently and you get a new one done during their orientation. It was a smooth process.
