In accordance with The Federal Motor Carriers Safety Regulations (FMCSR) 49 CFR 391, any intrastate or interstate commerce drivers must pass a medical examination on a regularly scheduled basis, every 2 years or less depending on the medical status of the driver.
What do I need to bring to my DOT Physical?
All drivers need to bring a complete list of their medication, including doses and their doctors’ names and addresses. To save time, it’s also recommended that drivers fill out the health history portion of the questionnaire before coming to the clinic.
To make sure the exam can be completed efficiently, drivers with certain medical issues need to bring the appropriate documentation or materials. For example:
Drivers with vision or hearing problems need to bring their eyeglasses, contacts, or hearing aids for testing.
Drivers with diabetes need to bring the most recent lab results from their Hemoglobin A1C (HgAIC) and their blood sugar logs.
Drivers with heart-related issues need to bring a letter from their cardiologist that outlines their medical history and current medications, and indicates that they are safe to work.
