What if I can not pass the physical to get a CDL.

And I also challange anyone to go get a CDL for $50
More like $500 time you pay for the CDL learners permit so you can take the road test; the CDL
license itself; road test; physical; drive to a DMV that gives out CDL's (cause everyone does not); take off work to do all of above you are well over $50

Lets say you are right and it does cost 500 bucks altogether. Thats about the cost of 1 or 2 overweight tickets depending on how much over of course. Im not saying everyone needs to have a cdl but for those of you flirting with the line between commercial and non it just seems to me that the answer is pretty simple. And if someone cant pass a dot physical they must be dead because I see a pretty fair share of guys out here in terrible shape. Not all obviously but I have seen guys have to stop to catch their breath walking from the cab to the back of the trailer. I understand that there are legitimate medical conditions that prohibit getting a health card, if thats the case disregard the previous . But the bottom line is getting a cdl is not that difficult and does have its advantages. John

The CDL is not the problem, it's the other can of worms that it opens up. What about the DOT number, log books,trip reports ,annual FMV inspections,fuel stickers and milage reports, apportioned plates,commercial insurance and a dozen other things you run into when you go over 26,000. There is no way to be 100% legal if they want to find something. I work on Commercial trucks all the time and you won't believe some of the horror stories the drivers tell about confrontations with the DOT.

Im not trying to beat a dead horse and everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But I do know the horror stories. I have even told a few. Dot officers can be royal pricks I have seen it. I have also met a few of the nicest guys you could ever know. I drive a big truck for a living. Have for almost 7 years now. The thing that bothers me most about questions like this is the guy that is driving a commercial vehicle without the cdl and then complains to no end that he got caught and has to pay the piper. Like it or not the laws are in place. And they will probably get changed again next year confusing us all again. Still we have no choice but to abide by them or give it up.
