Commercial Drivers Fitness Medical Examination Report

Lourdes Occupational Health Center offers D.O.T. commercial drivers examination with Certified Medical Examiners. As of May 21, 2014 new enforcement of requirements in place for the safety of our drivers and those who also use the nations roadways; are electronically collected in a data base for review in the event of an accident.

You are no longer able to go into most physician and urgent care offices for DOT physicals. Only a certified medical examiner may complete the physical. It is mandated by federal guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the Department of Transportation physical exam. The purpose of this test is to check whether a potential driver is physically capable of driving safely now and in the near future. Passing the exam successfully means you only have to take the exam in 24-months, unless you have some health issue which could become worse in the in the near term - in which case you’ll need to take the exam sooner.

Why a change in the rules?
In 2010, there was an increase of commercial vehicle accidents over 500,000 with over 5,000 resulting in deaths. After a thorough DOT review of the records, they noted drivers and exam forms did not match in all cases, and health issues were a major cause of the accidents. The Federal Highway Administration reviewed the rules, updated changes and increased enforcement to enhance safety to the drivers and to those who also share the national road ways.

The current changes include:

  1. Full disrobing to under clothing to note scars of torso or old surgical repairs.
  2. Letters, if needed, from specialist to be included with report. HTN, NIDDM, Vision, Hearing, Sleep Apnea, Obese, etc.
  3. Physical activities to be noted to include walking in a squat position; commonly called the duck walk. To show capabilities to perform activities of climbing in and out of cab. Can you lift the hood of cab, or bend down to change tire or apply snow chains, etc.

What LOHC can offer:

  1. Competitive rate of charge.
  2. Largest number of Certified Medical Examiners in this area.
  3. Coordination of letters for the patient to have and to provide to their Primary Care Provider, and completion of the report for submission.

Health Requirements
To pass the physical for the CDL:

  1. Vision in both eyes as well as each eye individually needs to be 20/40, with visual improvement devices, such as glasses or contacts permitted.
  2. Ability to distinguish color is necessary.
  3. Need to be able to perceive a forced whisper at a distance of at least 5 feet.
  4. Maximum allowable blood pressure is 160/100. Use of prescription medication to achieve this threshold is allowed.
  5. Cannot have diabetes that requires insulin injections; diabetes controlled through a diet or oral medication is permitted.
