Truck driving school while on suboxone

by Ben
(Massachusetts)

Hey guys, I’m looking into NETTTS to get my CDL, but I’ve been on suboxone nearly a year now. I’m afraid of relapse if I get off this stuff, and it doesn’t impair my driving ability.


I’ve done some research as far as DOT physicians, and needing a letter from my prescribing physician stating that I’m ok to drive,

I’m just wondering if anybody out there has gone through trucking school in my position, and if so, were you able to get through it without being hassled for your medications?

Any feedback would be helpful. Thank you.

Suboxone is an opioid:
You won't be able to pass a drug test. Trucking companies will give you a urine or hair follicle or both, drug test.
You'll have to be completely off all opioids; legal or illegal, to qualify for trucking. Your body & hair will also have to be clean of opioids.
