DOT Physicals in Hoboken
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated the Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. To more accurately ensure drivers can meet the physical demands of truck driving, they are now required to regularly undergo DOT physical exams.
DOT physicals are designed to assess the physical, mental and emotional health of men and women who drive CMVs. Problems in any category may affect the person’s ability to drive safely. Medical examiners who administer DOT physicals in Hoboken are specially trained in DOT regulations to prevent patients from being unfairly disqualified from their driving jobs.
In general, a DOT medical exam is valid for two years. If the medical practitioner identifies a certain condition that needs extra monitoring, the physical may be valid for less than the standard two-year period.
During DOT physicals in Hoboken, the doctor takes the driver’s health history into account. Drivers should expect to be asked about and tested in the following categories:
- Hearing disorders
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Lung, kidney and liver function
- Muscular disease
- Nervous system health
- Recent illnesses or injuries, including brain trauma
- Respiratory problems
- Vision acuity
