I have plans on attending Swift Memphis terminal or Utah terminal driving academy. Could any one tell me if they do hair follicle testing or urine for drugs! I’ve seen a lot of older forums on this subject just was seeing if I could get any updated info concerning that matter. Please help!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Did my DOT physical last month at the Memphis Health Center. They handed me a small blue cup.

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.

Ok have you heard anything about them switching to hair follicle . I know I will pass urine but I understand hair can have traces of thc in it for months even up to a year!

One of the drivers I just spoke with, stated that Swift will do both, starting after the 1st of the year.

Take that with a grain of salt.

Yes, you would find your own way home, and it would most likely ruin any chance of finding a job as a driver. If you think that there is even a chance of failing a hair test, wait at least a year, and make certain you are serious about this.
