Patrick, thank you for your response.

It occurred to me that I could go to my audiologist and have her give me a hearing test while wearing the hearing aid and see if the results exceed the minimum hearing criteria spelled out by the DOT.

And yeah, I'm becoming better and better at reading lips.


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.

Good morning Old School. Thank you for responding, and a thank you to Brett and all the other moderators and posters for creating and maintaining his very informative site. I have been combing through Trucking Truth off and on for several years. The kids are grown and off doing their thing. I am finally pursuing a career in trucking. I am attending a local truck driving school, and should be finishing up in a few weeks. I have interest in flatbedding, and have prehire letters from TMC and McElroy. I have found a number of threads on both of these companies here at TT, but much of the information is five to ten years old. I am hoping to hear from current employees of both companies to gather their insight on their experience with these two fine companies.


What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.
