i have seen a tractor refitted for a guy in a wheel chair. the sleeper window was made to a large door that opwened to a wheel chair lift. he was able to wheel the chair to behind the driver seat and lock the chair into place.

i didnt get a chance to see the whole set up inside as far as driver controls.... brake pedal accelerator pedal and clutch pedal. this was about 30 yrs ago. before automatics were popular,

i dont know if the driver was otr or statewide, but it is certainly poswsible to get your truck made up to assist you to drive and pass the skill test.
