DOT Physicals in Belleville
Your commercial driver’s license (CDL) gives you the authority to drive commercial vehicles for a living. The job has some unique physical demands. That’s why The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations regarding driver health and safety.
The new regulation states that, as of May 21, 2014 Medical examiners performing DOT physical exams must be trained and certified in FMCSA standards. That means not all doctors can perform DOT physicals in Belleville.
That’s why you should visit the Astrahealth Center in Belleville. Our medical staff is well versed in the current DOT regulations to ensure the exam is valid for you to renew your medical certificate, something you must do at least every two years.
DOT physical exams involve examining your medical history and testing you for any new ailments, such as hearing disorders, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and nervous system problems. You must meet all health requirements in order to pass the DOT medical exam and retain your CDL.
In some instances, such as if you have diabetes and require an insulin pump, you can keep your CDL, but a restriction is placed on your license. This helps ensure your safety along with those who share the road with you.
To help DOT physicals in Belleville go smoothly, we advise bringing your vision-correcting glasses, your latest MER card, a list of medications with the prescribed dosages, and any clearance letters required for chronic conditions before you can pass the exam.
