Rules and Regulations

You are no longer able to go into most physician and urgent care offices for DOT physicals. Only a certified medical examiner may perform your physical. It is mandated by federal guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the Department of Transportation physical exam. The purpose of this test is to check whether you are physically capable of driving safely now and in the near future. Passing the exam successfully means you do not have to take the exam again for 24-months.  If you have a health issue becoming worse in the in the near term – you will be required to take the exam sooner.

Why a change in the rules?

In 2010, there was an increase of commercial vehicle accidents over 500,000 with over 5,000 resulting in deaths. After a thorough DOT review of the records, they noted drivers and exam forms did not match in all cases, and health issues were a major cause of the accidents. The Federal Highway Administration reviewed the rules, updated changes and increased enforcement to enhance safety to the drivers and to those who also share the national road ways.

The current changes include:

1. Full disrobing to under clothing to note scars of torso or old surgical repairs.
2. Letters, if needed, from specialist to be included with report. HTN, NIDDM, Vision, Hearing, Sleep Apnea, Obese, etc.
3. Physical activities to be noted to include walking in a squat position; commonly called the duck walk. To show capabilities to perform activities of climbing in and out of cab. Can you lift the hood of cab, or bend down to change tire or apply snow chains, etc.

*As of May 21, 2014 new enforcement of requirements in place for the safety of our drivers and those who also use the nations roadways; are electronically collected in a data base for review in the event of an accident.
