DOT Physical Exams: Is your doctor certified?
In 2012, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) introduced a new safety regulation requiring all health care providers who perform medical examinations for interstate truck and bus drivers to be trained, tested, and certified on the specific physical qualifications that a affect a driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle. The new regulation was effective as of May 2014.
Interstate truck and bus drivers can receive certified DOT medical exams at Amery Hospital & Clinic as well as clinic locations in Clear Lake, Luck, and Turtle Lake, from DOT certified providers.
To find out more about the new requirement and standards, please visit the US DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website at www.fmcsa.dot.gov.
