DOT Physicals in Union City
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) updated the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations in May 2014 to more accurately address the physical demands of driving a commercial motor vehicle (CMV). The new regulation states that drivers must receive DOT physicals from FMCSA-certified health practitioners.
In conjunction with the new rule, FMCSA created a National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners so you can look up medical centers near Union City that are certified to administer DOT physical exams. Among them are Astrahealth Centers, which employ some of the most experienced, high-quality medical staff in New Jersey. We’re here to help you fulfill the need for DOT physicals near Union City.
DOT medical exams are pretty straightforward. Simply set an appointment with one of our DOT accredited physicians and come in for your physical. The doctor will examine your health history and perform a thorough physical exam. You need to meet all the necessary health requirements in areas such as vision, hearing, digestion, respiration, heart health, and kidney and liver function to keep your commercial driver’s license (CDL).
After the DOT physical in Union City, Astrahealth takes care of filling out the Medical Examination Report (MER) and submitting it to the DOT. Then, you are cleared for your CDL medical card and permitted to continue driving your CMV.
DOT physical exams generally last two years. The presence of a chronic condition may require extra monitoring, which might mean you need DOT physicals more often than that.
