Advice and Tips for your upcoming DOT physical exam:

  1. Are you a smoker? We STRONGLY suggest that you stop smoking prior this exam (specialized testing is required of all those >35 YOA who identify as current smokers, delaying your certification significantly) and document that you quit smoking on your history form.

  2. Worried about your blood pressure? 

    1. Make sure you take your blood pressure medication.

    2. Cut back on salty foods, nicotine, caffeine (coffee and energy drinks)

BEING PREPARED FOR YOUR EXAM WILL MAKE IT “HASSLE FREE”:

  1. Do not forget your glasses and/or hearing aids if you use them.

  2. Drink a glass of water before you leave (dehydration can alter your urinalysis).

  3. Bring any previous waivers or exemptions.

  4. Bring any documentation from your PCP regarding any existing health conditions*(see below).

  5. Bring the contact information of your doctors in case we need additional information.

  6. Wait to use the restroom.  You are required to give a urine sample.

*DIABETIC: Recent HbAIC and fasting blood sugar blood readings for NID diabetics
