Advice and Tips for your upcoming DOT physical exam:
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.
Worried about your blood pressure?
- Make sure you take your blood pressure medication.
- Cut back on salty foods, nicotine, caffeine (coffee and energy drinks)
BEING PREPARED FOR YOUR EXAM WILL MAKE IT “HASSLE FREE”:
Bring the exam paperwork you printed and already filled out, your photo ID (driver’s license), and a list of your current medications.
Do not forget your glasses and/or hearing aids if you use them.
Drink a glass of water before you leave (dehydration can alter your urinalysis).
Bring any previous waivers or exemptions.
Bring any documentation from your PCP regarding any existing health conditions*(see below).
Bring the contact information of your doctors in case we need additional information.
Wait to use the restroom. You are required to give a urine sample.
