Program-Specific Admission Requirements

Educational and admission requirements vary from program to program. 

Truck Driving

  • Complete TCAT Application for Enrollment online
  • Complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online – the website is www.studentaid.gov; TCAT Morristown school code is 013891.
  • Complete and submit a Department of Transportation Physical (DOT Physical)—A DOT physical examination must be conducted by a licensed “medical examiner." To schedule this, you may contact your primary care provider to schedule an appointment but be sure you request a DOT physical since it is specific to the industry. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) form called the Medical Examination Report for Commercial Driver Fitness Determination is used for the DOT physical and does evaluate if an individual is physically qualified to drive a motor vehicle. In some cases a Skill Performance Evaluation (SPE) Examination may be required with the DOT physical. For more information please refer to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration at http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/.
