Now for the first-time: A podcast focusing on driver health that has plagued the trucking & bus industry for years.

PrePass has joined The Trucker Trainer™ and driver health advocate Bob Perry to create a new podcast called FIT DRIVERS. Recognizing the need to address the professional driver health crisis, FIT DRIVERS podcast brings together industry leaders ranging from transportation carriers to governing officials in a quest to uncover the issues surrounding commercial driver’s license (CDL) driver retention and what can be done to address this industry-wide issue.

“I am thrilled to partner with PrePass as the title sponsor of the FIT DRIVERS podcast,” said Bob Perry, founder of “PrePass is the perfect sponsor because of their focus on transportation safety and efficiencies, which aligns with the mission of – supporting driver health and safety. We’ve developed a robust podcast format to immediately address the health issues of this underserved population and discuss what we as an industry can do to keep drivers in the driver’s seat instead of sidelined on the couch.”

According to a recent Medical Card report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), nearly 50% of CDL drivers operate on a one-year card or less. This is a great opportunity to create health program solutions to increase retention rates.

“Driver health and safety go hand in hand. With vast experience in wellness and the trucking industry, Bob Perry understands the unique challenges drivers face in staying in shape,” said Bob Trent, senior vice president of external affairs for PrePass Safety Alliance. “PrePass is proud to be a title sponsor of Bob Perry’s new podcast, FIT DRIVERS, which will provide carriers and drivers with the specific tools to support their health and safety.”

The FIT DRIVERS podcast will release new episodes each month and can be accessed from Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, or wherever you listen to your podcasts.

FIT DRIVERS is an organization that is committed to protecting drivers’ livelihoods by helping CDL drivers make better health choices. Founded by Bob Perry in 2022, FIT DRIVERS addresses the overall wellness of a CDL driver through health coaching programs, disease management programs, incentive programs for drivers, and the CDL Health Scanner tool.
