driving a truck with poor hearing NEW

Harvey I hate you have hearing trouble but if your hearing is so bad that it might miss sounds like a horn siren it would be considered a hazard. For the US a doctor would test your hearing and if he/she thought it was good enough to be safe you could get a go on the medical card. disqualifications for drivers US

For Canadian law Canada National Safety Code for Motor Carriers.

There is a lot of new development in addressing hearing loss though. You might want to research is there is something that can be done to improve your hearing enough that you are able to get a waiver to drive.
