When you arrive, you’ll fill out the first two pages of the Medical Examination Report form. Use the form to indicate any prior or current health conditions. These may include:
- Brain injuries or neurological disorders
- Epilepsy or seizures
- Loss of hearing
- Heart attack or heart disease
- Impaired vision
- Kidney disease
- Digestive problems
- Depression and anxiety disorders
- Dizziness or fainting
- Missing limbs
- Spinal cord injuries
- Chronic pain
Be honest in this form. If you’re not, you could have your certificate revoked.
Your doctor will go over this form and ask additional questions. He or she will check your lung function, heart, digestive track, and coordination. Some basic tests are also included in the exam:
If the driver passes all the tests in the physical, he or she will get the ME Certificate. In most cases, it’s good for 24 months. Although, sometimes, the physical examiner will certify the driver for a shorter period if they find certain medical conditions that warrant monitoring.
If you have more specific questions, please give us a call. We look forward to scheduling your next DOT Physical!
