The US Department of Transportation sets the following guidelines:

  • CDL holders (Drivers) must have 20/40 correctable vision in each eye. Glasses or contact lenses are permitted.
  • Drivers cannot be a diabetic on needle-injected insulin unless accompanied by a waiver by endocrinologist; diabetes controlled through a diet or oral medication is permitted.
  • A driver’s blood pressure must be under 140/90. Prescription medication to control blood pressure is permitted but has limitations of at least one year.
  • Use of a Schedule 1 drug, amphetamine, narcotic or any other habit forming drug is not permitted.
  • If a driver has a current diagnosis of cardiac insufficiency, collapse, congestive cardiac failure or any other cardiovascular disease, he/she will be required to provide the Medical Examiner with a stress test (performed within the last 12 months) along with a release from the driver’s physician stating that he/she can drive a commercial motor vehicle without restrictions.
  • The Department of Transportation also requires clearance for drivers that have been diagnosed with the following conditions: sleep apnea, recent back injury, recent major surgery, a current hernia, or have had recent workers’ compensation claims.

How Long is the Exam Valid?

  • A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner’s certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a medical condition.
  • If the medical examiner finds that the person he/she examined is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), the medical examiner will furnish one copy of the results to the person who was examined and complete a Medical Examiner’s Certificate.
  • You must carry a current copy of your medical examination certificate with you when you drive.

If you need a Department of Transportation (DOT) Medical Examination, give us a call. We can usually see you the same day. Your exam should take about 30 minutes.
