For the purpose of minimizing commercial vehicle related injuries, crashes/fatalities, Department of Transportation announced a new safety rule. All medical examiners who perform Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals are required to be specifically trained, tested, certified, and then registered with the national registry by May 21, 2014.
Examiners will be expected to be familiar with all your physical and mental qualifications/disqualifications and how those treatments may affect your ability to drive safely. The examiners are also required to retain copies of various health conditions such as cardiac and respiratory health, muscular functions, vision and hearing.
Drivers must pass the DOT exam at least every two years in order to receive their medical certificate and must carry this certificate as proof that they passed. Before coming to your examination, it will be necessary for you to provide a list, to the examiner, of those medications you are currently taking and the reason why you are taking them. A detailed past medical history will be necessary as well.
