SAP Program NEW
by: Anonymous

As an Expert in DOT Compliance and someone who teaches companies how to hire drivers I am going to comment on the SAP process just fyi... First off going to a Counselor does NOT mean you have completed a SAP. All SAP programs have the initial counselor interview, typically 6-8 weeks of classes and then up to 5 years of follow up testing that must take place. The minimum for follow up testing is 6 times in a 12 month period. As a driver you are not allowed to know the schedule for the follow up testing and must be available to be called in to complete the observed follow up test at any time over the next 5 years. If you have been terminated by an employer it is your responsibility to find a third party that will manage this for you which will be pretty expensive to manage as well as for the actual testing typically. Most employers cannot hire a driver that has failed or refused a D&A test because they may lose their insurance altogether so it is not because these companies suck, it is because you are now considered High Risk and they will lose their ass if you get in a crash even up to 10 years later. At the end of the day my answer is don't screw up your entire life by doing stupid crap; although I do realize that people make mistakes and really do want to fix it properly; for those drivers here is my suggestion... Complete the counselor and classes portion and then find the 3rd party to manage the follow up process (you are going to pay a small fortune and sometimes the counselor may be able to recommend someone to manage it for you). Look for smaller companies and be 100% honest with them on your background and be prepared to show all documents and give them the contact info for the counselor and the 3rd party manager. There are reports and recommendations you are not allowed to see. You are required to inform all prospective employers of your true history and are not allowed to drive a CMV for anyone(even your own) until a negative Return to Duty Test has been received and you are in a follow up testing program. If you lie on your application and a crash does occur you could go to prison so I do not recommend that. Even if no crash occurs and the DOT somehow figures out you did not do all SAP recommendations you could lose your CDL for life and be considered an "Imminent Hazard". It is your responsibility as a professional truck driver to make sure your employer or 3rd party properly follows the program for you. The employer is not responsible for your CDL only that they not allow you to drive for them unless regs are being met. Below is a link to the FMCSA website to explain more. Hope this was a little help in understanding the process! https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/title49/section/382.605

SAP
by: Anonymous

I Have a clean driving record, no accidents, and 1 speeding 5 MPH over the limit. 0 points, A old friend came over one night, we snorted a line, next day into work. I had a random test and failed. I got fired, I went to SAP.

He said I didn't qualify for a long term program. He said do 6 self help meetings, and you'll be able to drive again. What he didn't say was "NO ONE" will hire you.

I apply 3 to four times a day to places, my phone rings constantly. maybe I'm saying the wrong things. (like) I had to go to SAP I'm just trying to be honest. There is nothing but that on my record. No DAC nothing!!

Some say call us in 3 years others say 7 years. seriously? and to juice it up, I can't collect unemployment.

And they say honesty is the best policy. Who decided SAP was good for a first offense. Frustrated in Pa.

SAP IS A USLESS PROGRAM.
by: Anonymous

Once you're out of the program do not expect SAP to help you out. I gave them $500. I went to their program. I am denied implant Everywhere I Go.

I should have said my $500. And start a new career. Government!! It's ridiculous.. they give you the ok to drive again. But that's another story trying to find a job. They will not defend you or help you.

True crimnials get better treatment
by: David

I had my job 14 years, I got randomly tested and failed a test. SAP take your money and runs, they don't give a damn about you or your career. I have been looking for 3 months it is my new full-time job. I gave them $500. For three months worth of Misery. They do not help you find employment.

I just wish someone would have told me you'll never drive again for a first-time offense. Sucks

Aparently I'm not alone
by: Anonymous

I failed a drug drug test after being a new hire for 3 weeks. I was walking across an unplowed-unsalted snowy parking lot and slipped and jacked up my knee. It was bad but not broken, however it was too messed up to preform my duties of heavy loading of my truck. So I was let go. I'm was returning to the field after 20 yrs.

So there were many things I was ignorant about. So I'm in the same position as everyone else here. How to get back driving. Now this happened about 9 months ago. I didn't even know about the SAP until I started digging in.

Of course I haven't done the sap yet only because I hear its nearly impossible to get back on the road. I have a perfect record with Haz/Tanker. The whole crazy thing is while I was not driving I was running a drug and alcohol facility.

Anyway, I really want to go back on the road. Son who will hire me and is it worth the the cost to do the SAP. If you have any positive advice please send it along here rich101@myway.com Thank you.

by: BLACXKCOBRA

Yes I did a SAP program cause of a mistake but I did all the requirements but I don't understand if a person did all the classes and went through a SAP program why don't the Federal Government remove any marks off your record if u did the program.

I know there are a lot of honest people in the world that fall from grace but we don't have to be punish for it much as they r needing drivers to move freight and the system isn't fair against those who want to get back out into the game so yes if trucking companies are hiring felons and giving them a chance where r the companies that can hire people who went through the SAP programs, or does there need to be a company open to get all SAP people a 2nd chance to get back on the road again since states r reporting on you state record now, but if no one hasn't broken any law's why punish those seeking work in the trucking field again, but if any got info on companies that give truckers a chance you can email me at blacxkcobra@gmail.com and my record is clean hazmat to

Looking for options for my husband he has completed SAP Due to a incomplete urine sample. He couldnt " go" when asked due to dehydration and meds so it was considered a positive result. He is a 55 yr old man and has never done drugs of any kind nor does he drink. Has a job but the company looks to be going down and need to find something else to go to if it does. No accidents at all. No tickets in 5 yrs. Experience in crude oil, frac sand, flowback water , drilling mud and cement for 21 yrs. Any suggestions?

Trucking companies that will hire drivers after completing SAP
by: Hervy

Yes Jerry there are trucking companies that will hire you after completing the Substance Abuse Program.

Congratulations by the way!

Of course it will not be smiled upon by all of the trucking companies. Just get a trucking jobs book from your nearest truck stop and do some calling.

Also check trucking jobs for felons, the companies mentioned are sure to hire a person out of SAP if they will hire felons.

Also, it depends on what other things that are on your record as to how well they will absorb the news about completing SAP.

Either way, regardless of the situation completing it is a step in the right direction. Keep your head up as you knock on doors to find the opportunities that await you.

If you do additional things that also show that there is a new you.... maybe volunteer at a place that you find gratifying or where you think you can make a difference or attention a class of personal development, etc..... will only increase the odds that you are seen for who you are now.

You know sometimes it is hard for people to see people the past. It's best to try and help see by finding ways to say,

"Look at me now, I am going in a new direction because my destination is a different place. I have goals and bright future. Help me if you wish or move out of my way, because there is nothing that can stop me."

Meanwhile just take it one step at a time and keep pushing forward man.

Best of luck,
Hervy
