The Department of Transportation has high standards to ensure that those who drive commercial vehicles will safely operate their vehicles. Most employers who hire motor vehicle operators require the DOT/FMCSA physical exam when hiring employees. Our DOT Physicals are tailored to test driver’s physical state which may have a direct or indirect impact on their ability to drive a commercial vehicle. EG Healthcare’s DOT/FMCSA physical exams are given by experienced medical care providers who will have a detailed session with you to take an in-depth look at your medical history, perform a comprehensive physical including:
- Blood pressure
- Muscle strength and reflexes
- Chronic diseases
- Cardiovascular health
- Eye exam
- Urine test
Any driver who is taking medication or has undergone any tests/procedures in the six months prior to the exam should bring in all the pertinent documents and reports to the appointment. Drivers who use corrective glasses or contact lenses should also bring the same to the test.
Is a DOT/FMCSA Exam important?
If you employ commercial drivers, it is your responsibility to ensure that your employees are DOT/FMCSA certified. The DOT physical certification is a proof that your employees are fit to operate a commercial motor vehicle and also that your business is in compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA). If you are seeking to obtain a commercial driver’s license it is imperative that you pass the DOT physicals as it is required by law.
