Exam Tips

  1. Do not drink, eat or smoke cigarettes at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment
  2. Wear your contacts, glasses and/or hearing aids to your appointment
  3. Complete Section 1 (Driver Information and Driver Health History) of the Medical Examination Form before your appointment.
  4. Bring a list of all current medications as well as the contact information for the prescribing provider.
  5. You may be required to provide medical records for certain conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, sleep disorders, neurologic conditions and psychiatric conditions. If you have these records, it would expedite your certification if you could bring them to your appointment. Patients with insulin-treated diabetes will need to have their physician complete an Insulin-Treated Diabetes Mellitus Assessment Form prior to certification.
  6. Do not wait until the last day to have your DOT physical, as you may not receive your Certificate the same day if additional medical records are needed.

If you have any questions, please call the office or visit the FMCSA website: www.fmcsa.dot.gov
